Hayley & Zach | Newfields and Holliday Park Engagement Session

I first met Hayley and Zach at a bridal show earlier this year. It wasn’t hard to forget them initially since Zach is so tall and Hayley has the most gorgeous hair and smile, but after meeting them for coffee at Provider to talk about wedding photography, I quickly realized they were one of those couples who are just kind and authentic from the get-go. They make you feel seen when you are talking with them, they are thoughtful, and they are so genuine. When they decided to book me for their October wedding, I was overjoyed and so excited! I love working with people so much, and especially such kind and loving folks like Hayley and Zach.

For their engagement session, we met on a bright and slightly chilly spring day at Newfields, where the blooms were in full beauty and Indiana was showing off. I threw on music as always to help us all relax, and Zach, nervous at first, quickly warmed up and got comfortable getting photos taken, while sweet Hayley laughed and drew him into tight hugs and smiled up at him. Guys, this couple is amazing! We ended our session at Holliday Park, chasing some sunlight and talking about life, what they like to do for dates, and how beer is harder to drink than whiskey sometimes. :)

I’m so incredibly honored that I get to document their wedding this fall. I just know it’s going to be amazing because of these two!

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.
