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

Family | The Stilabowers

I absolutely LOVE this little family and am always so excited to get to run around with Charlie for an hour or so whenever we get together :) Nina & Jacob were one of my first repeat families, and it is always so fun to see just how BIG Charlie is getting and catch up along the way! Charlie is such a little man now, but don’t let his big-boy looks fool you — he’s a momma’s boy through & through :)
