Lindsey & Brandon || Vibrant Meets Modern Outdoor Wedding at Deer Park Manor, Bloomington

Lindsey & Brandon || Vibrant Meets Modern Outdoor Wedding at Deer Park Manor, Bloomington

If there is one word I could use to describe Lindsey and Brandon, it would be happy.

But not just in the normal use of the word. They radiate pure happiness. The type of happiness where you can't help but smile being around them. I knew when meeting Lindsey and Brandon that their wedding would be a special one, but I never would have been able to predict just how beautifully intimate and joyful their wedding would be. These two souls are so special, both so incredibly kind. They promised forever at sunset, standing under a majestic, old tree at Deer Park Manor in Bloomington, Indiana.

Carly & David || A Cozy, Moody Indoor Engagement Session on the Downtown Indianapolis Canal

Carly & David || A Cozy, Moody Indoor Engagement Session on the Downtown Indianapolis Canal

I have been dying to do an in home session, and Carly and David came along and made all my in home engagement session dreams come true! We spent some time on a dark, cloudy day inside their apartment along the downtown Indianapolis Canal, cozying up on the couch and playing with the cutest puppy on earth. Afterwards, we took a little stroll along the canal, stopping to admire all the charming little spots of this city we call home. 

So thankful for these kind souls. Carly and David are having a small, intimate wedding at the Skyline Club in February, and I can't wait. Intimate wedding set my soul on fire, and I know their day surrounded by their closest friends and family will be a good one. 

Friends, meet Carly and David. x

Lauren & Joe || A Golden, Fall Engagement Session in Eagle Creek, Indiana

Lauren & Joe || A Golden, Fall Engagement Session in Eagle Creek, Indiana

When I first met with Lauren and Joe, I immediately wanted to be best friends with them. And being an introvert, I don't say that lightly. We spent the majority of our first meeting laughing our faces off and bonding over photos of our pets. It was one of those meetings where I left feeling revitalized by the time spent in such good company, with a heart full of gratitude for what I get to do. By the end of the meeting, I knew the photos we'd create together would be magic.

07.20.17 || A Summer Trip to Milton, Florida

My favorite girls in the world, beaches, and sunsets: what more could I need?

Erika, Allie, and I decided to take a take a little road trip down to Florida this summer, and it was exactly what we needed. We had plenty to celebrate--Erika and I's college graduation, Erika's move to Japan (for a year or two!), and Allie's survival of another year of college.

Ashley + Chase || Fort Harrison State Park, Indianapolis Engagement

Ashley and Chase are my type of people. They are the type of people who are deeply compassionate for everyone they come in contact with. They aren't afraid to stand up for what's right and completely, wholeheartedly follow their passions. They live full of meaning and intention. Before their engagement session, we ate and laughed and talked about everything from wedding plans to school to future hopes and dreams and the environment. As an INFJ, I'm always wishing I could skip the small talk and get down to the deep, meaningful parts of a conversation. And I feel so fortunate to be a part of such a special time in Ashley and Chase's journey, sharing all the deep conversation and bonding over life's beautiful moments in between. 

So cozy up with a blanket, stroll through some photos, play this lovely song (their wedding song, and also, (not joking at all) my favorite song IN THE WORLD), and remember that the world is beautiful because of all the love in it. 

Ashley and Chase, thank you for trusting me during this session. Thank you for walking off the beaten path (literally), getting your shoes wet, and loving so deeply and openly.

Hannah + Zach || Indianapolis Engagement

The sweetest engagement session with the two sweetest people. Hannah and Zach's love story is ridiculously romantic; I'm sure it will end up being a hit romance novel at some point (with a movie deal to follow). I would write a little summary here, but how about you read it in Zach's own words instead

Just as Zach writes, "sometimes a story is too sweet to let it end." Hannah and Zach, I'm so thankful to be a part of your beautiful story. <3
