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)!

Mid Century Art Deco Styled Shoot at the Clyde Theatre :: Fort Wayne Wedding Photography

Last spring, I got together a team of the best wedding vendors in town for a styled shoot that would shine a light on an amazing piece of Fort Wayne architectural history: the Clyde Theatre. Located on Bluffton Road, it opened in 1951 as a movie theater, and is now being renovated into a modern concert, music, and event venue. The interior of the building is massive and magnificent. It’s art deco features and large graphic wall art naturally led us to a mid century art deco themed shoot. Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot. Check out the latest feature in Fort Wayne Weddings magazine (which hits the newsstands December 23, 2016) to read more about it!
