Engaged | Kyle + Casey

(Happy 4th of July!!!!!! I had planned to get this post out last evening, but then the hubs took me out on a date (woot woot!) — so here’s to a bright & early holiday morning post :) )

I had SUCH a great time photographing Kyle and Casey this past weekend in downtown Indy!!! I knew that we would have a blast once I learned they were willing to bust out a sunrise session (6:30am!!!) — and that was just the start of our crazy adventures! I’ve always said my favorite part about photography is the PEOPLE, and that is especially true with these two! They way they look at each other just can’t help but make you smile; the easy-going nature they share automatically puts you at ease, and their love and laughter made our short time together fly by!!! I can’t wait for their fall wedding!!

With that, meet Kyle and Casey!! 2014.6.28 Kyle + Casey Engaged Facebook-0001_STOMP.jpg

2014.6.28 Kyle + Casey Engaged Facebook-0228_STOMP.jpgWe stopped in the Marriot for a quick outfit change, and as we were crossing the street to the Indiana State Museum I saw this random patch of weeds/wild flowers/grass by the parking garage. I think Kyle thought I was kidding when I asked if they wanted to sit in it! Ha!!!!! Thank goodness for that adventurous spirit I mentioned earlier…because these turned out to be some of my favorites :P

Monday Lovin’: Happy Memorial Day!!!!

Happy Memorial Day to you on this BEAUTIFUL Monday morning! I am so thankful for all of the men and women who serve this country: those who give up time with their loved ones, those who train in all conditions to be prepared for even the worst, those who leave everything they know behind. Today, I especially want to remember those who have given up their lives.

Today and every day, I LOVE this country, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Because of the amazing weather & Memorial Day festivities, this Monday Lovin’ will be pretty quick — if you are fans of my facebook page, hopefully you saw that the sneaky proposal session on Saturday was a SUCCESS! Can’t wait to show you all of the photos this week — it was a BEAUTIFUL moment and one I will always treasure :) For now, I will leave you with another quick sneak peek appropriate for the holiday… :) :)
