Ballet Engagement Session at the Palladium in Carmel, Indiana

  Are you ready for something amazing? This shoot has been my creative dream for over a year, and I finally get to share it with you because the feature on Wedding Chicks is now live! When we moved to the Carmel area last winter, I was immediately entranced by the city center and the […]

Ballet Engagement Session inside the Palladium in Carmel, Indiana

  We created so many beautiful images for this session that I had to write a second post featuring more of the dramatic indoor spaces at the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts. From bright sunshine to soft shadows; from dancing in the spotlight to sitting alone in the empty theatre, this session […]

Summer Engagement Session in Westfield, Indiana

  Any engagement session that begins and ends with popping Champagne is all right with me! I absolutely loved working with Mary Kate and Joe, who share my love for laid-back summer days at home with the ones you love. We started out at their beautiful house in Westfield to capture a little slice of […]

Engagement Session at Irwin Gardens in Columbus Indiana

    I’m finally ready to share the last post from this lovely spring engagement session. After our stop at the vine covered trellises (in my previous post), we drove to First Christian Church, where Quintin and Hayli will be married in August. The building, constructed in 1942, was one of the first churches in […]

Spring Pear Blossom Engagement Session in Central Indiana

  Welcome back for the second installment of Quintin and Hayli’s engagement session in Columbus, Indiana! As you know, I’m pretty smitten with these two, and I have a tendency to go on and on about them. I’ll try to keep it short today and just say how much I love their sense of adventure […]

Ice Cream Parlor Engagement Session in Columbus, Indiana

  I don’t know many people who would start off a photo shoot by eating an entire waffle cone, but that’s exactly what Hayli and Quintin did. These two have a very playful, laid-back vibe, and they wanted their photos to capture that light-hearted spirit. As a native of Columbus, Hayli wanted to visit some […]

Fall Engagement Session: Chelsea & Aaron

I had a great time getting to know Chelsea and Aaron. I’ll be photographing their wedding in September 2018 at Meadowlark Gardens, but I hadn’t actually met them yet! They started researching photographers after I’d already moved to Indiana, but they still reached out, and I could tell right away that they were my kind of couple.

Engagement Session at the Indianapolis Museum of Art: Behind the Scenes!

This week I’m taking you behind the scenes so you can see what it’s really like to shoot (or star in) an engagement session. We will answer questions like: How do people kiss when they have over a 12-inch height difference? Why do men make such awkward faces during engagement sessions?

Engagement Session at Newfields (Indianapolis Museum of Art)

I absolutely love capturing engaged couples out in nature, and spring is one of the most beautiful times of year in the midwest. Layton and Chelsea will wed this summer in Northern Michigan, but they came down to Indianapolis for their engagement photos at the IMA a few weeks ago.

Engagement Session: Martha & Andrew

I was so flattered to be asked to photograph these two fellow creatives. Martha is an exhibitions manager at a large Manhattan gallery and Andrew is a musician, producer, and sound engineer. As we chatted throughout their session, I was embarrassingly ignorant about most of their favorite artists and musicians, but they were so warm […]
