Sharon and Michael met while they were both living in Chicago. Now, however, Sharon is working in Chicago, Michael is doing a PhD program in Connecticut, and the wedding is going to be in Indianapolis! Needless to say, working out all of our schedules and planning a date for their engagement session was a challenge!! We found a date that would work for everyone, and hoped for good weather and a beautiful outdoor engagement session. As luck would have it, the day of the session came and it was pouring down rain! I had been scrambling for some good indoor options and suggested that we maybe try Indianapolis’ Central Library. It ended up being absolutely perfect!
It turns out that Sharon and Michael had actually looked into having their wedding at the library! They especially loved the old section (and so did I!!), with all of its warmth and character. Unfortunately, it hadn’t worked to have their ceremony there, but how perfect that we were able to use the space for their engagement photos!! The other thing that made it great is that they are having a book theme for their wedding. Could we have had a more perfect way to tie the engagement session and the wedding together?? I don’t think so!!
For this set of photos, we were in a section that was filled with books about dragons and things of that nature. I quickly scanned the aisles for a book for Sharon and Michael to hold in a few photos. I was looking for an older book with a simple cover and this was one of the first ones I found. Can you see the title? And They Lived Happily Ever After. Love it!
Sharon and Michael are just so sweet together. I had so much fun getting to know them and seeing them interact.
The rain let up quite a bit at the end of our session and we snapped a couple of shots outside. These two could definitely pass for models, don’t you think?
Who needs an umbrella when you’ve got love, right?
Sharon and Michael, I am so, so, so excited for your wedding! I know that it will be just as perfect as the two of you are together!!
