Chelsie & Zach at Goeglein’s Homestead :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Chelsie and Zach’s wedding was a new twist on an old location. I’ve shot at Homestead a few times before, but never had the pleasure of shooting a wedding upstairs. The brick detail was gorgeous, the weather was perfect, the bride was stunning, and the whole day was filled with tons of emotion (the good kind)!

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.
