John & Jan's Engagement Session..

John & Jan contacted us to photograph their Engagement Session along with their November 12th Wedding, and of course, we were thrilled! 
Considering they're both in the field of air planes and helicopters, we figured the Grissom Air Force Base Museum in Peru, Indiana would be perfect for their shoot.
We spent most of our time driving and talking, but when we got there, we knew it was well worth the 2 hour drive! haha! What a fun day!
I was so excited to work with these two from our first emails together..
John telling me how he met Jan, and giving me the background of their story together really sounded like a Nicholas Sparks book! I felt like a silly girl reading a love story..
But that's what their relationship is.
The perfect love story.. The kind with the happily ever after.

Vintage Romance

People who know us, know that we love the color pink, sunsets, romance, perfume ads, vintage things, and femininity. We wanted to incorporate all of these things into this shoot to really give people a feel for our style of photography. So, in this design process, I asked myself "what would I want my Wedding to look like?!" OF COURSE, I have tons of things already collected for my own Wedding one day (I'm a girl, what do you expect?!), and we began brainstorming!
So Mom and I brought out a lot of our favorite glass and jewelery pieces that we've collected over time, as well as a lot of my Grandma's things, including the letters she received from my Grandpa while he was in War.This shoot really means a lot to me not only because it's everything that we love, but also because my Grandma went to be with Jesus a week and a half before this shoot took place.. I am so thrilled that we were able to use some of the things that she loved.
Of course, we had a lot of help putting everything together! We collaborated with 5 of North West Indiana's top Wedding vendors! I abosultely adore each one of them, and I can't wait to work with them again in the future!! If you're interested in any of them for your Wedding (they're the BEST!), there's a complete vendor list on the bottom of the page with the links to their businesses! :)

Okay, enough talk. Here are the photos.. :)
