Joseph & Hope – Indianapolis Proposal Photography

It’s not every day that I get to capture a proposal. But when I do it’s so much fun! This is the proposal story of Joseph and Hope.

Of the dozen or so proposals that I’ve photographed this one had to be the most nerve wracking! About an hour before the proposal was suppose to happen it started to downpour. I’m talking tons of rain. The plan all along was to do this downtown and it had to happen on a certain day because both sides of the family were in town. So I packed up all my equipment and headed downtown and hoped for the best. I got downtown a little early but waited in my car as long as possible as it was still raining. When I couldn’t wait any longer (I knew the couple was getting close) I got out of my car. Miraculously the rain had stopped! It was amazing. So the downtown area wasn’t very crowed because it had just been raining and the weather was perfect.

This sweet couple has been dating for 8 years and they are in the process of moving to Indy. Joseph wanted to propose at a location that was iconic to Indy to represent this next phase in their lives/relationship. I can’t think of a more iconic place to propose then the monument circle downtown.

Joseph had it all planned out… We had a meeting location and when he got to the meeting location he asked Hope’s parents (who was with them) to take a picture of the two of them in front of the monument. That’s when I started clicking away and Joseph dropped to one knee and asked the question! When Hope turned back around she saw that I was there taking pictures and both sides of her family showed up. She was surprised for sure! After the actual proposal and after Hope showed off her ring (wow it was a beautiful one!) I was able to sneak the newly engaged couple away for a few engagement pictures on the circle. It was a perfect day!

Indianapolis Proposal Photography Downtown on the Canal

I’ve had the joy of photographing this couple’s baby when he was just born. So it was even more of a pleasure to be able to capture this next big milestone in the couple’s life!

Jake (the groom-to-be) contacted me about his plan to propose downtown in Indianapolis on the canal. It was a picture perfect location for popping the big question. Jake had just had a rough day at work as he was pepper sprayed a few hours before popping the big question due to his new job on the police force. But he didn’t let that put a damper on his plans! The good news is that it was an unseasonably warm day in Indy and Samantha said YES! I hope you enjoy Jake and Samantha’s proposal pictures.

A Proposal at the IMA – Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

I’ve been able to capture a number of proposals for Indianapolis couples. This is something that will never get old! It’s such a fun and priceless moment. This couple got engaged in the 100 Acre Woods on the Indianapolis Museum of Art grounds. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple. After the proposal happened I was also able to get a few shots of the couple alone. Their excitement could  be read from a mile away on their faces! It was too much fun!

A Proposal at Brown County State Park – Charles and Cara

Once in a while, I’ll get the request from someone to capture a proposal. When this happens, I know it’s going to be a great session!

Charles contacted me and asked me to photograph his proposal at Brown County State Park. He wanted me to capture the proposal in the exact same spot where he first told his then girlfriend, Cara, that he loved her. So Charles sent me the exact GPS coordinates of where that spot was in the park and gave me the time to be there.  I found the spot and waited. Soon, the couple arrived. Charles had the perfect proposal where he got down on one knee and professed his love and commitment to Cara and the he asked her to marry him. Of course, Cara said yes!

After the proposal we went to another spot in the park and the couple shared some champagne to celebrate. The champaign glasses were made by Charles himself! The couple enjoyed the beautiful view. It was a picture perfect day!

A Proposal at the Indianapolis Zoo White River Gardens

I’ve been asked to photograph a dozen or so proposals and let me tell you it will NEVER get old.

Before the proposal happens my stomach is in knots and I’m so nervous! I can’t even imagine how the groom-to-be is feeling.

But just like all the proposals I’ve photographed this one happened perfectly.

This is the moment when the groom-to-be informs his fiance that there is a photographer.

Now let’s talk rings. This one was extraordinary!

A Real Indianapolis Proposal & Engagement Photography

With my engagement being just a few weeks ago, this session was extra special. The groom-to-be Nathan contacted me a few weeks before the proposal. He had it all planned out…Nathan and Stephanie (the bride-to-be) would go to Holcolmb Gardens on Butler’s campus (where Stephanie goes to school) for a picnic to celebrate their anniversary. Nathan told her to dress up to celebrate the anniversary, but he didn’t tell her much more.

After the picnic the two of them went on a walk around the park. Nathan had his proposal spot all picked out and that is where I was waiting near by (I didn’t have to hide because Stephanie and I had never met before). This is where he popped the question.
