Indianapolis Holliday Park Engagement // Molly & Brian


Well it's not all beautiful flowers and tall green grass. Yes, that is definitely there. But there is also muddy creeks and rain. But then you get amazing people like Molly + Brian who are willing to trudge through the mud and may or may not slip and fall right before portraits begin. In. The. Mud. Yep. This happened folks. These people are legit. We had the best time walking around Holliday Park in search of greenery and all things spring. But first we happened upon this little island in the middle of the (not so) White River.

We found this sweet little patch of greenery filled with these little yellow flowers. That I'm sure are weeds. But who cares, cause this picture is all I need to know that that little patch of weeds was beautiful in it's own right.

So on our way to Holliday Park both Molly and I saw these beautiful magnolia trees and we thought SURELY there would be just one inside the park. Ha! Nope! There were magnolia trees in the front yard of just about every house along Spring Mill Road but not a single. dang. tree. within the park's grounds. So what did I do? That's right. I walked my happy butt up to the front door of the most beautiful magnolia tree in walking distance, introduced myself and asked if we can take pictures in front of his tree. Obviously, he said yes, because these magical, amazing, happy dance of photos took place.

Before we even came to the park Molly had mentioned that she loved photos in tall grass. Luckily, Holliday Park had a wonderful little spot with some. So after a quick costume change we spent our last bit of sunlight at within these tall grasses makin' some magic happen. Seriously, with all the magic I do I should be in the Harry Potter books. (It's levi-OH-sa not levio-SAHHH) (Yes that just happened.) (Deal with it.)

In other news I love the way the sun peeks through these trees. Yep. I love that sun.
