If rain on your wedding day is good luck then Jessica and Ryan are off to a great start! Jessica's mom is a wedding photographer so having good photos was an important part of their day and even when the things don't go as planned, at the end of end of the day you have your wedding pictures and your memories. Jessica and Ryan were married on the canal with the Indianapolis skyline as their backdrop. They danced the night away surrounded by family and friends followed by a sparkler exit and a romantic Gondola ride down the canal. Congratulations you two!
Kim and Grant's snowy engagement shoot was a long time coming! We had scheduled a snow shoot right after a snow storm only to arrive and find out there was next to no snow on the canal! This time we waited for the mother of all storms and were not disappointed! Grant's brother arrived to help hold the props and managed to arrive coatless so he spent most of the time under the blanket they brought as a prop!
I took Melissa's senior photos way back when so it was fun to be able to photograph this next big life change! She brought some coffee cups to show their love of hanging out over a cup of coffee as well as some fun props that showcased her creativity and personality. My couples don't always bring props but when they want to its always fun and I try and get additional pictures beyond the ones they had thought of.
Getting to the Canal when we did made for some great pictures. The trees were budding and the light was just even enough to create an amazing engagement shoot. I love that time of day right before sunset leading in to twilight. Kristen and Eric naturally put themselves at ease and we had a good time just walking around taking pictures and looking for the light.
