Wedding Photographers in Indianapolis | Nautical Engagment Session | Chelsea & John

Jennifer Van Elk

Chelsea and John grew up together as friends, on the lake. Not only have they known each other their entire lives, but their families were friends before they were born. They spend their spare time on and around lakes, so it only seemed appropriate to make this shoot sentimental and add a little nautical flare to it! I had the privilege to capture their engagement session on Lake Wawasee, at Chelsea's parent's beautiful, lake house. I loved that they incorporated a vintage, wooden boat. It added a romantic vibe to it all.

I had an absolute wonderful time with them and can only imagine that their upcoming wedding celebration is going to be fabulous! We can't wait!

 

Wedding Photographers in Downtown Indianapolis | New Jersey Engagement | Shelby & Matt

Jennifer Van Elk

We traveled to New Jersey to meet the wonderful Matt & Shelby! After some crazy traffic, and almost losing our tire to a pothole, we finally arrived in this beautiful town that was just a breath of fresh air. Matt, who grew up in the area, was literally our walking tour guide. He explained the history of the town, including pointing out the very first fire department in the United States.  The eastern part of the US is just so different from the Midwest. I'm so intrigued with it's rich history and unique people! I love it!
 

Shelby & Matt met while attending Purdue. They made New Jersey their home after a job placement located them in the area, but they are having their wedding in the good ole Midwest this upcoming spring. I can't wait for their beautiful day!

Plum Creek Golf Course Wedding | Indianapolis Photographers | Rachel & Ian

Jennifer Van Elk

Rachel and Ian are married! I'm so excited to be sharing their wonderful day with everyone!

Rachel & Ian were married at the Centennial Bible Church in Westfield, IN. The bride, the mothers, and the bridesmaids enjoyed their morning getting ready at The Beauty Lounge, located in Carmel. We've captured getting ready wedding pictures here before, including when Rachel was a bridesmaid for her sister-in-law's wedding. This is definitely one of my favorite salons!

Rachel and Ian had a revealing in the Kawachinagano Japanese Garden in Carmel, IN, right off the Monon Trail. This is the park in which Ian proposed to Rachel. It was incredibly touching that that they chose to have their revealing in the same place that they became engaged. This is an incredibly romantic location for a first look. It was such an honor to witness Ian seeing his bride for the first time, as well as seeing Rachel's face light up when she saw his reaction.

After the ceremony, the new Mr. and Mrs. made their exit through bubbles, with beautifully crafted get-a-way decor. They headed to the Plum Creek Golf Course to kick off their wedding celebration. It was a packed reception, with guests who were anxious to celebrate the happy couple, and lots of delicious food catered by Sahm's.

I say this a lot, but we seriously have the best couples. Ian & Rachel were just fabulous, and they come from two wonderful families. We had such a wonderful time capturing their portraits and working with them through the planning. They have been nothing but sweethearts. It's always a little bittersweet finishing up these weddings, but we have lasting memories of their wonderful day that we will cherish for a long time!

On a side note, congratulations to Ian as the new kicker for the Purdue University football team! Good luck with your season. We'll be cheering on the Boilermakers for sure!!!
