Rachel & Aaron | Winona Lake Engagement Session

I met Rachel through my husband’s brother and his wife a few times over the years, and when she and her fiancé, Aaron, reached out asking if I would be their wedding photographer, I was so excited! Rachel and Aaron are the absolute sweetest couple, and it’s obvious how deeply they care for one another. They are both musicians, and extremely talented folks. I felt so honored to get to spend the afternoon with them for their session.

When we were talking about where to shoot their engagement photos, they really wanted to have photos in Winona Lake, near where Aaron grew up. During college weekends, because Rachel’s house was a bit of a drive, they would spend time in Winona Lake, so this area became very special to them. And what’s not to love about this awesome lake town? We explored a few spots they loved, including some woods they love to hike, a tennis court as a nod to Rachel’s love of the sport, a concrete bridge, and a small pier out over the lake.

We lucked out with gorgeous weather, the tunes were going, and Rachel and Aaron were just amazing to work with. I love these types of sessions so much - basically getting to hangout with a cool couple for a few hours. We talked about funny stories from their childhoods, their wedding plans, and then Aaron’s mom and dad had us all over dinner afterwards, making the perfect end to a perfect session.

I’m so incredibly excited for their wedding coming up this summer!!! Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their session below.

Brynn & Spencer | Indianapolis Engagement Session | Newfields

Ok, so let me just start by saying that Instagram can be such a wonderful way to connect. I met Brynn online through an Instagram giveaway I did last year. She won free coffee on me, and after some mishaps getting the dang Starbucks gift certificate to show up in her inbox, we started connecting a bit through my posts and DMs. :)

Late last year, Brynn reached out that she had become engaged to her sweetheart, Spencer, and they wanted to work with me for their wedding! I was so thrilled, especially since I kind of, sort of, a lil’ bit knew her! :) They wanted to have their engagement session in February, and I scouted out a couple spots for us to meet to help them create the session that reflected them.

We met up first at General American Donut Company (one of my favorite local spots for donuts!) and we grabbed coffee and donuts while we chatted about their wedding in August, how they met, and the kinds of things they love to do. (They’re both current students, so basically studying takes up a lot of time for them. But who better to study with than your bae?!) After shooting there for a bit and an outfit change, we headed on over to Newfields for some outdoor photos. This was one day Indiana really came through, and we had a gorgeous mid-50s, sunny day complete with some snow still laying around on the ground. It was perfect!

Brynn and Spencer were SO fun to work with - easygoing, easy to laugh, lots of affection, and so comfortable with one another. I was so honored they chose me to be their wedding photographer, and I cannot wait for their wedding this summer! Enjoy some of my favorite moments from their engagement session below.

Lynn & Marcus Married - Marion, Indiana

At the end of June, on a hot but beautiful summer day, I had the honor of photographing Lynn and Marcus' wedding in Marion, Indiana. I met Lynn through a mutual friend last fall and we grabbed coffee to talk wedding photography. She struck me as being kind, genuine, and laid back, and I knew that working with her would be a great fit. She was just as laid back and kind on her wedding day, and it was obvious that she and Marcus loved each other deeply and were so excited to be getting married.

The day was hot, but the bridal party and bride and groom rolled with it and we got some gorgeous shots on the grounds of the venue, Hart's Celebration Center. We had so much fun, and the entire day was full of joy, celebration, and love. Love between the bride and groom, love from their family, and lots of love from their guests and friends. What a beautiful day it was!

I feel so lucky that I got to be a small part of their day, and I wish Lynn and Marcus so much happiness as they start their married lives together!
