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.

Stephanie & Dalen at Shoaff Park & IPFW :: Fort Wayne Engagement Photography

Stephanie and Dalen wanted their engagement session to reflect their past, present, and future as a couple. We started at Shoaff Park, where the two of them used to take long walks together when they first started dating. After that, we shot at IPFW, where the duo had recently received their diplomas. We wrapped up the evening with some fun sunset shots downtown Fort Wayne.
