Indiana is so much more than cornfields, I promise. You can absolutely elope in Indiana and have an epic, beautiful location. We actually have a lot more waterfalls than you would expect! Maybe you want to elope or share an intimate wedding with close friends and family, but don’t want to go too far from home. These locations below can give you the adventurous experience while staying within the state and not hurting your budget.
The red rocks of the Saguaro Lake mountains glowed like embers in the January sun. We watched mountain goats effortlessly leap from cliff to cliff as we made our way up into the mountains overlooking the calm waters. Sergio and Mariah balanced each other perfectly, him being her steady rock for her carefree spirit. He helped her step carefully over the rocks and carried her when her dress was close to getting caught on cacti, with the sweetest smile on his face…

The wind blew gently through the golden flowers on top of Max Patch. Alexis and Javier met us along the winding trails and we made our way to the top. We were met with the most glorious golden sunset over the mountainscape. Alexis and Javier were so easy together, with nothing but laughing smiles and soft touches and kisses.
A light fog had settled over the waters of Lake Wawasee and it was drizzling ever so slightly, but that wouldn’t deter the excitement of Sara and Luke. They had no idea that fateful day they met working at a tap room together that five plus years later they would be getting married during a pandemic. COVID may have changed their plans, but they couldn’t not be married to one another any longer, so they kept their ceremony on their original date, and boy was it beautiful.

Storm clouds hesitantly hovered in the sky above St. Vincent De Paul, but Judy and Dylan’s excitement wasn’t hindered. They had waited so long for this day, and the threat of rain wasn’t going to hold them back. In the quiet moments before the ceremony, happy tears were shed and tissues passed around for all. And as Judy walked down the aisle to her husband, there wasn’t a dry eye in sight (Myself included).
Let’s be honest, being in front of a camera for an hour is daunting. I myself feel horrendously awkward when I get my photo taken! Your engagement session doesn’t have to be this painful experience, it can actually be a total blast!

This wedding was extra special, as Jake is my best friend’s older brother and I’ve known and loved their sweet family for years! This special intimate backyard wedding wasn’t their original plan, but thanks to COVID, they had to change plans on a dime. They waited five years for this day, and they weren’t going to let anything stop them from joining their love and lives together.
I met Spencer and Emily at the Fort Wayne Bridal Spectacular this past January and I was so excited to discover we all went to Pine Hills Church! This couple has seriously gone through so so much adversity, from car accidents to their rehearsal venue double booking on them, to their honeymoon getting canceled (thanks COVID) yet through it all they focused their hearts on serving each other and Jesus.

We met at Waterfront Park, for this dreamy Charleston engagement session. Despite Waterfront Park being wildly popular for tourists, it was surprisingly empty, which was perfect for our session planned. We met by the pineapple fountain, and Britney and Nick immediately sparked laughter as we started shooting.
When visiting Charleston, I knew I wanted to do this engagement session at Folly Beach, but still be able to avoid the crowds. So we settled on sunrise, and at 5am when the sky was still a deep indigo we set out for the beach. The sand was cool to the touch and the waves tumbled over each other in a dance towards the shore.
