Allyson & Sam // Downtown Fort Wayne Engagement

Allyson & Sam // Downtown Fort Wayne Engagement

Meet Allyson and Sam! We had an absolute blast capturing their downtown Fort Wayne engagement session. We went all over the downtown area – even Promenade park! Keep scrolling to read about this adorable engagement session and see some of our favorite pictures…

These two traveled all the way from Chicago just to have us capture their engagement. It meant so much to us that they were willing to travel for their session, so we made sure to show them the best that Fort Wayne has to offer, we may have even tried to talk them into moving! Showing them around our local spots was so fun. We started off taking photos by some of the city’s beautiful art murals. (More and more keep popping up all over the city!) After this, we went on top of the parking garage above the art murals for photos with the sunset, then we headed over to Fortezza Coffee for some cozy coffee shop photos. Coffee is something really close to both of their hearts, so of course, we had to capture them at a coffee shop. We finished off their engagement session at the gorgeous Promenade Park, Fort Wayne’s newest park along the river.

Allyson wore a beautiful brown wrap dress with a bold black heel – Sam wore a grey sweater, khakis, and brown leather shoes. For Allyson’s second outfit, she wore a black sweater, jeans, and brown shoes, and Sam…. well Sam forgot his second outfit lol. These two had the best style. Not to mention, they were so easy and fun to work with. Capturing their love was easy as pie – We can’t wait to capture their wedding this fall. They will be getting married in Massachusetts!

We hope you all enjoyed reading about this sweet downtown Fort Wayne engagement session. We sure did! Until the wedding, happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Elise & Peter // Arizona Mountain Wedding

Meet Elise and Peter, one of our amazing 2020 couples! We had the awesome privilege of capturing this fun Arizona Mountain Wedding. You can view all of their wedding photos here (CLICK ME), but our favorite moments are in the photos below. We also had an awesome time working alongside Daniel Martinez Hernandez, Elise and Peter’s wedding videographer (instagram: @shotbytruly). Read on for all the details of this sweet Arizona wedding.

The day’s events were held at The Paseo, an awesome wedding venue that sits near the Superstition Mountains and the Sonoran Desert. It has awesome getting ready spaces as well as picturesque views, a modern and stylish facility, and a stellar staff. Elise spent the morning getting ready with her favorite people. After getting her hair and makeup done, Elise put on her dress with her mom and bridesmaids. She paired her dress with simple accessories for an effortless glam bridal look. As everyone finished getting ready, guests began to arrive. Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony! The florals were delivered before the ceremony and were absolutely stunning. J Barry Designs created such beautiful arrangements for Elise and Peter’s wedding day.

Guests found their seats, then Elise made her way down the aisle towards the love of her life. The two exchanged vows, performed a candle lighting ceremony, kissed, and broke a glass, a common Jewish tradition, to symbolize the foreverness of their marriage! As guests enjoyed the cocktail hour on the patio, Elise and Peter signed their marriage license and captured family portraits. During cocktail hour, Elise and Peter added a super sweet addition to their wedding day… A Wedding Burro, courtesy of Haul N Ass Productions. Afterwards, we had a little portrait time with the wedding party and then some portrait time with Elise and Peter. Then it was time to party!

Reception time! The cocktail hour ended and guests made their way inside the main event space at The Paseo. Everything was decorated beautifully by Lace and a Barn. The food for the evening was catered by San Tan Brewing Company (which was so good). The wedding cake and other desserts were made by Piece of Cake Desserts – check out some of their other wedding cakes here (CLICK ME)! There were toasts, a singing performance, and tons of awesome dancing. As added entertainment at the reception, there was even a photo booth with fun props and an awesome backdrop, courtesy of Snap Booth in Arizona. It was one heck of celebration if we do say so ourselves. The DJ, Downtown Browne Productions (DJ Tempo Tim), had every guest on their feet and on the dance floor. It was a party!

It was an honor to capture this beautiful Arizona Mountain Wedding. Elise, Peter, their friends, and family were all so awesome to work with. We loved getting to visit your beautiful state and capture your wedding day. We hope you enjoy these photos for years to come. We wish you guys many years of a happy marriage!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Maria & Kevin // Snowy Downtown Engagement

Maria & Kevin // Snowy Downtown Engagement

Meet Maria and Kevin! We met these two at the Grand Wayne center in downtown Fort Wayne. It was cold, but really snowy. These two really wanted snowy engagement photos so we were so thankful that Fort Wayne got some. Come read along with us as we share some of our favorite photos from this snowy downtown engagement session…

We met Maria quite a few years ago when we captured her sister’s wedding! Christina and Ben and their families were awesome to work with, so we are so excited to see them again at Maria and Kevin’s wedding (Click HERE to see their wedding photos). Any time that we get to see our past couples and see how their marriage has grown, it’s a great reminder to us about how awesome our job is. The Grand Wayne Center is an awesome location for photos. Maria wore a sparkly strapless blush colored dress while Kevin wore a sharp black suit – They looked amazing! After getting some photos inside the Grand Wayne, these two bared the cold, snowy weather with us for some photos outside. Luckily, Maria had a cover up to wear to stay warm!

Since we were downtown, we walked over to the Cathedral down the street for some portraits. They will be getting married there in June, so we thought it would be fun to capture their engagement there as well. The botanical conservatory gardens were right across the street, so we headed inside for photos and warmth! While at the gardens, these two changed into something more cozy. Maria changed into jeans, black boots, and pink sweater and Kevin changed into a navy quarter zip sweater and jeans. We headed outside the gardens for some more photos in the snow, then called it a day!

We were so excited to capture these two’s snowy downtown engagement, but we are even more excited to capture their Fort Wayne Country Club wedding this June. We hope the rest of your wedding planning goes smoothly. See you in June!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Stacey & Josh // Headwaters Park Engagement

Meet Stacey and Josh! This Headwaters Park Engagement session in downtown Fort Wayne rocked. We loved working with this sweet couple and can’t wait for their wedding in January! Get ready for some adorable photos from this session!

We met up with this two at the awesome Headwaters Park in downtown Fort Wayne. The fall colors were so beautiful! Since Stacey and Josh are getting married in the winter, having their engagement photos done in the beautiful Indiana autumn will be a wonderful contrast!

After getting some photos done at headwaters park with all the fall beauty, we headed over to the newly decorated alley next to 816 Pint n’ Slice in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne. There are pretty paper lantern lights hanging from wall to wall and new artistic murals decorating the buildings’ walls. After photos in the alley, we headed to one of our favorite spots – The top of the parking garage! You can see the whole city from here. It’s quite a special view, especially at sunset.

Stacey and Josh will be getting married this coming January in downtown Fort Wayne. We loved capturing their Headwaters Park engagement – We are so looking forward to capturing your big day. Best of luck with planning! See you two soon.

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Sophia & Brenden // Leo Engagement Photography

Meet Sophia & Brenden! We met Brenden a long time ago at one his his relatives’ weddings – We were photographing it of course. Anyways, what an awesome session! Read on to learn more some sweet Leo engagement and learn more about Sophia & Brenden!

Sophia and Brenden met while attending Leo High School. We thought it was a great idea to do their session at the one and only Metea Park, since it’s so close to Leo which holds a special place in their hearts! They met up with us at the beautiful Metea Park right at the peak of fall here in Fort Wayne. It was cold, but you’d never know by looking at them! The park was absolutely beautiful at this time, but Sophia & Brenden were the ones who made it all magical (proof in the photos below).

Near the end of our sessions at Metea Park, we always take our couples to the beach and pond area. It was cold. Very cold. One of us had jokingly said, “Want to get in the pond?”, to which Sophia responded “I was hoping you’d ask”. She wanted that specific shot, so of course, we had to deliver! Despite the cold temperatures and even colder water, these two ran in to the pond for some photos. One of the last photos is them running out of the water – and yes, they were very happy to get out.

When these two got engaged, they initially picked a later date! They were just too excited to get married though, so they moved their wedding date up to August! It is a beautiful time to get married and we cannot wait to capture all the sweet details of their big day. This Leo engagement session was everything we hoped it would be and more. Happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Marissa & Ryan // Fall Fort Wayne Engagement

Marissa & Ryan // Fall Fort Wayne Engagement

Meet Marissa and Ryan! This fall Fort Wayne engagement session was a blast – Even though they are from around Fort Wayne, they drove all the way from Anderson Indiana where they go to school just to have us photograph their engagement! Read on to learn how Marissa and Ryan met, their plans for their future together, and, of course, see their photos!

Marissa and Ryan had two awesome outfits. They were very cozy for fall and gave such a warm feeling to the photos! Marissa’s first outfit was a grey sweater, jeans, and some brown boots while Ryan wore a black and white flannel, jeans, and some boots. Their second outfits were great too! Marissa wore a flowy long sleeve white top and black leggings. Ryan wore a brown long sleeve shirt with black pants. Needless to say, these two knew how to dress for cozy fall weather!

These two are both finishing up their last year at Anderson University in Indiana. They actually met while at school! They drove all the way to Fort Wayne for their engagement session with us. We were so excited to meet up with them at Metea Park where the fall colors were at it’s peak! Everything was just glowing with all the warm tones of autumn in Indiana, so it was perfect for some engagement photos. At the end of their session, they were even willing to get into the water of the beautiful pond at Metea Park. It was super cold, but they had such great attitudes about it!

Marissa and Ryan will be getting married next summer at Certuri’s in Fort Wayne, an awesome wedding venue with nice getting ready spaces and an awesome reception area. We loved photographing this fall Fort Wayne engagement, and we can’t wait to capture their wedding next summer. We hope you enjoy your engagement photos – Happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn
