Engagement Session

We started together for Danielle & Doug’s engagement shoot at an old abandoned factory in Gary, Indiana. They knew they wanted something grungy and unique for their portraits that would also allow them to have a paint war. I thought the combination of dilapidated buildings and outdoor foliage would be a great combination of backdrops for us to get what we were after. Take a look through them all and let us know what you think in the comments below.

This was the aftermath. We were all pretty dirty at the end of the day, but I have to say – it was worth it. We had so much fun!

Wedding Day

The day of their wedding, I met the girls at Terra Salon & Day Spa in Saint John, Indiana while the guys were cooking out at home. We then headed to their hotel in Valparaiso, Indiana before we finally took off for final touches at Aberdeen Manor. We had one hell of a celebration together too! Here are the highlights of Danielle and Doug’s big day…

I can’t say enough good things about these two and their friends & families. Their northwest Indiana wedding was full of so much love and emotion (I’m looking your way, Doug) as well as all around great dancing and celebrating throughout the night. What a blast!
