They met online and had their first date along Mass Ave in downtown Indianapolis. Over the course of their first several dates at local breweries, Annie and Ted discovered they both shared an affinity for live music and refreshing libations! Together they love to jog and take walks in their historic neighborhood, to cook and try new foods, and to go on brewery and winery tours, to take in art at museums, and so much more. In short, they love sharing in new experiences with each other.
He loves her sense of humor. His silly dance moves in the kitchen make her smile. And as you'll see from their images below, they are adorably happy together!
One Saturday morning, Annie asked Ted for a cup of coffee. He happily brought it to her, accompanied by a ring and a proposal! What better way to start the day!
We began their engagement session on a sun-drenched fall day at their cozy home with their sweet pup, Onyx. One of their favorite places to hang out when they are at home is on their front porch. After they shared some wine and sweet snuggles in their kitchen, we ventured downtown Indianapolis for more portraits. Settle in for some (ok, several, many!) favorites from our afternoon!
Don't you love Annie's beautiful engagement ring? Good work, Ted!!!
Oh, and how adorable are these two...a favorite!
Fall color. Amazing light. Significant locations. Above all, what shined the most was their joy!
These two made my job such a breeze with their easy smiles and laid-back spirit.
And then we found a lovely, secluded garden, and it seemed it was there just for the two of them.
And it was magical.
Annie, you are gorgeous!!! You are going to be such a stunning bride!
The last of the evening light was incredible, and I'm so glad I asked them for a bit more time, because it was totally worth it! So many favorites from this series! Ahhh!!!
Glowy and romantic portraits? Yes, please!!!
Annie and Ted, it was such a delight to photograph you both!
Thank you for sharing your time with me, and for welcoming me into your home and into your lives! I am beyond excited for your wedding day in August!!!
