Amanda & Grant // Big Long Lake Engagement

Amanda & Grant // Big Long Lake Engagement

Remember Amanda and Grant’s Headwaters Park engagement session this past spring? Well, as promised, here is part 2! If you haven’t seen their first session with us, click here (CLICK ME)! We absolutely adore capturing our couples in places that are super special to them. In this case, we captured Amanda and Grant at Big Long Lake!

When it came time to plan engagement photos, Amanda and Grant knew they wanted to capture it in two different locations – One in Fort Wayne and the other at their lake. What we love about having multiple session with our couples before their weddings is that we get to know them even more before their big day. We get to know what poses they like, whether our corny jokes make them laugh or not, and what makes them the most comfortable in front of the camera. At the end of the day, that is the most important thing! If our clients are comfortable in front of our cameras, that means we’re doing our job!

We loved working with Amanda and Grant, both times! We knew that their second session would be just as awesome – and it was! These two are getting married this November at the amazing Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum (super awesome classic car museum in Auburn Indiana). We can’t wait! Thanks for reading all of this and for viewing our favorite photos of this Big Long Lake engagement session. Happy planning!

Cheers,
–  Dustin & Corynn

Christina & Rachel // Downtown Summer Engagement

Christina & Rachel // Downtown Summer Engagement

Meet Christina and Rachel! Last year, we met up them to discuss wedding plans and get things going for planning. Since then, we have been so eager to get them in front of our cameras! We FINALLY got to this week. They killed their downtown summer engagement session with us – Read on for details and photos!

These two contacted us for one of the most popular days of the 2020 wedding season and got it booked right away. Christina is quite the planner – She has awesome binders full of wedding planning information and is on top of every detail. Christina is also extremely bubbly and kind hearted and Rachel has the coolest energy there is, which is just the cherry on top of why we love our awesome brides. And that’s why we are pumped that they chose our photo team to capture their wedding day!

We met up with Rachel and Christina by our favorite art mural covered alley way in Fort Wayne! From there, we just took photos of these two talking, and walking, and just being them. We stopped at a few of our favorite spots in the area, then headed to headwaters park for the later half of their session. Right before the session, it decided to rain! So we stood outside a coffee shop until it stopped. We knew we were going to be dealing with rain going into the session that morning, but prior to this, we had to reschedule their session several times, so knew we had to wait out the storms and rock with it! As we were finishing up photos, we saw some dark clouds roll in. Sure enough, as soon as we packed up and left the session, it poured down! We are so thankful for the break between the storms so we could capture Rachel and Christina’s engagement and not have to reschedule again!

Our awesome associates Lily and Michele will be capturing Christina and Rachel’s big day at the awesome 3 Fat Labs wedding venue in Greencastle, Indiana. It’s a gorgeous new barn venue, so we can’t wait to photograph there for the first time. We hope you enjoyed reading about this sweet downtown summer engagement and seeing the photos too! Check back in October for photos of Rachel and Christina’s wedding day! Until then, happy planning!

Cheers,

Tori & Derrek // White River State Park Engagement

Tori & Derrek // White River State Park Engagement

Meet Tori and Derrek! These two live down in Indianapolis, so we got to go to the city for a day. They’ll be getting married this coming September in Indianapolis too, so we are really looking forward to coming back to capture their big day. Read along as we talk about Tori and Derrek and see our favorite photos from this White River State Park engagement session…

We met up with these two at one of our favorite locations to photograph at in Indianapolis – White River State Park! We walked all up and down the beautiful canal for Tori and Derrek’s engagement session! It was a blast. We started by the museum and other buildings in the area, then stopped for an epic photo with the beautiful blue sky and puffy white clouds. From there, we walked all over the state park looking for some fun places for photos! We had a great time exploring the area with them. Towards the end of the night when the sun was going down, we headed over to monument circle at the center of Indianapolis – These night photos were epic! Monument circle was lit up all blue for 4th of July, so we had some fun light to work with.

Originally, Tori and Derrek wanted to have snowy engagement photos done over the winter, but when we showed all showed up for photos, it wasn’t snowing! We decided to wait until it snowed again, but then covid-19 happened and we were all in lockdown. So here we are! Even though their photos are snowy, they sure are sunny! We think they turned out pretty awesome. Don’t you think?

With everything going on with covid-19, even with cancelations and rescheduling, it was really sweet to hear that these two are still planning on getting married this fall. Some changes may have to be made to make things safer, but Tori and Derrek will be married this fall! So until then, enjoy photos from this sweet White River State Park engagement! Happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Julie & Justin // Sweet Summer Engagement

Julie & Justin // Sweet Summer Engagement

Meet Julie, Justin, and their sweet daughter. We met up with these three at the beautiful Concordia Theological Seminary on the northeast side of Fort Wayne. It was a beautiful sunny evening full of laughs and love, and more laughs. Read on for more details from this sweet summer engagement…

Julie, Justin, and their sweet daughter were a blast to work with. While I would photograph more engagement style photos, Corynn played with their daughter and even took some photos of her playing in flowers (pictured below) – It was super sweet. All three of them were all smiles the whole time. Even when we would prompt them to make a serious or straight face, it would be there for a second, then a burst of laughter followed. We are NOT complaining though – We love photographing genuine smiles and laughs! Julie and Justin made that part of our job so easy.

We loved capturing Julie and Justin’s engagement and their sweet family. They will be getting married this winter at the awesome Empyrean Events and Catering in downtown Fort Wayne. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading about this sweet summer engagement. Make sure to check out our favorite photos below! To Julie and Justin – We’ll see you guys soon! Happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Little model over here! She is the sweetest little girl – You can tell she is just the joy of their lives.

Are they not just the sweetest little family?

Check out the little rainbow that peaked out at us at the end of their session – It was magic!

Amanda & Nikos // Romantic Summer Engagement

Amanda & Nikos // Romantic Summer Engagement

Meet Amanda and Nikos! We met up with these two at Metea park on a beautiful, sunny day. Although their session turned into a mini session (because of bugs, bugs, and more bugs), these two rocked it! Read along to hear more about this romantic summer engagement and see some of our favorite photos!

Amanda and Nikos had such a natural chemistry together, so capturing their love and engagement was a piece of cake. Everything was just natural! We love when we got the opportunity to learn about our couples before the wedding day. Part of our job also means ensuring that our clients, couples, families, and whoever else is in front of our camera, is comfortable and having fun. We want everyone to feel their best, especially on their wedding day! This is our reasoning for including a complimentary engagement session in all of our packages. It helps us get to know our clients better, and helps our clients feel more comfortable on their wedding day! Needless to say, Amanda and Nikos were very comfortable in front of the camera – It was like we weren’t even there. We were just capturing the love!

These two had a wedding date picked, but because the corona virus, they decided to postpone until next year sometime so that all of their family and friends could be there. We are probably going to do another mini session with these two sometime since this one got cut a little short! We hope you enjoyed reading about these two awesome people and their romantic summer engagement session with us. Until then, happy planning!

Cheer,
– Dustin & Corynn

 

Aisha & Atif // Philadelphia Engagement

Aisha & Atif // Philadelphia Engagement

Meet Aisha and Atif! These two love birds flew us out to the beautiful city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After a whirlwind trip to Denver Colorado for another engagement session (CLICK HERE TO SEE), we flew to the east coast for an awesome Philadelphia engagement session with Aisha and Atif. It was a blast! Read on for details about these two and their wedding! Plus, see some of our favorite photos from their session below…

We had quite a weekend of travel with engagement sessions. After capturing Alex and Chris’ Denver Colorado engagement, we had the pleasure of flying out to Philadelphia to capture Aisha and Atif’s engagement. It was so fun exploring these beautiful cities! Check out these two’s incredible outfits! Can you spot the dinosaurs on Atif’s shirt? LOVE

These two were a blast to work with. They have a genuine love that shows through all of their photos (and one awesome wardrobe). Because of COVID-19 and the fact the these two are super hero doctors, we had a tough time finding time to do their engagement session. Thankfully we were able to get it scheduled!

We met up in the historic Center City, which is a part of downtown Philadelphia. We walked around the city, finding fun spots to photograph at. We even photographed Aisha and Atif on the “Rocky Steps” in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps that Rocky famously ran on. Lucky for us, the city was pretty quiet and not very busy because of COVID-19, so we had a ton of options for photos!

Aisha and Atif will be getting married next month! We are so excited to capture their big day and meet their families and friends. We’re even more excited to see what these two have in store for their wedding day. Until then, happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn
