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. We got to pop some champagne and enjoy a beach sunset during this incredibly breathtaking beach engagement session. It was epic!

Although we are based in Fort Wayne and do majority of our shoots and weddings here, we are always down to travel! We love being able to work with couples wherever their love story takes them, so, when planning your big day, don’t hesitate to ask your team to travel! While our team consists of Corynn and myself, sometimes, you may see some of our other team members like our little girl at this shoot. Corynn and I love being able to take our kids to new spots and let them experience something new, while mom and dad get to do what we love!

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!

Cheers!

Caitlain & Donald // Detroit Engagement

Caitlain & Donald // Detroit Engagement

Introducing Caitlain & Donald! Their Detroit engagement session was a blast. We loved capturing their love in so many cool places around Detroit! Read along to see more of their adorable session…

We started their engagement session out at an extremely pretty island in Detroit! And, to kick things off, Caitlain & Donald brought their two beautiful dogs! We always have so much fun capturing photos of our couples and their pets. Then, we moved on to taking photos of the two lovebirds. We went to many spots around the island; it was so cool! Caitlain & Donald stood with the city skyline behind them, and we captured amazing photos of the two!

After taking photos on the island, we traveled to the top floor of a parking garage in the middle of Detroit. This parking garage was about 20 stories high, and the views were totally worth it! We captured amazing skyline photos of our couple atop the garage. While we were up there, we found some stunning murals! The colors made Caitlain & Donald really pop! And, we have to mention how stellar our couple was dressed. A few outfit changes and coordination made Caitlain & Donald shine! Our time ended in an epic alleyway with spectacular string lights. The lights are so romantic and adorable in photos!

Caitlain & Donald’s Detroit engagement session was unforgettable. We are so excited for these two to get married in Fort Wayne next year!

 

Cheers,

Makayla & Zach // Grand Haven Engagement

Makayla & Zach // Grand Haven Engagement

Introducing Makayla & Zach! These two make such an awesome couple and we had such a great time capturing their Grand Haven engagement session. There was so much love and happiness in the air! We are so excited to share more of their photos with you.

We captured a variety of pictures around Grand Haven and the Lake Michigan dunes. We started in a breathtaking wooded area with some cool steps that made for a wonderful photo op! The photos continued around the dunes and all along the shore. Each location we took photos at was more romantic than the last! This spot was perfect for Makayla & Zach. It was a gorgeous day, and we were so thankful the weather cooperated! It’d been raining all day, but the sun popped out right before we started. The temperature wasn’t too hot, and the sky was beautiful.

Our fun-filled day was complete with some outfit changes to switch things up! We always love when our couples have great outfits that complement each other. One fun thing about this photoshoot was that we also got our workout in! We did a lot of walking and hiking to get those perfect views for our couple… so worth it! The beauty of Lake Michigan looked stunning in the background of our stylish couple.

Makayla & Zach’s Grand Haven engagement session was so romantic and joyful. We can’t wait to see these two this October for their wedding in Fremont! Until then… happy planning!

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

MeMe & David // Cincinnati Engagement

MeMe & David // Cincinnati Engagement

Meet MeMe & David! Their Cincinnati engagement session was wonderful. We love our hometown, but it’s always a pleasure when we get an opportunity to take photos of our couples in different destinations! The love between MeMe & David is so genuine and sweet, and they were a joy to photograph. We’re so excited to share more of their session…

We met these two in downtown Cincinnati and started our session there. Cincinnati has so many cute, quaint photo spots! The buildings were so gorgeous and the trees were bright green and flowers were in bloom. We then traveled to one of their favorite breweries, where we of course had to get some beer. We snapped some photos of them and their drinks around the facility, and even got to photograph them in the basement of the brewery!

After, we went over to Ault Park, which holds a special place in their hearts… David proposed here! We had some fun and recreated their proposal for a few photos. The park was gorgeous, so we walked around and took many more photos of our couple! The sun was shining and the sky was beautiful, making for a perfect photo day.

MeMe & David’s Cincinnati engagement was a treat, and we feel so honored to work with them. We can’t wait for their wedding this fall! Until then, happy planning!

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
