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

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!
