Natalie & Tom! Indianapolis, Indiana Engagement Session

May 24, 2016

“I like that time is marked by each sunrise and sunset whether or not you actually see it.” -Catherine OpieNT-FAV-015_WEB

So Natalie and Tom were AWESOME and met up with me SUPER early for some gorgeous morning session images!  I generally offer either morning session or evening session, and you get to choose which one we do.  Most couples choose evening.  Which is 100% understandable, considering it’s not JUST waking up and heading out the door.  For engagement sessions, you’ve got to get your hair put together, and your make up on, and that takes some time!

But hurray for crazy early mornings!  We actually did two back to back, because the initial session, there was only a tiny window off opportunity to shoot before some crazy dark clouds moved in.

And you guys, I have to say, there is just SOMETHING about early morning sessions.  I think partially it’s that beautiful morning sun, but then also, it’s the wandering around in the city when there aren’t many others out and about.

In any case, I’m a fan.

We started downtown, to get some skyline images, and I LOVE the ones we got!  Then we wandered around the downtown Indianapolis canal area.  Since the day of our shoot was SUPER cold, we were all happy to postpone the second part of the shoot to the next day.

Part two took place in Southern Broad Ripple [SoBro, if you will].  And of course I’m biased because I live in this area of Indy, but it is just so full of gorgeous little nooks of color and light, and awesome-ness.

Natalie and Tom are both pretty awesome.  They recently moved back to Indy from some time in NYC [I love that city].  They have a dog.  They are having a fall wedding [how amazing will it be with Natalie’s gorgeous red hair!!!!]  And they got engaged in Italy [Florence, if I remember right].  How super romantic, right?!?!?  We talked about their travels and how Tom picked Natalie’s favorite place in Italy with this wonderful view to propose.  When they got there though, there was some hard core college-esque partying going on [maybe not so romantic].  So he ended up stopping on the walk back down to the city.

You guys, proposal stories are my FAVORITE!

Somebody hire me to photograph your proposal in Italy some day, kay?  Kay.

So excited about your fall wedding Natalie and Tom!  Loved hanging out with you guys!

    What!?! How incredible is this session! Love that light in the early morning images. And Natalie is so pretty. Dying over all the background and textures in the second shoot. No way to pick a favorite. Beautiful.
