She went to Purdue, he went to Butler, but Rachel & Kyle’s mutual passion for medicine brought them together. These two lovebirds met during a post-grad fellowship after pharmacy school and have been inseparable ever since. This past summer, on a trip to Florida, Kyle invited Rachel to go for a walk on the beach. Before she knew it, Kyle was down on one knee holding a custom designed ring with heirloom sapphires. He asked Rachel to spend forever with him and of course she said YES!Read More
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…Read More

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!Read More

Kayla & Steven started hanging out and soon found that they had so much in common.

There’s just something about playing in the creek on a warm Indiana summer night. The sunlight dances off the ripples as the water slowly moves over the muddy bottom.

One of the coolest things about Danielle & Nik’s relationship is that they have been dating for EIGHT years!Read More
A few weeks ago, a guy named Jon contacted me about a something special that he was planning... a proposal to his girlfriend, Abigail!

These two met at work and David really had to pursue Emma for a while to convince her to give him a chance. They eventually started dating and now, here they are! Throughout their engagement session, David kept loving on Emma -- constantly kissing her cheek, holding her hand, and making her laugh. It was the sweetest thing!Read More
Her shiny diamond ring shimmers as her hand clutches the cold beer glass. It's a warm summer Saturday night, but downtown is surprisingly serene. He leans over and lands a kiss on her cheek. A local musician strums his guitar and sings a tune in the corner of the patio. What a perfect evening.
This was the scene for the start of Emily & Tyler's downtown date night engagement session.
Ever since Megan reached out to me last year, I've been dying to finally meet her and her fiancé, Robby. Even through email, I sensed that she possessed a contagious enthusiasm for life and had finally met that one person she was going to spend forever with. She was a Boilermaker, he was a Hoosier, yet fate brought them together in Indianapolis. One night, under the colored lights of Monument Circle at Christmastime, Robby asked Megan to be his wife and of course, she said yes.
The moment I finally met Megan and Robby at the start of their engagement session, I knew I was one lucky photographer!
Many people spend years searching for their soul mate, but Sami and Max were lucky enough to find each other right in their hometown. They met in high school and have been head over heels in love ever since! I can already tell that their wedding next summer is going to be AMAZING!
I was so excited to finally get to meet Sami and Max for their engagement session and gosh they are just the cutest! They were so fun, full of positive energy, and a complete joy to photograph! Sami's grandmother even handmade her pink skirt specifically for this shoot; it was such a special added touch!Read More
You know what I love about cold weather for engagement sessions? It's makes snuggling a necessity! Which then results in some pretty adorable pictures :P I had so much fun capturing Rachel & Austin's chilly, but cuddly & cozy engagement session. These two lovebirds are so easy-going, always laughing with each other, and were a complete joy to capture! They also brought their adorable pups along :) If Rachel & Austin's love can get them through the Indiana winter winds, I'm positive it will be able to get them through anything!
Rachel & Austin, thanks for being the coolest! I cannot WAIT until your October backyard wedding!Read More
I'm so thrilled to be sharing Megan & Nathan's autumn engagement session on the blog today!

I cannot handle these two! Mariah & Caleb are a match made in heaven and I had a BLAST capturing the engaged chapter of their love story! Their love for each other is so vibrant, joyful, and caring. Every time Caleb kissed Mariah, and every time Mariah snuggled up to Caleb, my heart melted. It's safe to say I could not be more excited to capture their rustic, October wedding day!
We decided to shoot their fall engagement session at the Indianapolis Museum of Art because it's a special place for Mariah & Caleb. When they were dating, they would often walk the trails of the Hundred Acre Woods and just spend quality time together! So their entire engagement session felt like a date (that I got to tag along for!)Read More
