It wasn’t quite Christmas in July, but it was pretty close. Anne shares a deep love of pretty decorated glass and has a fabulous collection of vintage Christmas ornaments. I drooled in envy as I watched her pull them out of her car, asking repeatedly, where did you find these?!? When I photograph an engagement session with the styled packages, I try to find something that is unique to that couple that represents who they are. Although most “material” things don’t really “define” a person, it can tell you a lot about their personality. I can see Anne and Ryan now, decorating their first Christmas tree together as husband and wife. ;) We decided to have their session at the IMA because Anne also shares my love of flowers and it’s display of classic beauty, combined with art. I had so much fun working with them and I already know what gift I’ll be getting for them for their wedding. ;) Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session at the Indiana Museum of Art in Indianapolis.
Ryan is a pilot and Anne is a stewardess and they met doing evacuation flights out of New Orleans for Hurricane Gustav in August of 2008. ;)
