Indianapolis Butler University Holcomb Gardens Couples & Family Session // Rush-Harris Family

"Where there is love, there is life." // Mahatma Ghandi

I had so much fun spending time and photographing Lindsey & Katie for their engagement/couples/family session a few weeks ago at Holcomb Gardens on the Butler University Campus! When Lindsey & Katie approached me to photograph their wedding reception they saw that all of my packages included an engagement session. When they told me they had already eloped in 2017 they weren't sure if they needed an "engagement session" per se because technically they were no longer engaged! But I explained to them the importance of a portrait session prior to the wedding day so we can get to know each other and meet up. They opted to do a family/couples session and I'm so glad they did! It was so great getting to know their little family and hanging out with them before the wedding. And despite the Indiana weather's BEST efforts we were still able to squeeze something in prior to the reception with a beautiful sunset and temperatures that somewhat resembled Spring time! 

Lindsey & Katie met at St. Francis Hospital about 4 years ago. Lindsey was working as a Physician's Assistant in Cardiac Surgery and Katie as Social Worker. Katie's Step-Father was going in for heart surgery and Lindsey assisted on his surgery... she even held his heart in her hands! While it's pretty hard to go backwards from that they started as friends. Soon enough friends grew to more and now here we are! 

Despite the fact that both Katie & Lindsey thought that getting engaged around the holidays was pretty cheesy Katie decided to switch out was was to be a fashion ring for Lindsey for Christmas to an engagement ring, Katie said she thinks it's the only time she was able to keep a secret from Lindsey! Needless to say Lindsey was shocked, obviously she said "yes", and the rest is history!

So guys, gals, and all of my non-binary pals (thanks Thomas Sanders for that one!) let me introduce to you Lindsey, Katie, Addi, & Elle... just about the cutest little family to grace my lenses.

Butler University + Eagle Creek Fall Engagement Session // Rachel & Matt

“We love because he loved us first.” // 1 John 4:19

When your clients are as adorable as these two and you have the beautiful fall leaves of Butler University’s campus you’re bound to have an amazing engagement session. And that’s exactly what happened when Rachel, Matt, + I spent an evening together last fall documenting their love. We walked all around Butler’s campus where they both were not only students but they were heavily involved in. Rachel an RA and double major in Communication Sciences and Disorders and Spanish was quite popular on the campus. Matt however, was also a double major in Bio Mechanical Engineering and Chemistry was also pretty popular that day. It seemed like everywhere we turned there was someone that the two of them knew that was waving to them and saying “hello.” It was actually pretty cool.

It’s no surprise the two of them have tons of friends and people that know them. They’re quite possibly some of the nicest people you would ever meet. So sweet and so friendly. I don’t know if I’ve ever met a nicer couple! I’m so excited to photograph their wedding day coming up NEXT WEEK! (I know, I’m behind on blogging their engagement session.)

Also, can we take a moment to talk about these fall leaves and colors?
