Amanda and Justin were the easiest couple EVER to photograph. You could just feel how much they love each other.
Amanda’s older sister and I were friends, really good friends, back when we were kids… so I feel especially honored to be photographing her wedding.
When Amanda contacted me about their engagement session, she was really hooked on going to downtown Indianapolis. I knew of several great places downtown that would be a perfect fit for them. We first met at the Starbucks on the circle and started their session by the monument. The monument on the circle had the waterfalls running and it was beautiful; minus the people that were walking on it behind them (I had some Photoshop to do on that). We then moved to my FAVORITE ally in Indy, where several of my favorite shots came from (the images will all the brick and the grey/blue doorway). After the ally we drove over the White River State Park and took some shots on the canal and on the bridge that goes over the canal and runs next to the NCAA Hall of Fame (the building with the flags on the top). Just when Amanda and Justin thought we were done (we had been shooting for nearly 1.5 hours at this point), I asked if they would be interested in doing a couple of pictures in the parking garage of the Indiana State Museum, / White Rive Garden; they obliged. The Parking lot was dimly lit with some light and I really didn’t want to use my flash, or else I wouldn’t get the look I was going for. So I bumped my ISO up to 1000 and went from there! I LOVE the shots in the parking lot, if I do say so myself.
