Erin and Scott's engagement session | Fort Wayne, Indiana | wedding photographers photography

Erin and Scott chose to have their engagement session in Fort Wayne even though they are living in Fishers, Indiana right now.  Their wedding ceremony will be in Decatur but their reception will be at the historic Baker Street Train Station in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana.  We spent the afternoon visiting a park, the University of Saint Francis, and a few downtown locations.  It was cold and windy, but Erin and Scott were great sports about waiting between gusts of wind to spring into action on cue.

Pamela and Rick wanted a downtown urban feel to their engagement session with a few light outdoor portraits as well.  We were able to get everything done within a one mile radius!  I love the neutral colors that they chose for their portraits too.  These images will stand the test of time as Pamela and Rick enjoy them for years to come in their home.
