“How about coffee, drinks, dinner and a movie for as long as we both shall live?” - You’ve Got Mail
This year I kicked off my engagement session season early with this super fun engagement session in Downtown Zionsville. Living in Indiana typically my couples choose to have their engagement sessions in either the Spring or Fall. A few trickle into the Summer but usually it’s too hot and I’m too busy with weddings to do engagement sessions. But this year Kelsey & Colin kicked off my first session of the year by embracing the cold and having a January engagement session in the heart of the little town of Zionsville. And if you’ve never been, you should seriously go. It’s the cutest little town. I sometimes feel like I’m a collector of cute little towns. Living in Pendleton, I love the small town historic nature of the streets here and I love meeting couples who want to show me their small town. Or at least one that’s important to them. Although this isn’t my first time shooting in Zionsville, Kelsey & Colin did not disappoint.
Kelsey and Colin met at a Christmas Party at a cabin in 2015. They were able to put their IU and Purdue differences aside and focus on the things they do have in common; like movies, laughing, breweries, sushi, and their mutual careers in education. Less than a year after they met Colin planned the best proposal… ever. (No like, literally ever. Colin… fist bump bro. #ProposalGoals.) He planned it all at the cabin in Thorntown where they first met. Lined the dock with candles where he proposed to her with one heckuva ring! He planned it so that all of their friends joined them after the proposal for an engagement party. Definitely an evening worth celebrating.
Their mutual love of breweries was the bud of inspiration for their engagement session. Being winter in Indian we had to find a way to work with the cold without freezing off our bits! So we lined up two indoor locations they love in Downtown Zionsville, Rush on Main and Noble Order Brewery. In between we captured some photos on Zionsville’s brick sidewalks that line all of the historic the buildings, Lincoln Park, and a few in Bites Dessert Bar. It was definitely a blast and I can’t say I have ever laughed more during an engagement session, ever.
