Woodsy Autumn Engagement Session | Jill & Aaron | West Lafayette, IN

This was SUCH a special engagement session for me. First off, a little backstory. When I was about 15 years old, one of my friends from dance class asked me if I would take her senior pictures. I knew NOTHING technically about photography — I just enjoyed taking pictures for fun in my free time! It sounded like a whole lot of fun, so we picked a date and I showed up with my little Olympus mirrorless camera…

Downtown Chicago Senior Session | Anna

Any Star Wars fans here? I’ll admit I’m one! I can’t count the number of times I’ve been Princess Leia or Padme for Halloween :P If you’ve seen the movies, doesn’t the image above totally remind you of a scene from Naboo?! The columns, the ivy, the arched windows — it’s like we’re on set!

One of my favorite things about Chicago is that every corner can transport you to a totally different country, era, or even galaxy (lol okay I’m done geeking out now). That’s why I was so excited when Anna wanted to meet me in downtown Chitown for her senior session! We spent an evening running around the windy city, finding the best backgrounds, and chasing the sun. It was so much fun! I also loved getting to know Anna during her shoot. She is as sweet as can be and has the best style. Wait until you see the hat she brought; I’m obsessed with it! More Chicago shoots pleaseeeee!

Backyard October Wedding | Rachel & Austin | Indianapolis, IN

During a summer marketing internship that I had during college, I met a hilarious, warm-hearted, and hard-working chick named Rachel. We were on the same team and instantly became best buds. Rachel and I often chatted about her boyfriend, Austin, who she described as kind and funny and the one. Later that summer, Rachel went on her family’s annual fishing trip in Canada, and of course, she brought along Austin. EVERYONE in the office had their suspicions that she’d come back with a ring on her finger…

Downtown Summer Engagement Session | Haley & Dylan | Indianapolis, IN

I captured Haley & Dylan’s engagement pictures in downtown Indianapolis where their love story really took off after graduation. While we got awesome shots all across the city, my favorite images from the shoot have to be the ones we took at their home. Not only did their rooftop have an amazing view of the Indy skyline, but this is their very first place together, so it makes the photos even more significant. I love when my couples choose locations that are special to them!
