Indiana Engagement Photographer | Chesterton, IN | Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve | Engagement Session | Jessica & Chuck

So let me tell you about this session. This engagement session took me to nice little town in Chesterton Indiana, just outside of Valparaiso, IN. If you don't know where Valpo is located, it's about an hour southeast of the Windy City Chicago. This was one of the best sessions I've had to date.  Jess and Chuck were amazing, fun loving and so laid back. It was an honor to photograph their engagement session and I can't wait to document their wedding!

Jess and Chuck decided to have their session at the Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve in Chesterton Indiana.  All I can say is that they pick an absolute gem of a location.  As you walk around, you are literally one with nature.  The beauty of this place is breathtaking.  Everything was so right about this location...except for the mosquitos.  They were basically trying to carry us away during the session; however, it made for a very fun and interesting time and some hilarious pics.

I can't say enough about Jess and Chuck but I have to keep this short. I will tell you this...you can see the love they have for each other, the respect they have for each other and how they simply adore one another through out the images.  It's amazing to see the big fun they have in their little moments throughout this e-session. Jess really wanted me to capture "them" and not the posey posey type of things.  They allowed me to put them in situations and then I just let them be Jess and Chuck. It was amazing to see the interaction. So enough telling you about it, let the images show you.

From the funny faces, to fighting mosquitos and through the intimate times throughout your session, you guys were AMAZING and I truly want to THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of something so special.  Until next time...

...Stay Happy and Keep Smiling!!

My Little Homie

This blog post is something a little different for me. I decided to briefly talk about one of my dear friends...Heather.  She is what most people who do not know her would possibly call awkward or weird. But I call her beautiful, special and my little homie. You will never ever meet a person like this in your life.  Heather gives you that little jolt of life that every one needs. She has what she calls "charisma" (which is one of her many many many favorite ways to describe herself) but it's what I call inner beauty. She adds joy, randomness, beauty and tons and tons of humor into your life. She has brighten my day plenty of times and she may not even know it. Heather is a very special person (and not the "special" that she hates) and this world needs more people like her...but I don't know if we could handle all that CHARISMA!!! 

Below are some images from a day that we were playing around with the camera. Maybe this will shed some light on what I see in her!
