Amanda & Chris // Salomon Farms Engagement

Amanda & Chris // Salomon Farms Engagement

Meet Amanda and Chris! We loved working with these two! Chris and Amanda go weeks apart without seeing each other as he works with trains for a living, traveling all over on trains for days at time. With his profession, you can imagine that Chris is a man’s man. He’s a rough and tumble kind of guy! So when it came time for their engagement photos, he was super sweet and decided to put extra effort into dressing up for his fiance! It was a big deal when he wore his dress shoes – ahh, the things love will make you do!

We met up with Amanda and Chris at Salomon Farms for their engagement session. We started on a long paved pathway where the sun peeked through the pine trees. These two wrapped up all cozy in a blanket too – It was super sweet. Then we moved down near the water of a creek at the farm for some photos along the water. We finished up with some photos up by the house: on the steps, on the front porch, and in front of the darling farm-styled home. We loved this session simply because of the happiness on Amanda and Chris’ faces. The fact that Chris put extra effort into his outfits and appearance for something so important to Amanda exemplifies how it’s the little moments of thoughtfulness that make a marriage (and us photographers) very happy! We have no doubt that these two are going to have an amazing wedding and even happier marriage. Can’t wait for your wedding this fall at Sylvan Cellars! See you guys soon.

Cheers,
-Dustin & Corynn

Sam & Paul // Foster Park Engagement

Sam & Paul // Foster Park Engagement

Meet Sam & Paul, one of our newest couples for the upcoming 2019 wedding season. We had a blast with these two and are so excited for their summer wedding on Fort Wayne Indiana.

We started our session off on a great foot and the good time continued through their entire shoot! These two laughed through all their photos which made the whole session super fun. We began taking photos on the bridge near Foster Park in Fort Wayne. From there, we took a walk to the other side of the park, but first we just had to get some pictures in the river – we couldn’t resist! These two were up for any and all picture ideas we had and had absolutely no hesitation. You can imagine how excited we were when these two were okay with getting in the water! Just check out how great those turned out. We went to the timeless and iconic Bridal Glen at Foster Park for some sweet photos with the heart shaped arch way and overflowing flowers of the gardens. We had to be kind of sneaky and quiet around the Bridal Glen however, because there was a wedding going on at the time of our session! It didn’t stop us from capturing the awesomeness of this gorgeous location and our super adventurous couple! The greenery and bright summery flowers of the park were a perfect pair for these two’s summer Engagement session in Fort Wayne.

Sam and Paul were laid back and so easy to work with – we seriously had such a great time with them! We wrapped up our session with the beautiful Indiana sunset – They turned out to be pretty epic! Thanks for an awesome session, you guys. We are so excited to be your photographers at your wedding next year. Let the countdown begin!

Paige & Andrew // Columbus, Ohio Engagement

Paige & Andrew // Columbus, Ohio Engagement

Meet Paige and Andrew!!

This lovely and laidback couple met in college and from there, they started a story all their own. Andrew asked Paige to marry him in Columbus, Ohio; what better way is there to photograph an engagement session than to go back to where it happened? As travel engagement photographers, we are always trying to capture the moments that mean the most to our clients.

We started our session under the bridge by the river in Bicentennial Park in downtown Columbus. Paige and Andrew probably came to this session thinking it was going to be simple. However, when we mentioned going under the bridge and not on it, they definitely thought we were a little crazy. Nonetheless, the photos turned out amazing, and their bold outfit choice really popped against the grey concrete.

We did many fun photos throughout our time together, even some of them where he proposed. To top it off, they were photobombed while posing along an ivy wall by two local children! The couple even invited them to join in on a couple of photos!

The wind was a bit unforgiving that day, but Paige was able to do an awesome job given the circumstances. We ended with an amazing landscape shot of the couple in front of the downtown Columbus skyline. They gave us every bit of love they have for each other, and it really shows in the photographs. They truly did turn out beautiful, just like them.

Paige and Andrew were a pleasure to work with! You can see their engagement session here. They will marry this fall in Fort Wayne, and we absolutely look forward to working with them again!

If you are in need of any travel engagement photographers, please do not hesitate to contact Dustin & Corynn Photography. We would be delighted to work with you!

Cheers,

Jessica & Brandon // Metea Park Engagement

Jessica & Brandon // Metea Park Engagement

Meet Jessica and Brandon! We could not stop laughing with these two – it was a blast. A little bit about these two, they met online and fell in love. They said it was pretty instant – When you know, you know! It’s so sweet to see how technology today has the capabilities to bring two people together – and for marriage too! We love of good modern day fairy tale.

We went to Metea Park in Leo for Jessica and Brandon’s engagement session. We love going here with our couples because there are so many pretty locations and trails – It always makes for a fun time! Adventurous and fun loving, these guys were up for anything! By the end, these two were actually in the water at Metea Park. As photographers, we appreciate a good wardrobe and these two had it. We loved Jessica’s pop of color in her yellow top and Brandon’s navy shirt. Their clothes complimented nicely just as their personalities do! Side note… Anyone who has ever worked with us knows that I, Dustin, roll out jokes like it’s my job. Jessica and Brandon were super easy to make laugh too – which meant they laughed at all my corny jokes. So we love these two, obviously.

Jessica and Brandon are getting married this fall at one of Fort Wayne newest venues – Union 12. We cannot express enough how excited we are to take pictures here – especially of Jessica and Brandon! We love a good venue and this one will be perfect for Jessica and Brandon’s fall wedding. We are looking forward to it!

Cheers,
-Dustin & Corynn

Emily & Max // New York Engagement

Emily & Max // New York Engagement

Hello! Meet Emily and Max. These two and their families originate from good ol’ Fort Wayne, Indiana (That’s how they heard about us). However, our engagement session with them was in none other than, duh duh duuuh…. New York City. Corynn and I travel everywhere for our couples, including big awesome cities across the country. These two flew me out to New York for their engagement photos. For Emily and Max’s session, we were especially excited. We lived in New York in the early years of our relationship so it’s always a blast going back. I enjoyed every minute of being there and loved hanging out with Emily and Max.

These two Fort Wayne natives live in New York City for Max’s finance career. He has always dreamt of working on wall street, so these two made it happen! Emily is lovely school teacher and hopes to follow all of her career dreams alongside Max. From what we have seen with these two, they have what it takes to make all their dreams come true (including having us as their awesome wedding photographers).

The weather was overcast as the day of their photos approached, but we managed to work around the weather with these guys. We were dealing with rain the day of, but Emily and Max made our job pretty easy despite the weather – just look at them! We all made the best of it and ended up with some really awesome photos! We, of course, hit all the fun New York locations. Can you guess where? The Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, and other cool spots in between. We had such a blast spending time with Emily and Max in a city so close to our hearts. We especially love that New York City Skyline (Check it out below)! We are looking forward to going back in September for your wedding! Thanks for an awesome New York session, you guys!

Cheers,
-Dustin & Corynn

Lily & Jace // Lake Freeman Engagement

Lily & Jace // Lake Freeman Engagement

Meet Lily and Jace! We had a blast with this Lake Freeman engagement session. Lily and Jace met through Jace’s sister, Gwen. Lily and Gwen have been friends for many years through cheerleading and school – They are longtime childhood best friends. (She’s the maid of honor, if you didn’t see that coming.) Jace was always in the picture as the ‘best friend’s brother’, but it wasn’t until the summer of 2016 where these two hit it off and thought “why didn’t we try this sooner?”. The majority of their relationship has been long distance, but now they go to school together – sort of. Lily studies photography at Bethel College and Jace goes to Notre Dame where he is studying Mechanical Engineering! Just a quick drive to and from, no distance required!

These two got engaged at Foster Park in Fort Wayne this last December. Jace had it set up to where both his family and Lily’s family were there to watch the whole thing go down, all to Lily’s surprise… We’re talking roses with notes, snowy stone pathways, heart shaped arches, Christmas lights, music… the whole deal. Needless to say, Lily said yes! Now we are their (awesomely cool) photographers! 

We drove all the way to Monticello Indiana for these guys’ engagement photos. We started at Jace’s family’s lake home down on the docks over the lake. We were loving the lighting! We then traveled to the local park and took some photos down in the water – it was awesome. Our favorite place we shot at by far was Indiana Beach, a Monticello gem! There were waterslides, a colorful sky lift, roller coasters, a huge bridge leading to the island, neon lights, and 80’s decor everywhere you looked. This place is special to Lily and Jace, as some of their happiest first memories together as a couple were here. We had a blast taking pictures of our intern and her fiancé. Excited for their Baker Street Station wedding in downtown Fort Wayne this Winter!

Cheers,
-Dustin & Corynn
