Notre Dame Engagement Session

Kim and Mike are super adorable. I loved how during their Notre Dame engagement session, they both progressivly became more comfortable in front of the camera. Mike is a Notre Dame graduate and Kim is a St. Mary’s grad. It was only fitting to have their engagement photos shot on Notre Dame’s beautiful campus. Congrats to you both and I can’t wait to photograph your Notre Dame Basilica wedding this summer.

Thank you Michael and Katherine for choosing me as your photographer. You guys are naturals in front of the camera and made my job super easy. The couple chose Potato Creek state park as the backdrop to their engagement session photos and this location did not disappoint. Early Fall scenery combined with a super cute couple is a recipe for greatness.  I look forward to shooting your wedding in May. Congrats to you both!

Winter Engagement Session

Indiana winters are brutally cold and snowy. Every winter I always tell myself, “Next year I’m moving to Florida!” Fortunately I am super blessed to work with amazing couples that can make a snowy winter engagement session smokin hot!

Joe and Erin are actually now Mr. and Mrs. Roe. They wed last year in August and I had the pleasure of photographing their beautiful nuptuials which I will share in a later post. Erin really wanted snow for the outdoor portion of their winter engagement session and just enough is exactly what she got. Joe and Erin were naturals in front of the camera and their winter engagement session turned out really cute! Thank you Erin and Joe for allow me to share these memories with you.

Engagement Photography

An engagement photography session is so much fun because it gives me a chance to work with my couples before their big day. During an engagement photography session, couples get the experience of being professionally photographed before their wedding day. When taking engagement photos my goal is to capture the natural interactions between the couple. For the most part I give minimal direction because  I love when couples laugh and smile naturally without force. That’s why it was so cute to photograph Sara and Ricky for their engagement photography session.

Sara and Ricky were great to work with. I could tell that they were both a little bit nervous at the beginning of the shoot. Ricky was actually full of giggles when we first started. The giggles were good because it allowed both of them to naturally smile and laugh without direction. By the end of the session both Sara and Ricky were relaxed and ended up having a lot of fun with the shoot.

I shot Sara and Ricky’s engagement photography session at the River Walk located in Mishawaka. We ended the session in the streets of the city’s downtown area. I loved the couples outfit choices and how the buildings in the street scene coordinated perfectly. Thank you Sara and Ricky for a great session! You guys did an awesome job and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding in April 2015. Here are a few of my favorite’s from this session. Enjoy!
