Kate & Lee! Indianapolis, Indiana Engagement Session

June 7, 2016

I LOVE engagement sessions.  I mean, I do love weddings, don’t get me wrong, but heading out for an engagement session, I’ll obviously be taking photos, but I’ll also be getting to know my couples.  What they like, how they met, what their favorite past times are.  And you guys, I LIKE people.  Like, genuinely love getting to know new people.  Photographing them with their favorite person and getting to just hang out and wander with them is AWESOME.

So, here’s Kate and Lee!  We started their session at Two Deep Brewing, which is where they got engaged [yay].  We got there and I scoped out where they should sit and drink their beers, and when I told them, “How about this couch?”, they were all, “That’s the couch we got engaged on!”  Points for Maike!

They both went to IUPUI for law school [where they met], and since books are a pretty big thing for them, we decided to incorporate the IUPUI library into their shoot too.

If you live in Indiana, you know that our weather has been hit or miss the past month.  Lot’s of lighting and thunder storms breezing through Indianapolis, and I’ve heard a lot of photographers have had to reschedule shoots.  Luckily for me, M.Rinaye [knock on wood] hasn’t needed to re-schedule any shoots yet.  When we shot Kate and Lee’s engagement session, the sky’s were initially gorgeous, but towards the last bit of their session, this monstrous cloud rolled in, bringing some lighting and thunder with it.

Our plan was to take some last evening shots on the rooftop of their apartment building as the sun was setting, with the gorgeous Indianapolis skyline in the background.  When we got up there things were dark and windy, so we embraced the windblown look, and the city lit up behind them.

Kate and Lee, so excited to shoot your Indianapolis wedding this year!  Loved hanging out with you for your engagement session!

Cheers!
