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,
– 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.

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

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

 

Brittany & Matt // Metea Park Engagement

Brittany & Matt // Metea Park Engagement

Meet Brittany and Matt! We had such a fun time getting to know these two. We ever broke out the drone at some point to get a cool over head shot! Read on for details about this sweet Metea Park engagement session and see our favorite photos!

We met up with Brittany and Matt at the beautiful Metea Park in Fort Wayne. They really wanted to capture different parts of their relationship that they bonded over, so they brought along some of their favorite books and a chess board! While we photographed them, they played a quick game of chess on a beautiful June day. They love reading and playing chess together, so why not capture them? Our favorite detail photo from the session was the “ring shot” on one of the chess pieces – Check it out below!

These two were so easy going, wore several different outfits, and even got in the water for some photos! There was a beautiful sunset too – We really could not have asked for a better evening for photos! Originally, we thought we’d have to cancel because there were thunderstorms in the forecast, but it turned into a perfect June day.

Brittany and Matt will be getting married this October, so get ready for another blog of this two! We hope you enjoyed reading about this sweet Metea Park engagement and seeing their photos below. Until then, happy planning!

Cheers,
-Dustin & Corynn

Cassie & Matt // Freimann Square Engagement Session

Cassie & Matt // Freimann Square Engagement Session

Meet Cassie and Matt! We are beyond happy to work with such an awesome couple. We walked all over Freimann Square and Headwaters Park in downtown and learned all all about their story during their engagement session. Read on for details and some of our favorite photos!

When Cassie and Matt decided to move their wedding date due to covid-19, their wedding photographer was already booked on the date they wanted. Rather than trying to change the date again, they decided to call around to see if other photographers were available. So when they called us, not only were we available on a date so close, but we also knew that we’d be able to squeeze in an awesome engagement session too. We love when situations come up when everyone involved is happy and surprised!

We met up with these guys at the beautiful Freimann Square – The fountains were on and were so pretty! From there, we walked over to the Fort Wayne Civic Theatre to take photos by the local contemporary art work. Cassie wore a black dress with matching shoes while Matt wore a simple white button down shirt and corresponding black dress pants. These two looked so sharp! We finished their engagement session at the awesome Headwaters Park when it started to sprinkle. By the end of the session, we even saw a rainbow (pictures below).

Cassie and Matt will bee getting married this July (about a month away) at the amazing Punch Films. It is the perfect location for couples looking for more of that industrial look on their wedding day. We loved being able to capture Cassie and Matt’s engagement session – We are even more happy that we get to capture their wedding day! Happy planning.

Cheers,
– Dustin & Corynn

Amanda & Grant // Downtown Spring Engagement

Amanda & Grant // Downtown Spring Engagement

Meet Amanda and Grant! We had a blast with these two at their downtown spring engagement session. Amanda had been following our work for awhile, so we’re so glad they she contacted us and that we get to capture their engagement and wedding day! Read on for details of this session and see some of our favorite photos.

We met up with Amanda and Grant at headwaters park. The main path was lined with white flowering trees. The ground was a little wet from rain earlier in the afternoon, so it was covered with some of those little white flowers too. Needless to say, we had the most perfect spring weather and atmosphere for these engagement photos! After this, we headed across the street to take photos by some beautiful blooming red bud trees. The bright purple flowers against Amanda’s emerald green dress was the perfect contrast.

The sun popped out during the session, so we walked over by some gardens where the sun was shining for some magical spring pictures (pictured below!!). On our way back to the cars to change locations, we walked by the white flowering trees again – Some of the flowers were falling, so it looked kind of like snow! We went by two of our other favorite spots downtown, then called it a day!

We loved working with Amanda and Grant. This was the first of two engagement sessions that we’re doing with them. Based off how awesome their first session went, we are so pumped for the next one! Expect more photos of these two sometime this summer! And get ready for their wedding this November at the amazing Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum (super awesome car museum in Auburn Indiana). We can’t wait! Thanks for reading all of this and for viewing our favorite photos of this downtown spring engagement session. Happy planning you two!

Cheers,
Dustin & Corynn
