Meet the beautiful and talented Emerald and Nick, future husband and wife duo! Emerald and Nick are getting married on Clear Lake at Nick’s family property this weekend! While their wedding won’t be up on the blog for a little while, their engagement photos are!
For time sake, we did 2 engagement sessions! The first of two was last fall. We took them at Nick’s parent’s property. We got to explore trails and find hidden treasures with these two. It was a blast! The colors on the trees were turning and the leaves were beginning to fall. Seriously, it was beautiful! They brought their dogs with them on the first shoot and they were so cute and wild! One was a pitbull (he wore a sweater and looked so handsome) and the other dog was a German shepherd who had a smile on his face the whole time! We loved working with them and their pups!
Our second session with Nick and Emerald was at Nick’s lake property. They wanted some fun, playful photos, so of course, we got em! We even got in the water for some of the shots. We were loving it too – It was so hot out!
These two creatives were so fun to work with! We are so looking forward to spending this Saturday taking photos of them. We can’t wait to see what awesome things they pull out for their wedding! Check back on the blog in a few weeks to hear all about their big day and all the cool things that happened!

Olivia & Austin – Clear Lake
We LOVE lake engagement sessions. There is something so cozy about them! Olivia and Austin’s lake engagement session was super special – Her family had just moved to this cottage on Clear Lake in Fremont Indiana, so we got to explore the lake with them and find fun and unique locations just for them. During our session, we jumped on the boat with Olivia, Austin, and her father, who just happens to be Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry’s brother, how cool is that!. We rode to an island at middle of lake for some sunset pictures where it seemed the most difficult thing was avoiding goose poop! While on the boat, we made sure to include Austin’s second love – Coors Light – in some of the photos… We love having fun during our shoots – the proof is in the pudding!
We had a really difficult time working around the weather with Olivia and Austin’s engagement photos. Even for their session at Clear Lake, we had to reschedule three times because of the rainy Indiana weather. Eventually, we there was a clear night, but it was still gloomy so we wanted to schedule some photos for a sunny day too! When we scheduled the additional session, even it got rained out once! After weeks of working around rain and overcast weather, we finally had a sunny evening and took these two out for some more photos! Downtown Fort Wayne was the perfect scenery for these guys.
Olivia and Austin’s wedding is this fall. They are HUGE Notre Dame Fans. They planned the wedding around Notre Dame’s football schedule on the only bi-week of their season. The wedding will be at the beautiful Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne. We can’t wait for this wedding – we’re just waiting to see how these two incorporate their favorites teams (and favorites beers) in to their big day day… We imagine something special for sure!
Meet Tosha & Jim! This fun loving couple flew all the way across the pond from good old London England to meet up with us to do their epic Lake Wawasee engagement pictures. We were honored and humbled that they choose us to photograph them, and they were so much fun to hang out with!
When we showed up and the first thing Tosha said was “we are going to jump into the lake!” I knew immediately it was going to be a great time. I got to photograph with our amazing associate photographer Michele Snyder! We will be doing a whole blog post about the amazing Michele this fall, stay tuned!

Meet Jane & Jim! This is everything you want in an engagement session, Love, Laughter…and the LAKE! When these guys invited us up to the lake to photograph their engagement photos at Big Long Lake in Northeast Indiana, we were like heck yeah! We love the lake! We were then able to meet Jim’s parent and snap some super cute photos of them as well.
We are so pumped to photograph these cuties wedding later this summer in downtown Indianapolis! So we won’t share too much because you will have to wait and see those pictures. Oh and did I mention that our daughter Charlie took one of these photos!
