Since Gabrielle and Duncan are planning a July wedding, they wanted to do their engagement photos in the winter, so we planned to do this session while they were both in Fort Wayne, Indiana from Indiana University over Christmas Break! We talked about trying to schedule this session to be in the snow, but it didn’t seem to be in the forecast for the always-unpredictable Fort Wayne weather. Lo and behold (and to my pleasant surprise) the day of our session, there was a little bit of snow falling from the sky and just enough on the ground to make the world look a little more…whimsical. BUT, it was veeerrry cold that day as well, so I called ahead and we decided to hold most of our session inside the Grand Wayne Convention Center in Downtown Fort Waynehich has a lot of windows and natural daylight (win! Natural light is my favorite kind for photographs). I’ve done a few photo shoots at the Grand Wayne center, but never because it’s been too cold to comfortably do a full session outside. I became even more grateful for such great architecture in the Downtown Fort Wayne area! As you’ll see near the end of the gallery, Gabrielle and Duncan were great sports and we did end up going outside for a few photos where I got to take advantage of the snow, buildings and streets as our backdrop!
I hope you’ll enjoy Gabrielle and Duncan’s Engagement photos as much as I enjoyed capturing them!
Duncan & Gabrielle,
Thank you for spending the afternoon with me and bringing such a relaxed and warm atmosphere to this session! Your love and playfulness with each other is sweet, and I’m so excited to capture your wedding day later this year!
