Dani & Judd at Hyde Brother’s Bookstore :: Fort Wayne Engagement Photography

When Dani and Judd first met, they bonded over their love of “nerdy things” (Dani’s term, not mine). But after spending the afternoon with them, it was clear that they clicked on a deeper level. Dani’s giggly personality meshed perfectly with Judd’s goofy comments and sarcastic tone. We spent some time exploring the one and only Hyde Brother’s Booksellers, then wandered around downtown for some fun shots.

I’m looking forward to September, when I’ll be shooting their wedding on a private farm in Huntington County.

Liz & Andy at Empyrean :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Liz and Andy had a beautiful wedding at one of my favorite downtown venues, Empyrean. Surrounded by their family, friends, and two sons, the couple exchanged vows, then partied the night away as the sun set through the floor-to-ceiling windows of the venue.
