Goodness gracious I love these two! And, I love the IMA on chilly Spring evenings when rain is looming. We had the whole place to ourselves that night, which was so peaceful. We had a great time chatting and getting to know each other while we created some beautiful engagement images for Betsy & Elliot. They’re getting married next April and we’re looking forward to their wedding day with Boldly Chic Events! Anytime you have a super fun couple paired with Christine planning + coordinating the day, you know it’s going to be great! And now onto the photos – prepare yourself for a bunch of cuteness.

We are always thrilled to be a part of wedding days of people we know. Brittany went to school with both of us and Brittany’s mom and my mom grew up together, which made the day extra special. We saw so many people from our home town – always so fun – and my mom was even a guest! 🙂 It was also my last wedding before this baby arrives. I cannot believe we’re already 2 weeks away from the due date and have already completed all of our Spring weddings. Time sure does fly! Congratulations to you both, Brittany & Sam! We’re so happy for you and are beyond thankful to have worked with such a great vendor team, wonderful wedding party + family, and such a sweet couple. Cheers!

It seemed as though every time we scheduled Lauren & Nick’s engagement session, the forecast worked against us. We had originally planned for a sunset session downtown, but after a few tries + horrible storms, we decided to embrace the overcast/rainy day we had and roll with a morning session at a couple of unique locations and I’m SO glad we did. We took a few photos with their precious little pup, Coco, they enjoyed a glass of champagne at Louie’s Wine Dive, and then we stoped at a sweet greenhouse in Carmel. It was the perfect session despite not having that sunset they were originally aiming for! I love using unique locations and getting to shake things up a bit. Not to mention they were wonderful and just enjoying each other’s company and loving on each other while I photographed them – my favorite! 🙂 Lauren & Nick, thank you so much for rolling with it and allowing me to capture your sweet, sweet love.
Happy Monday! We’re so excited to share this beautiful Spring wedding with you today! The simple color palette paired with the sweetest couple and wonderful group of vendors, this day was one for the books! It was another day that called for crazy amounts of rain, but the radar cleared and we had perfect weather for their ceremony at St. Matthew’s and The Willows reception. We stopped at the Indianapolis Art Center for photos and while most of the grounds were flooded, we found a few gorgeous spots that had the most perfect light! Just wait until you see their portraits and you’ll know what I mean. Anne & Josh live in Broad Ripple and wanted to share the area with their wedding guests – what a perfect Spring day to do so! Of course, Autumn of Isibeal Studio made magic happen with the exquisite florals (Anne even cried when they arrived!). We still can’t get over the magic she creates at each wedding. She did the florals for our wedding two years ago and since then we’ve worked with her numerous times. Every single bride is blown away every single time. Her work never gets old and no two weddings she does are the same. We’ve listed all the vendors at the bottom of the blog post, as always, but I just wanted to give them all a little extra shout-out for how much effort everyone put into this day. Thank you to such a wonderful group of Indianapolis wedding vendors for working together to create such a special day for Anne & Josh. We love you all and are thankful to work with you often. And we’ll stop rambling now and get to the good stuff! Congratulations, Josh and Anne! Huge hugs to you both!

Thank you, Anya, for your support & assistance! We’re thankful to have a loving group of people willing to help us throughout this pregnancy!
Lauren and Brian are two of the sweetest, most calm, laid-back people you could ever meet. They’re just lovely to be around and are so easy to talk to. Celebrating their marriage with them was such a joy and we are so glad we were able to be a part of their day. Leading up to Saturday, the forecast called for 100% chance of rain basically all day. It was by far the worst forecast we’ve seen as far as wedding days go. It’s rained on plenty of wedding days since we’ve been photographers (and even our own day), but never has it rained literally all day. So, we came up with a solid backup plan. But, just an hour of so before their first look, it cleared up. The sun started shining and the ground was drying. It was a dream! We were able to carry on with our as-scheduled outdoor portraits and it turned out perfectly!
After a trip to the Indiana Statehouse for photos, we settled in at D’Amore (one of our favorite venues!) for the ceremony and reception. With Boldy Chic Events planning the day + Lauren and her family’s beautiful vision, D’Amore looked stunning and it was everything Lauren wanted. Exactly how it should be! We were thrilled to work with Lauren & Brian, meet their families, and create the first heirlooms of their marriage – their wedding photographs. Thanks for having us, Lauren & Brian!
