Meet Jane & Jim! From the moment we met with Jim and Jane over coffee we knew we had to photograph their wedding. And It had nothing to do with the budget, or venue, however, I think you can tell by the photos that the Indianapolis Artsgarden is pretty fricking spectacular! The reason we knew that Jim and Jane had to join the roster of Dustin & Corynn brides and grooms was that they were authentic and crazy in love with each other, oh and they LOVE to laugh which is huge for Dustin because he thinks he is funny.
Jane & Jim’s wedding day went off without a hitch. We started the day at the Westin downtown Indianapolis where the ladies had gotten a hotel room to get all there hairs in place and their make up just right. But the best part was when Jane slipped into her dress and walked out into the room for all of her favorite people to see her for the first time. We then headed to Saint Peter & Paul Catholic church where these two lovebirds tied the knot. They then hopped on a trolley and off to downtown Indy we went. After an amazing time taking photos of these lovebirds, we arrived at our new favorite venue, Indianapolis Artsgarden! You may have walked through it or under it and didn’t even know. It is a giant glass dome in the middle of downtown Indianapolis intersection that is like five or six stories up off the ground, that on any ordinary day is just a public area connected to the circle center mall downtown.
Jim & Jane you guys were and continue to be such amazing people both inside and out. I’m not going to lie we both got a bit choked up during all the heartwarming toasts that were given in your honor. I hope once life settles with your new house and the honeymoon we can hang out.
And in case you missed their engagement session, it was equally awesome!
Drummmm Roll Please! Meet Allyson & Riley Heller! This beautiful couple decided to do things a little different than most and it was amazing! Allyson and Riley decided to have a backyard ceremony at their family estate for only close family and friends making it super intimate and special. They then had a gorgeous tented dinner party with the close friends and family prepared by the flipping amaze-balls Chef Alex Robertson. You will also see from all the photos the incredible details that Allyson included by enlisting the help of talented people like Rose’s Bouquets and All Occasions.
After the delicious dinner party, everyone jumped on a trolley to head to the reception at Parkview baseball field, where 200 more of Allyson and Riley’s friends and family would join them to party the night away. Oh but before we got on the trolley I talked Allyson into letting me take a photo of her and Riley in the pool, these guys were the best! But I think what topped this wedding for me was when Allyson & Riley did kart-wheels in the outfield of the baseball diamond!
This wedding will defiantly go down in the record books as one of our favorite weddings of all times! Make sure you click the link before to check out the rest of their amazing wedding day!

Dustin And Corynn Wedding Photography
Meet the newest Mr and Mrs DeMato! Kyle and Elizabeth were such a blast getting to know over the last year. They got married at the beautiful St Vincents Catholic church in northern Fort Wayne. We then drove around town taking some sweet photos as you can see. We then wound up at one of our personal favorite reception venues here in Fort Wayne, the historic Baker Street Station in downtown Fort Wayne.
It was at the reception that Kyle, in my opinion, “leveled up” and got everyone in the entire train station to come dance to his favorite song! It was truly an amazing night, especially since we were able to convince Elizabeth to be a bit daring and the results are the very last photo in this post (totally worth it).

Meet Allie & John! You might remember them from the amazing engagement photos we took of them last year. This fun loving couple is what every photographer wishes for in a bride and groom. They are sweet, down to earth, and are full of grace, oh and they laugh at Dustin’s dumb jokes, this is also a key to our success lol.
We started the day off separate: Dustin was with the ladies at the fantastic Felts estate while Corynn photographed the men at John and Allie’s house. We then joined forces at one of our favorite Catholic church near downtown Fort Wayne, St John the Baptist.
Following the wedding ceremony, the whole wedding party loaded up on a Catholic school yellow school bus to joy ride around downtown Fort Wayne. Our first stop was the brand new 07 Pub! Such a cool spot we can’t wait to go back and check it out again. Next, we hit up the Brass Rail and the lawn of the downtown Fort Wayne Courthouse for some beautiful wedding photos!
Now for the best part, the Reception. The War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne is one of our very favorite places for a LARGE reception, and this was large. It was an intimate gathering of the closest friends and family, all 400 of them LOL! We also did a photo booth at the reception and John and Allie had made giant cut-outs of themselves for it, so cool! Oh, and you know we have the coolest couple around because the flipping Mayor of Fort Wayne was at their wedding! Allie and John are a very big deal, you guys!
We just want to take a moment to thank Allie and John for choosing us to capture their amazing wedding day. We know that every couple has a multitude of choices on a wedding day and the fact that you guys chose us means the world to us.

Drum roll, please! Meet Jaime and Evan, you might remember them from their adorable Bluffton engagement session. When we met this couple for coffee, we knew we had to do there wedding. Jaime and Evan don’t know this but they have caused to us to rethink our entire brand and who we are as wedding photographers but in a really great and amazing way. Anyway more on that later, let’s talk about this off the hook wedding in downtown Fort Wayne!
We started our morning off with the lovely ladies at the Hilton hotel, where the awesome ladies from the Red Stiletto were crushing it in the hair and makeup arena. Please note the great photo I got of Hope, owner of the salon, nearly on top of our dear bride Jaime. Hope always goes the extra mile, see what I did there??!?!
After our time at the hotel we travel to one our favorite church in one of our favorite neighborhoods in Fort Wayne, St. John the Baptist in the 07! I think our photos pretty much speak for themselves to the reason why we like this church so much, plus Father Andrew is awesome.
After the ceremony, we traveled around Fort Wayne taking photos at a few places in the 07 and downtown like the courthouse and the famous gold doors. But the best part was after we finished taking photos we got to take a pit stop at the Hoppy Gnome for some killer tacos!
Fast forward 3 tacos we are celebrating like crazy people at the beautiful and historic Bakerstreet Train Station in downtown Fort Wayne. Also huge thanks to the guest who brought the present with the great wrapping paper that allowed a fun and unique ring photo. We ate, we danced, we loved getting to share in this amazing day with Jaime and Evan!

Teds Market // Chef Alex Robertson & Ryan Hawn
If these photos don’t make you hungry then you’re crazy. Last sunday Chef Alex Robertson and Ryan Hawn invited me to taste some wonderful dishes inspired by some tasty California beers, how could I refuse. So naturally I brought along my camera and photographed this beautiful food porn that was set in front of me. They served 5 dishes, each paired with a different delicious beer! This was truly an incredible culinary experience. I love that Fort Wayne has more and more creative people thinking outside the box and bringing fun events like this to the people. I also want to say something about the venue for this event, Ted’s Market, I had never been there but boy oh boy was it just awesome! Talk about a great space in a incredible area, Corynn is already trying to talk me into moving near by, especially if they keep partnering with Alex and Ryan for some of these pop up dinners.
We will be posting on our facebook page the next time these guys host one of these dinners, and you should check out Ted’s Market in the meantime! Yum town.
