Happy Tuesday yall! I hope everyone is getting back into the swing of things and the transition from the holidays hasn’t been too hard! I feel like I have a million things to do even after checking off a lot of my to-do list yesterday.
Today I thought I would show you some of our engagement pictures that we took about a year ago as I continue to recap the best year of my life. We took our pictures at Jon’s parents house, which ended up being the location of our wedding ceremony too.
After we got engaged, I quickly started looking for photographers. It is amazing how far in advance photographers get booked up so I knew I needed to get on it. I contacted a bunch (like way too many) and met a few of them in person to see their packages, some images, and see if we clicked. The last thing you want on your special day is someone awkward or just not your style taking your pictures.
After a long time of back and forth with many photographers, we decided on Jennifer Driscoll of Jennifer Driscoll Photography in Indianapolis, IN. We could not be more happy with our decision. Jennifer is kind, considerate, warm and funny. She did a great job of making two camera shy people look pretty darn good ;). She made us feel comfortable and took all our suggestions and wishes into consideration throughout the whole process.
We picked a package that contained an engagement session, which was nice so we could see if we liked Jennifer during this process and we could get a feel for how she would handle our wedding day including many large family photos. Shortly after meeting her, we knew she would do an amazing job. And she did.
I also loved that Jennifer provided (within our package) a digital copy of all of our photos from our engagement photo session to our wedding (thousands of photos) and a photo album while many photographers make you pay for each picture and don’t give you an option to print them yourself.
Yes, Riley had to make his appearance… he was the ring bearer after all (pictures to come).
My in-laws have the most beautiful house and backyard with a meadow and gardens. (My mother-in-law is a master gardener… yep, I picked a good one ;)).
We had a great time just wandering around and taking pictures in all the beautiful locations at their house.
And the fun continues…
Off we go.
Engagement pictures can be a fun or miserable experience… that’s why it is so important to choose a photographer that understands your wishes and values your input. If you are in the Indianapolis area (or outside of it… Jennifer does travel), I highly recommend Jennifer if you are looking for a wonderful wedding photographer. She is amazing!
