Moody date night under the stars // Making magic in Indiana

June 25, 2019

They say the honeymoon phase of marriage only lasts a few months, but I don’t think these two will ever outgrow that over-the-moon in love feeling. To celebrate their first wedding anniversary, Mallory and Zach planned a romantic date night under the stars with lots of laughs and a moody vibe, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. 

I first met Mallory when I took her business headshots awhile back, so I was thrilled when she reached out about taking photos of her and Zach for their anniversary. We met in a rural area of McCordsville, Indiana just northeast of downtown Indianapolis. As the sun sank lower in the sky, we wandered around the hilly countryside getting shots of the usual couple poses, but these guys kept me on my toes with lots of spontaneous laughter and intimate moments. In every single picture, you can see just how happy they make one another. I couldn’t help but smile the entire evening. 

By the time the sun had set and the stars were out, we were amazed to see that the moon was shining in the most perfect crescent shape. That made for some gorgeous nighttime shots, and probably some of my favorite silhouette photos ever taken. We ended the evening the best way possible – dancing around with sparklers. Thank you to Mallory and Zach for being amazing to work with and for planning the most wonderful date night photo session. Congratulations on your one year wedding anniversary, and many more to come!
