When a couple comes to you and asks if you’d be interested in doing a campfire engagement shoot complete with s’mores and a homemade tent, the answer is yes, absolutely yes! I didn’t have to think twice when Loretta and Jeff described their perfect outdoor engagement session, and I am over the moon excited with how their engagement photos turned out!
We ventured south of Indianapolis for this shoot, near my home in Southport, Indiana. A gorgeous local park at dusk made the perfect backdrop for their session, and we quickly found a secluded spot to set up their DIY tent, cozy blankets, and other props that were meaningful to their relationship including favorite books, coffee mugs, and a vintage carafe full of steaming hot coffee. I just love when couples put a personal touch on their engagement photos, it helps bring out those intimate details to help tell their love story.
As darkness fell, we lit the campfire which cast the most amazing glow around us. Loretta and Jeff were completely themselves for these photos, laughing and dancing, and truly enjoying the moment together. We sat down to roast marshmallows and make s’mores because what’s a campfire without s’mores? I really thought the s’more photos would be my favorite, but they’re a close second to the up close and intimate shots of the couple snuggled up together with the fire burning behind them. Such an amazing evening with an awesome couple, thank you for choosing me as your engagement photographer Loretta and Jeff!
