I'm a photographer providing honest & authentic images that tell the stories of your connection
Hi, I'm Emily

Stephanie & Jared were in town from St. Louis the weekend of their engagement session.  They had visited family in southern Indiana and then headed up to Indy before going back to St. Louis.  They wanted to do some photos in a canoe, which I was more than thrilled about because it’s one of the things on my photography dreams list.  We started off on the canoe (definitely should have done the canoe photos at the end, but they were closing shortly after we arrived) and captured some lovely images.
Immediately following the 2 images above, they fell in the water.  I have never felt so awful.  I was beside myself.  They took it on, grabbed their pup, got out of the water, and were as happy as clams! (Well…at least they seemed to b be!)

After the fall, Stehanie and Jared were up for drying off, changing clothes, and continuing on, which was AWESOME.  Talk about troopers!

They brought berries they had picked that morning at Jared’s grandma’s patch and played a game of checkers.

The light was magnificent! 

Stephanie & Jared, the world’s biggest THANK YOU goes to you for this session.  I had such an amazing time with you!
