Martha & Dan // Salomon Farm Engagement

Martha & Dan // Salomon Farm Engagement

Meet Martha and Dan! We met up with these two at our of favorite locations in Northwest Fort Wayne.. Read on to learn more about this sweet Salomon Farm engagement session and see our favorite photos!

Martha and Dan got engaged around thanksgiving this year! Rather than waiting the typical year or so to get married, these two planned their wedding in a month! They are tying the knot on New Year’s day 2021. They figured since family will already be in town, why not throw a wedding too and save everyone from having to travel twice?

These two hiked 3 hours to Fort Wayne to meet up with us at Salomon farms. When they arrived, they were nothing but smiles and laughs! There is nothing we love more then photographing two happy people that are willing to laugh at Dustin’s dad jokes.

Throughout their session, these two showed their goofy sides too! Lucky for us, it was a beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon in the mild of Indiana winter. The sunshine added so much magic to the photos! These two change into a few different outfits along the way and we photographed them at the many, many locations Salomon Farm has to offer. These two were a blast to photograph and work with. Sessions like these make us extra excited for weddings!

We loved photographing Martha and Dan at their beautiful Salomon Farm engagement session. We are super excited to see what they have planned at their Swan Lake Resort wedding in the new year! Just a few days away now! Happy planning and we’ll see you two really soon.

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Natalie & Josh // Cleveland Ohio Engagement

Natalie & Josh // Cleveland Ohio Engagement

Meet Natalie & Josh! We met up with these two Buckeye fans in Cleveland Ohio for their super sweet engagement session. We loved getting to photograph these two and we can’t wait to have them in front of our cameras next year at their wedding. Read on for more details from their session and see all of their photos!

We started off by the beautiful lake for photos along the shoreline. Lakewood Park was so beautiful and had so many locations to photograph with! There were tree lined paths by the water and a new addition to the park called the “solstice steps”, which are essentially really awesome large stairs over looking the water of lake Erie. After taking some photos on the water front, we headed into the park to capture the last of the fall colors for the season! It was sunny out so everything glowed so warmly.

It was pretty windy during their session. It was a chilly fall day near the lake, so the winds were strong, but we made it work! We found locations that made for some magic photos! Of course, it wouldn’t be a Cleveland engagement session with taking a photo with the “Cleveland” sign with the city skyline in the background! It was awesome. Near the end of their session, these two Ohio State fans changed into some Buckeye jerseys, then into some comfy Buckeye clothes! We love when we get to photograph our couples with things or places that mean so much to them. Being fans of Ohio State University is something these two share, so we just we had to photograph this!

We loved photographing Natalie and Josh in their home town! We can’t wait to see what they have planned for their wedding next year – We have a feeling that it’s gonna be pretty awesome. Happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Victoria & Nathan // Hotel Carmichael Engagement

Victoria & Nathan // Hotel Carmichael Engagement

Meet Victoria and Nathan! These two met us in the beautiful city of Carmel Indiana. If you’ve never been there, make a trip. It is one of Indiana’s most beautiful cities – lots of restaurants, shopping, and art! Read along to learn more about this sweet Hotel Carmichael engagement session and see our favorite photos!

Victoria and Nathan really wanted some formal, classy engagement photos! We are ALL for that. We love when our couples want things outside the box, and we loved what these two chose. We started at the beautiful Hotel Carmichael in Carmel, Indiana. It’s a boutique hotel with so much charm and character. There were endless possibilities for photos there! Victoria wore a mermaid style pink lace dress while Nathan wore a tux! It was so classy and seriously awesome! Because it was so windy on the day of their engagement session, we made sure to do some photos inside of the hotel, as well as the outside to capture some of the gorgeous fall colors in the area.

One location and outfit change later, we headed over to the Cake Bake Shop (the newest location) and were stunned by the gorgeous winter decor outside! The shop was all decorated for winter and the holidays! There were snow covered trees and Christmas lights hung everywhere. Not only did we capture fall colors in Victoria and Nathan’s engagement session, but snowy winter photos too!

In front of the hotel, there was a big wall that framed the sky and the Carmel city skyline perfectly. It was a pretty big wall and we weren’t sure if Victoria and Nathan would be up for climbing, but we pitched the idea to them and they loved it! Because these two are professional cheerleaders, they had no problem scaling the wall AND posing like champs! We love when couples are comfortable enough with us to climb walls and do crazy things for a good photo!

We loved photographing this sweet and romantic Hotel Carmichael engagement session! Victoria and Nathan were awesome to work with and we know they are going to plan one awesome wedding next July. Can’t wait to capture your guys’ big day! Until then, happy planning…

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Erin & Nathan // Pigeon Forge Tennessee Wedding

Erin & Nathan // Pigeon Forge Tennessee Wedding

Meet Erin & Nathan! These two got married in Tennessee up in the great Smokey Mountains – Yes, it was an absolute dream. It was beyond worth the drive from Fort Wayne to photograph these two’s Pigeon Forge Tennessee wedding. Read on to learn more about Erin and Nathan and see our favorite wedding photos…

When we got the call from Erin to capture her and Nathan’s wedding, we were stoked! Fun fact, we captured both Nathan’s sister’s wedding and Nathan’s brother’s wedding (CLICK ME). So when we got the call to photograph Erin and Nathan’s wedding, we were so happy! Now all three Pritchard sibling weddings have been photographed by us. It just feels.. complete! Which is yet another reason we loved this wedding. It was so great seeing the Pritchard family again and meet Erin’s family too.

Erin and Nathan were originally going to have a destination wedding, but, as you may have guessed, COVID changed plans. Erin and Nathan decided to get married a little closer to home, but also wanted gorgeous scenery. The Smokey Mountains are just that! On the morning of the wedding, everyone got ready at Parkside Resorts, a stunning mountain cabin resort. (We loved them so much that we even booked one for our family vacation next year!) We’ll let the pictures do the talking for how gorgeous they are…

The wedding ceremony and reception took place at Mountain Mist Farms, a mountain top farm venue with views of the Great Smokey Mountains. Just steps below the barn, there was Erin and Nathan got married right as the sun began to set over the mountains – It was quite literally picture perfect! After the ceremony, we took family photos with the remainder of the sunlight, then took some portraits of the newly weds. The mountains for so dreamy to photograph in and so different from the cornfields we’re used to in Indiana.

The reception was awesome! Twinkly white lights hung from the ceiling, delicious foods were served, and yes, there were some hilarious toasts given. The night was filled with love, laughter, and you guessed it, dancing! Instead of serving traditional wedding cake, the sweet treat at the end of the night were pies.

Capturing Erin and Nathan’s wedding was so sweet. Having worked with this family so much, the whole day was just easy going and fun. We could not have asked for better weather or better people to photograph. Thank you guys for choosing us to capture your special day in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. We wish you two nothing but love and happiness with your new lives as newly weds. Best of luck to the both of you!!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Wow. Where do we begin? First of all, Hannah and Rod were a dream to work with. They were so funny and easy going. They were up for anything we wanted to try and made everything work so nicely. Seriously, we can’t talk highly enough about these two. Chemistry, love, and easy going attitudes are how to make magic during an engagement session, and Hannah and Rod had all of that and more.

Although it was a bit of a drive to Louisville, we could not have asked for a prettier city to photograph in and explore. Hannah and Rod brought us to some beautiful spots, including a stunning park full of fall color. We also could not have asked for better weather. It was a sunny day with wispy clouds and a stunning sunset at the end of it. At the end of the session, we headed to the riverwalk area for some epic photos with the water, the bridge, and the sunset! You can see some photos of Hannah and Rod with the beautiful sunset below!

Hannah and Rod will be getting married in Fort Wayne next year at The Charles. We seriously can’t wait to see these two again and see what magic they’ll create on their wedding day.
