Rachel and Brian’s engagement session feels like quintessential fall. We shot in Mounds State Park in Anderson, Indiana and oh my gosh did we luck out on fall color. Walking along hills, trails, and even into the riverbed, this was such a beautiful day to shoot.
Always dating long distance, Rachel and Brian are beyond excited to get married and finally live in the same city. Their wedding in June can’t come fast enough. Not only will it be fun to work with them again, but also with their vendor team! Among the list includes their wedding venue, The Lodge at River Valley Farm in Yorktown and one of my favorite florists, Dandelions Flowers and Gifts from Muncie. I can’t wait to see how beautiful their wedding will be!
During our session, it was nice to be able to break things up between two areas at Mounds. It gave us so much variety. First, I loved playing with the light coming through the leaves. But then I think my favorite part was Rachel and Brian’s willingness to play around in the water. – You guys were troopers sticking your feet in the cold water, running around, and splashing (maybe a little more than expected haha.) This was so much fun doing something more carefree.
After sending any gallery, I always check back to see my couple’s responses. This one was all I could hope for.
“Oh. My. Goodness!! I just wanted to let you know I absolutely LOVE them!
Brian and I were talking on the way home from the session about how glad we were that we picked you! You made the session laid back and relaxed, and you definitely calmed my nerves! I love that I can have complete trust in your poses and photography and not have to take the extra time to pull pictures off Pinterest- you make them our own 🙂 It makes me feel so much better knowing that there will be things that don’t go as planned during our wedding, but we know we’ll love the pictures! I can’t tell you how much I have appreciated your guidance and recommendations through this process.
Can’t wait to have you there June 13th!! Thank you so much!”
Ah! See? I’m so glad I could make this a fun experience and that I was able to calm your nerves! I feel lucky to find couples that are a good match and when everyone has fun. I can’t wait for your wedding either!
