“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.” // Virginia Woolf
Back in January I participated in the Indianapolis Bride Expo bridal show. It was a fun two days of meeting amazing brides who were so excited to plan their special day. As with any bridal show I run a raffle for a complimentary engagement session! When I pulled names out of the proverbial hat, Elizabeth + Kevin were the lucky winners and I’m so glad they were! A couple weeks ago I had the very distinct pleasure of spending a Saturday with them to not only photograph and document their love but I also was able to learn more about who they are as a couple.
During our time together I learned so many things. I learned that they met through mutual friends, but ultimately on the dance floor. ;) I learned that their first date was at The Wellington Pub in Broad Ripple. That Elizabeth celebrated her birthday at Bluebeard while Kevin celebrated his at Bakersfield. I learned that while Kevin is a little more picky when it comes to food, Elizabeth’s foodie heart has opened him up to new things. I learned that they love trying new restaurants and that apparently The Eagle and Ball and Biscuit on Mass Ave are DEFINITELY worth a try. I learned she was a school teacher and he a tennis coach. They love to travel, drink wine, and spend nights outside at home with their adorable pup Flynn. This is why I love what I do. Before walking into their engagement session I knew nothing about them but two names and a wedding date. Now I know so much more and I feel like I made friends with some incredible people. And I think our tour d’Indianapolis engagement session was better because of it.
