Keirsten and Andrew | Botanical Gardens | Fort Wayne, Indiana
April 22, 2018
These two, there is just so much I could say. This year has been a year full of photographing weddings of people who I know, and Keirsten and Andrew are another couple that I knew before I sat down with them to discuss their wedding. Keirsten and I actually attended high school together briefly, and Andrew and I took college classes together and actually makes my workout plans for me, which seems like such a small world. That's why when Andrew got engaged and reached out to me I was beyond excited. Shooting a wedding of a couple I know, just makes the wedding that much more special to me, and that much more exciting.
Keirsten and I had talked about Botanical Gardens for their engagement session. She wanted the green nature look, but with winter taking it's time Botanical seemed like the best option. However the day before their engagement session Andrew sent me a message saying he had a little bit of a curveball for me. He wanted to do some photos at the gym to represent their love for working out. Why would I ever say no to that?! I always recommend to my brides choosing a sports jersey or some sort of activity that their fiance loves in their engagement photos to make him feel included, and dread photos a little less. So photos in the gym were a total yes from me, and I am so glad we did them because they seriously turned out amazing! Andrew even brought Pinterest photos to show me exactly what he wanted. Loved including this groom in such a unique way!
Besides rocking their workout engagement photos, Keirsten and Andrew also totally killed the rest of their session. They totally laughed their way through their session, joked around and totally let loose which seriously created some of the cutest candid photos. Seriously these two are a dream to photograph. They also have some amazing chemistry, and were never short of ear to ear smiles. Seriously a dream. I seriously can not wait to watch these two tie the knot in October. So if anyone needs me I will be counting down the days!
