Fort Wayne Wedding Photographer Rose Courts Photography Best of Wedding Photos 2019

My favorites from Rose Courts Weddings. From the diamond-studded heels to the sparkler exit! I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to looking back on this year. It’s been full of so many beautiful days I got to share with beautiful people and THEE LOVELIEST Rose Courts couples! I mean, it can’t get much better than that, right?? (But a lot of photographers I follow say it always does!) It has been a dream come true to shoot these beautiful weddings this year. It was so fun to look back through all my work from 2019.

Since I don’t usually post my portrait sessions, I figured I should at least show my favorites from 2019!

When I walked into the house to see the bride and start shooting this Union 12 wedding, I walked into the most peaceful bridal suite ever. Jordian’s sweet sister was finishing up the bridal hair, her bridesmaids were getting ready themselves and there was no music. Just a soft, quiet room full of girls getting ready! The atmosphere was joyful and calm.

Classic, Elegant, Timeless — I had a vision — black and white with greenery. I saw a venue with so much character that it needed no decorations. I saw white everything — white chairs, white linens, white roses and only greenery on the tables. I dreamed of a timeless wedding — black suits, black bridesmaids dresses and me in a classic, sophisticated ivory gown.

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!

Headwaters Park Engagement Pictures and Promenade Park Engagement Photos Sunset Downtown Engagement Session Rose Courts Photography

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!
