Meredith & Jeremy! South Bend, Indiana Engagement Session

August 2, 2016

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.” -Sylvia Plath, The Bell JarMJ-ENG-FAV023_WEB

I met up with Meredith and Jeremy for their South Bend engagement session and a beautifully cloudy Sunday morning. The night before had been stormy off and on, so I had prepared a list of indoor locations we could shoot at in case our Sunday morning engagement session was full of rain/heavy clouds/thunderstorms.

One of those options, was meeting up at their place and starting images there instead of a typical public location.  And you guys, I am SOOO glad we did.  Not only did I get some beautiful, comfy, cozy, romantic awesome images…. I also got to meet Puddles… the cat :).

Meredith told me when I got there that her mom had asked if it would be weird to ask me to their apartment to get some images with Puddles, so when we made the rain plans, it was PERFECT.  See the Puddles portraits below.

Meredith and Jeremy are nature lovers, so we incorporated as much nature into their session as we could.  Another one of their things, is Bananagrams.  Have you guys played this game?  I haven’t, yet… but after they explained how to play, I warned Ronald [my husband] we needed to go ahead and buy it.  I’m a big fan of scrabble, so I feel like Bananagrams is right up my ally.  Meredith and Jeremy take Bananagrams with them whenever their wandering, and then take a photo afterwards.  I love it when couples have their unique ‘things’.  Especially when they sort of just happen.  Which I’m guessing is what happened with the Bananagrams game.

Meredith and Jeremy met at Purdue, and are getting married there in just a couple short months!  And while wedding planning and whatnot seems like a lot right now, Meredith, I assure you, you’ll get to the wedding day and it will feel like it all went crazy fast.

I loved hanging out with these two wandering around South Bend!  So excited to meet your friends/party with them and your family on your wedding day!

Cheers!
