S & A ENGAGEMENT - Plymouth Indiana Wedding Photographer

This couple is AWESOME! I love when people aren’t afraid to step outside the box and while they wanted the traditional engagement photos, they also wanted to represent their silly, outgoing and God loving relationship. As we talked and shared and realized how much we had in common and what a small world it really is, I knew that this couple was a PERFECT fit for BBP. And I absolutely cannot wait to document their big day this fall.

A & S ENGAGEMENT - Plymouth Indiana Wedding Photographer

I loved this couple this minute I met them! From their epic heigh difference to their easy demeanors, they are just a blast to be around. It’s obvious that their relationship is based on a fun and laughter, especially when they shared their story of how they started dating which included her shoving him entirely too hard off of a cooler at a bonfire! And who doesn’t love a good ring story? Her ring has a diamond in it that is a family heirloom of his; what a great way to start off forever than to connect with the past?!

Can NOT wait for this wedding this fall!

KAYLA + TYLER'S ENGAGEMENT - Niles, Michigan Wedding Photographer

Kayla and Tyler have been one of my longest booked clients so far! I met her at a bridal show back in 2017 and have been anxiously awaiting their wedding since then. With the weather finally starting to turn in our favor (after having to reschedule about 51 times due to cold/wind/rain/hail/insert any crazy midwest weather), we were finally able to meet up to get their engagement photos done! And while it started off a little crazy and cold, it’s safe to say these photos were well worth it. And seriously, what a fun and sweet couple. I genuinely can not wait to be a part of their wedding day this fall!

ALYSSA AND JOSEPH - Plymouth, Indiana Wedding and Engagement Photographer

Alyssa and Joseph were such a fun, laid back couple! When Alyssa first reached out to me inquiring about wedding photography, I thought I recognized the name. After a little chatting, I realized that way back when, she had been a student of mine when I was still teaching (although not for very long as I left for maternity leave that same year). I always have a soft spot for LV alum who I get to work with!

As soon as we met on this gorgeous fall night, it was obvious these two had been together forever. They have that easy comfort that many couples don’t find until they’re well into their marriage. Hearing about their wedding plans and plans for after marriage was such a fun and refreshing conversation as we took advantage of the gorgeous scenery.

I can’t wait to work with them more on their wedding day this fall!

This session is special for SO many reasons!

While it just so happened to also end up falling on what was probably the prettiest “golden hour” evening of the season, this engagement session held a special spot in my heart long before it started. You see, this gorgeous bride-to-be was also my daughter’s nanny as an infant! When I was still teaching, H spent several days a week watching my baby girl and for me, that’s no small thing. For me to trust someone with my child, I’ve got to really love you haha. So when H texted me and asked if I would be up for handling their engagement pictures, I couldn’t agree fast enough.

I ended up having so much fun getting to know her hilarious fiance as we toured the beautiful property. They were full of laughs and totally up for anything. In fact, A even taught me something: use the “drunk walk” prompt immediately after the “spin her around in circles” prompt! (Haha).

I could not offer more well-wishes for this couple and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.

E & J ENGAGEMENT SESSION - Indiana Wedding and Engagement Photographer

Joined through a mutual love of science and laughter, these two are a match made in heaven. E & J are the perfect balance for each other and there’s no shortage of excitement for their 2019 fall (almost winter) wedding. Seeing and hearing their joy as they shared the details for the big day, it was obvious that this is going to be a fun wedding to document!

And to prelude their big day, E & J opted for an engagement session to kick things off. While we wandered around a gorgeous state park, their comfort with each other was obvious. The setting was beautiful and diverse and even though the initial goal had been a golden hour session, the midwest weather decided to give us some mild temps with steal gray clouds…and it was gorgeous! Sometimes, I’m so grateful for unanswered weather prayers because they often end up in the most stunning photo opportunities.

Thank you, E & J, for spending the evening with me and letting me capture the first part of your ultimate love story.

M & B ENGAGEMENT - Indiana Wedding and Engagement Photographer

This super sweet couple will be my first wedding after maternity leave and I couldn’t have chosen a better fit to dive back into 2019! Getting to know them at their engagement session was a total blast and between having totally epic light, a gorgeous dress on the bride-to-be and a fiance who was clearly crazy about his future wife, it was a perfect equation for some gorgeous photos.

As we talked about how they met and what their wedding would be like, we took full advantage of the changing leaves, golden fields and amazing sunset. I wasn’t especially fond of the snake that crossed our path when we headed to a different location and I may have shouted a few choice words and hoped it wouldn’t send me into early labor (can you tell I love snakes?) but they took it in stride and laughed at my panic. But it was totally worth it because just look at these gorgeous engagement photos they were able to get!

M & B, I genuinely can’t wait for your March wedding at Bread and Chocolate and I hope you love these e-session photos as much as I do!
