Kiersten & Roger
Fall Engagement Session
I'm so excited to be sharing Kiersten & Roger's engagement session today! These two have the cutest love story. They have been best friends since middle school and have been dating for the past 7 years. This past Christmas, Kiersten and her family were opening presents, when Roger surprised her with a small, square box. Kiersten opened it up to find a beautiful diamond ring! He proposed, she said yes, and now they get to spend forever together!
Kiersten & Roger are so fun to hang out with, so full of life, and SO in love! During their fall engagement session, it was easy to see the depth of love they have for each other. The entire time we were shooting, they were laughing, snuggling, and I even caught them smoochin' here and there ;) I cannot wait to document their wedding day next June!
Lauren & James met while working at their local grocery store. In Lauren’s first message to me, she said “I finally noticed him walk by one day, our eyes locked and the rest is history. I knew he was the one then.” Over five years later and they’re finally husband and wife! Lauren & James have such a natural chemistry and spread joy wherever they go. Their love is so strongly rooted in their faith and the foundation they’ve built together, and that love was present all throughout their day!
Sydney & Christian’s love story is one of faithfulness. Christian knew a long time ago that Sydney was the one for him and everyone else thought the same! Though time and distance often got in the way, Christian continued to pursue Sydney. Eventually, their friendship blossomed into love. On an epic trip to the Philippines, with the clear blue waters in the background, Christian got down on one knee and asked Sydney to spend forever with him. She said yes and everyone’s been in celebration ever since!
After a long winter, spring officially sprung on March 23rd, 2019. Abundant sunshine and blue skies created perfect wedding day weather, totally fitting for Megan & Robby’s relationship. Megan & Robby are the sweetest, most thoughtful, fun-loving couple ever and they deserved nothing less than the best. The morning started off with the girls munching on Chick-fil-a at Kathryn’s Bridal Bar while…
Maybe it has something to do with the coffee I just chugged or the fact that “Country Girl” by Luke Bryan just came on my shuffle, but I am SO dang excited to share Katie & Brian’s wedding today! Get ready, because this countryside winter wedding was one for the books!
I cannot say enough about how awesome these two are and how much fun we had during their rustic fall engagement session in West Lafayette, Indiana. Not only are Katie & Brian the up-for-anything, laugh through the cold, kind of couple that I LOVE capturing, but they’re also crazy about each other. Wanna know just how in-love they are? Well here’s how Katie described her fiancé to me:
During their colorful fall engagement session in Holcomb Gardens, it was so apparent just HOW in love these two are. Throughout the shoot, Eric kept saying things like “I love the pictures where Kristen is laughing! Those are my favorite!” In all of the photos, it’s so easy to see all the love and admiration Eric has for Kristen, and vice-versa.
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!
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…
I have a confession. It’s the middle of January and I’m definitely listening to jazzy Christmas music while writing this blog post. Only because this wedding was SO festive and going through these photos just made me wanna get back into the Christmas spirit! When Emily & Tyler got engaged December 1st, they knew they wanted to have a holly jolly wedding to celebrate their favorite holiday as well as their marriage. Exactly one year later, they tied the knot in the same church where Emily’s parents got married!
