Layered Looks

There are so many options when it comes to layers! Dress it up or dress it down, either way you are going to look put together. This style is better for the cooler months, however with thinner layers you can definitely make it work for the summer. In addition, layers give you more variety in your gallery as you remove and add layers throughout your session.

Spring Engagement Photos

Spring is such a great time for engagement photos! The newness of life and subtle warmth makes for a comfortable and beautiful session. Hannah and Jared especially loved the blossoms on the trees that lined the Concordia Seminary Campus. The delicate white and pink flowers gave their images a heavenly look, while adding variety to their gallery.

In addition to the beautiful spring weather and lovely campus, Hannah and Jared had great outfits picked for their spring engagement photos. The couple opted for an outfit change, and both looks were perfect for the location! Keeping the color palette neutral and simple, gave a minimalistic look while maintaining the focus of the images on Hannah and Jared. Their gallery is also cohesive even though they have variety in their outfits.

We are so excited for Hannah and Jared’s wedding this fall! And if you too are planning a Fort Wayne Wedding, reach out!

Dreamy Beach Engagement Session | Cori + Chels

Dreamy Beach Engagement Session | Cori + Chels

Being Fort Wayne wedding photographers we don’t get to see much of the beach, so this session was an absolute dream. Throughout this beach engagement session, these two were so happy. Cori and Chels are some of the cutest people, and being able to work with them was a blast. Something about capturing love on a beach, doesn’t get much better than that! Between family time with Cori and Chels’ family, sunsets, and champagne, this session was incredible.

We decided to keep things as natural and unposed as possible to let the location and their love be the stars. Getting to wander around the beach, watch Cori and Chels walk through the water was an absolute photographer’s dream. Throughout the session we were able to keep these two laughing, and just enjoying the beautiful beach environment while celebrating their upcoming marriage.

Snowy Winter Fort Wayne Engagement // Sarah + Mitchell

Snowy Winter Fort Wayne Engagement // Sarah + Mitchell

Being Fort Wayne wedding photographers, we’ve had to learn to adapt to the weather changes throughout the year. Including snowy winters, which may intimidate some people – we love it! Throughout the winter season we love being able to showcase the beauty that can be found even in the coldest of temperatures. Sarah and Mitchell’s winter Fort Wayne Engagement session was a dream winter session. The snow played as the perfect setting for showcasing their love story.

Mitchell’s Family Farm – Winter Fort Wayne Engagement Session

When these two approached us about their engagement session we were so excited to be able to plan a winter session with them. Mitchell’s family owns a family farm, and we headed there for their snowy winter Fort Wayne engagement session. Throughout their session these two were filled with so much love and fun. Mitchell showed us some pretty perfect spots for their session and we even incorporated some of the farm’s architecture as a way to honor the family history there. It was a dream!

Later we went back to their home on the farm for some cozy hot chocolate pictures on the porch. Having a variety of spots for their session was just what we love to work with. It creates a whole new vibe for their shoot, while still maintaining the overall feel of the day. It was a perfect time to take a break from being in the winter snow. These two were such troopers and handled the cold so well, but you could tell they were relieved when it was time to warm up!
After some hot chocolate Sarah and Mitchell had an epic snowball fight, such a great way to end the day. We absolutely loved working with Sarah and Mitchell. The snowball fight was a great way to showcase their fun loving personalities. If you’re planning your engagement session and worried about the winter weather – don’t be! Although it was a little chilly, the pictures still turned out great.

Downtown Cincinnati Sunset Engagement // Sara + Brandon

Downtown Cincinnati Sunset Engagement // Sara + Brandon

As Fort Wayne wedding photographers, we get to work with some of the coolest couples from their engagements to their big day. Sara and Brandon’s downtown Cincinnati sunset engagement session was nothing short of incredible. We love being able to bring our couple’s love stories to life, and we did just that in downtown. These two are just an amazing couple, and if all couples could be like them, we would be happy photographers!

First we explored Alms Park, for some elegant and classic outdoor engagement photos. Sara and Brandon dressed up for their Cincinnati sunset engagement session and it was the perfect touch to bring together the whole session. Throughout their outdoor session we used architecture found all over the park which made for some show stopping moments. Just as we were about to leave for downtown, the sun began to set. Later, Sara and Brandon held one another and enjoyed the sunset while we captured some pretty epic moments.

After their Cincinnati sunset engagement photos, Sara and Brandon changed into a more casual outfit for the downtown portion of their session. Later, Sara and Brandon showed us around town, as we took in the sights. As we explored downtown, the skyline was breathtaking, and a great way to showcase their love of Cincinnati. Nevertheless Sara and Brandon’s session was filled with laughter and appreciation for the beautiful city of Cincinnati. Later this year, these two are getting married in the summer in Fort Wayne and we can’t wait for their big day!
