When I first met with Kate, I was so excited when she said “I waited so long for a photographer and Anis said ‘why do you keep looking at other photographers, you know you like Courtney'” — She is what I hope all my potential brides to be like someday! She follows and keeps up on my work and then when it’s her turn, she contacts me!
Downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana has become one of my favorite places to shoot engagement sessions! The city planted the most colorful trees at Headwaters which offers an amazing view of the skyline (although I didn’t get it in this session). But then the new Promenade Park is STUNNING and offers a beautiful view of the sunset behind the historical Wells Street Bridge!
Fort Collins showered their day with the most glorious weather. We scouted out the location for the nuptials the night before and it was almost like this spot was made for weddings because it was out on this little ledge just big enough for about 25 people with a great view in the background. The sun was shining bright, my best friend Nikki had the music queued and we all gathered as they read their own vows and committed a lifetime to each other in front of friends and family. After the ceremony, we all headed out to New Belgium Brewery for post-wedding beers and enjoy the celebration of two becoming one!
Kim always had a vision for her day. Her in-laws have a large property completely surrounded by massive pines and she knew she would stand in front of friends and family to marry her best friend by her favorite trees one day. Planning an outdoor wedding always adds a little more stress to the mix but luckily the rain came a day early so her ceremony dreams could come true!
I cannot say enough good things about Mr. and Mrs. Clontz! Jaime and Chris are dream clients! This Indiana barn wedding was A BLAST! With their easy-going and fun-loving personalities, it was such a joy and truly an honor to be able to capture their wedding. They have a beautiful baby girl, Caroline, who is just so adorable (you’ll see her later, as their flower girl) and this little family deserves all the best in the world!
I think I say this after every engagement session with my couples but SERIOUSLY I have the sweetest couples! I have known Tiffany since highschool and Toan (pronounced like “John” with a ‘T’) since my college years! When I first met up with them we discussed some times we shared at Ball State University that were maybe a little muddy in our memories haha! Tiffany and Toan are just the sweetest and conversation flowed so easily like we had been great friends over years! It was so fun walking around The Villages of West Clay, where they live (while laughing and comparing it to Eagleton from Parks & Recreation), it truly is a gorgeous little village in Carmel!
