Emily & Jordan // Home Engagement Session

Emily & Jordan // Home Engagement Session

Meet Emily and Jordan, one of our awesome 2020 wedding season couples! These two will be getting married this coming February. As you will see in the photos below, we had a lot of fun with Emily and Jordan during their session. Read along to learn about some details from this sweet Home Engagement Session…

Emily and Jordan live on a gorgeous property! We love when we get to explore new places, especially as photographers. There are so many fresh locations and new discoveries that lead to awesome photos! We started off in some of the woods on their property, where the sun was shining through the trees. (We had the most beautiful golden light for their session.) Their outfits fit the coziness of the season so well. For Emily first outfit, she wore maroon colored pants with a white top and a fun yellow cardigan. This paired super nicely with Jordan’s light blue jeans and red flannel shirt.

After taking some photos in the woods, we walked over to a tall grassy field where the sun was just golden. These two laughed and went with the flow the entire session. They were really up for anything! After this, we took photos by some of Jordan’s trucks. From tractors, to trucks, to utility vehicles, Jordan had it all! We also snagged some photos on this beautiful overgrown bridge. This space was really neat because of the lighting and colors – It was seriously so romantic.

Outfit change! Emily changed into blue jeans and a grey sweater, accessorized with a light grey and white scarf, while Jordan changed into a grey quarter zip! We took photos by the AWESOME orange and black truck then went over to this gorgeous part of the property where there was tall grass, trees, and sun pouring through the scene. I mean, just look at these love birds? We headed over to some silos and finished off the night with a gorgeous sunset in the field. Of course, we had to include their sweet pup in the photos too! Check out all that puppy love.

Getting to know Emily and Jordan during their engagement session was so awesome. We can’t wait to capture all the love on your big day! Until then, happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Hailie & Ashton // Family Farm Engagement

Hailie & Ashton // Family Farm Engagement

Meet the awesome Hailie and Ashton! We met Hailie when she worked for Rose’s Bouquets, an awesome wedding-only florist business in Fort Wayne. We continued to know Hailie when she switched careers to the Mad Anthony Hope House. We worked with her as a florist as well as in her non-profit career. When she and Ashton got engaged, we knew we wanted to be a part of her wedding story! This family farm engagement session was so fun – Read on for all the details.

When Hailie began planning their wedding, she wanted to have the wedding at her and Ashton’s property. As planning went on, she realized parking would be a big issue. She still wanted to include their property in their wedding story however, so we suggested capturing their engagement session there! This property was beautiful – It was full of character, greenery, tall golden grass, open fields, and came with two super awesome people (hint hint… Hailie and Ashton).

During their session, we got to meet their two adorable and MASSIVE mastiff dogs – Of course, they are very excited that their mom and dad are getting married (see pictures for evidence)! As the night went on, the sky got prettier and prettier. The sunset was stunning. At the end of the night, we were even able to talk Hailie and Ashton in to getting into their pond. The sunset glowed behind them as they danced in the water together. It was the best way to end the night!

We loved capturing Hailie and Ashton’s family farm engagement session. We have loved getting to work with these two on multple occasions – We can’t wait to work with them again on their big day! Happy planning.

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Marisa & Ryan // Promenade Park Engagement

Meet Marisa and Ryan! When these two contacted us to capture their wedding and engagement, we were so pumped! These love struck pharmacists are getting married at the Empyrean in January of 2020. Just wait until you see the photos from this sweet Promenade Park Engagement session in downtown Fort Wayne!

We are super excited for their wedding. January weddings are super special – It’s a new year! Why not start it by marrying your best friend? Their wedding will be at the Empyrean in downtown Fort Wayne. This venue is full of natural light, amazing service, and sits at the top of the PNC building 26 floors up. Not to mention, the food is amazing. Pretty views all evening long! Plus you get to work with their amazing event designer, Alex Kenny, does it get any better? 

We went to the historic Lakeside Rose Gardens and the brand new Promenade Park in Fort Wayne! The Lakeside Rose Gardens was beautiful at sunset. Many of the flowers were in bloom and we had the park nearly all to ourselves! We were so pumped to photograph at the new Promenade Park nestled along the river. The awesome city of Fort Wayne designed and built a beautiful park in downtown Fort Wayne along our famous three rivers! It is a beautiful park and we were happy to capture Marisa and Ryan here. To say we were excited to shoot at the new park is an understatement. It is so awesome!

We loved getting to work with Marisa and Ryan at their Promenade Park Engagement session! They seriously looked like models in all of their photos. We hope you enjoy these photos for years to come! Can’t wait to capture your wedding day at the top of Fort Wayne and see you two tie the knot! Happy planning!

Cheers,

Claire & Bennet // Concordia Seminary Engagement

Claire & Bennet // Concordia Seminary Engagement

Meet Claire and Bennet! These two made a long trip to Fort Wayne just for us to capture their engagement. Claire and Bennet recently moved to Indianapolis and are building a house! So they drove 2 hours to Fort Wayne and 2 hours back to Indianapolis all in one evening. Guess we’re worth it! This Concordia Seminary Engagement Session was a blast.

Corynn and I have actually known these two for a while. Corynn was in kindergarten with Bennet and I worked with Bennet at my first job in highschool – Banditos! When these two reached out to us about shooting their wedding, we were bummed because we were already booked! They still wanted to work with us however, so we decided to meet up in Fort Wayne for a fun engagement session.

We went to the beautiful Concordia Seminary for their engagement photos. This place offers so many beautiful views and locations for photo sessions – It’s a favorite of ours for sure! Not to mention, the sky was gorgeous on this night. Pinks, yellows, blue – It was one for the books. These two wore three different outfits throughout their session. The first, Claire wore a long, yellow floral summer dress while Bennet wore white shorts and a navy dress shirt. Their next outfit was a little more casual – Claire wore a white top, black pants, and some rockin’ leopard heels. Bennet wore a red flannel shirt and grey jeans. The third outfit was more formal. We love when couples add variety to their engagement session with pops of color and different styles. Claire wore a long, red jumpsuit with ruffle sleeves and Bennett wore dress pants, a white dress shirt, and a black jacket. These two looked SHARP during their session!

It was a blast working with these two while capturing their Concordia Seminary engagement. We loved seeing you guys again! Hope you enjoy your photos for years to come – Enjoy Indianapolis and your new home!

Cheers,
– Dustin and Corynn

Molly & Nick // Union 12 Wedding

Molly & Nick // Union 12 Wedding

Molly and Nick are married! Feels like we were photographing their engagement session just yesterday. This Union 12 wedding was a blast! The people, the venue, and this awesome couple made every aspect of this wedding so fun. Before you read about their wedding day though, you have to read about their sweet engagement session with us. You can view all of their photos and read about their session here (CLICK ME)! Now that you’ve their engagement session, you can read all their wedding details. Get ready…

The day started with Molly and Nick getting ready with their wedding party; Molly with her bridesmaids and Nick with his groomsmen. Union 12 offers a beautiful getting ready location to all their brides and grooms! It has several getting ready areas, lots of windows for natural light, and is conveniently located on the property. After Molly and her bridesmaids popped some champagne and added final getting ready details, it was ceremony time!

Union 12 has a beautiful covered patio for the ceremony location. One by one, groups of bridesmaids and groomsmen walked down the aisle as Nick anxiously waited to see Molly. Once everyone was in place, Molly’s mom walked her down the aisle. As soon as their eyes met, both Molly and Nick were beaming with happiness! Their ceremony had a lot of laughs and funny moments – It was a fun celebration! After braiding the cord of three strands, Molly and Nick were pronounced husband and wife! They kissed, and with joy walked back down the aisle. This time as husband and wife!

After their ceremony, guests headed inside to the reception. Once family portraits were completed, we took the wedding part outside for some portraits! It was really hot and humid during this time, so we worked as quickly as possible to capture the moment and get everyone back in to the air conditioning! After portraits, there were toasts, cake cutting, dancing, photo booth action, and more! At the end of the night, we took some epic sunset photos – Just wait until you see the photos! We loved every bit of this Union 12 wedding. Working with this group of people was a blast – We loved getting to know Molly and Nick through the awesome process of getting married. We hope you enjoy your wedding photos for years to come! Best wishes to you both!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn
