Amy and I have always wanted to do an inspiration shoot of some kind. We always look at things a little differently when it comes to photography and to have a wedding shoot where we can really go wild with our ideas has been a dream of ours. Also, with the hundreds of weddings we have shot, we would love to give brides some inspiration for their upcoming wedding. We've seen so much cool stuff and worked with so many amazing vendors over the years, we wanted to get them all together in one big shoot and see what happens. Well...what happened was truly amazing. I'm not sure I've seen Amy this stressed since our wedding! But it was the good kind of stress! The amount of moving parts in a shoot like this was staggering, but we can't say enough amazing things about the vendors that put their time and effort into the art they create. All the vendors listed were incredible. Every single one went out of their way to make this shoot happen. A huge shout out has to go to Black Iris Estate for allowing us to utilize their amazing grounds and to Violet Vintage for providing all the couches and props. Ok...on to the details of the shoot.

This shoot was themed, "Snow White and the Huntsman". We gathered different details to give it a little twist and to also showcase some really cool ideas that brides could use for their wedding. Our models were the amazing Dassie and Austin. We shot their wedding few years ago and when we were thinking up the couple to ask, we both thought of them instantly. They have such good chemistry and jumped in head first for the shoot. Seeing it all come together was an amazing experience and getting to know the vendors and seeing their art was even better. We really hope you love this and take some inspiration from it. We have links to all the vendors websites at the top so if you are in the market please check them out first. Ok, I've written way to much! On to the pictures(and there are a lot of pictures)!

Sam + John Wedding Day by Amy Grissom

Sam and John were a dream to work with! From the first time we met we knew that the wedding day was going to be something to look forward to. And we love shooting at Kennedy Farms! Their details and style fit perfectly with the Kennedy Farms. We loved hanging out with them on their special day and really couldn't wait to share these pictures with you!

Jarrod + Angela E-Session by Amy Grissom

We love going down to Bloomington and taking pictures. And when Jarrod threw out the idea of hitting up their favorite pizza place before...I got down there as fast as I could! Quick side note, I(Brian) could eat pizza everyday of my life and not get tired of it. Walking into Mother Bear's Pizza, I knew it was going to be a great night. The pizza was amazing and hanging out before the shoot was just fantastic. We had to get a few shots in Mother Bear's, and then we headed off to the second location. The road to the lake was twisty, and a half lane to small, and did I say twisty? But it was definitely worth it when we got there. What a night to be by the water. Can't wait for their wedding!


Lindsey + Ryan E-Session by Amy Grissom

Vail, CO: Lindsey and Ryan live in Chicago...whenever we get a chance to shoot outside of Indy, we are always stoked. And when you have amazing clients on the other side of the camera, it just makes it that much better. But as we were talking about shooting their engagement, Colorado came up as a really special place to them. They both grew up there and have so many memories around the town of Vail. So we all threw caution to the wind and scheduled their engagement shoot for Vail, Colorado! Ryan picked us up from the airport and after getting stuck in "Ski Traffic" (first time for everything) we walked around Vail, and then headed out to a frozen lake to finish the shoot. 

If you are a previous client or know anything about how we shoot, you know I'll sometimes ask you to stand places that can take some walking to or stepping over stuff. Lindsey and Ryan were amazing all day. It was freezing cold, but they made the day so fun for Amy and I. It's always interesting meeting someone for the first time, out of state, a few hours before their shoot. But after 5 mins, I felt like we had been friends for years. Here's just a few of our favorites of the day.

Molly + Jeff E-Session by Amy Grissom

Mass Ave, IN: The first time we met Molly and Jeff, we knew that we would have so much fun getting to know them and taking pictures of their love together. We had to reschedule there engagement shoot due to weather (#indyphotogproblems) but I have to say, the day we picked couldn't have turned out better. They are self professed foodies and love the Mass Ave food scene. So we headed downtown on an unusually warm and windy day and walked around Mass Ave. Engagement sessions are some of my favorite types of shoots. It's laid back, we talk more than we take pictures, and it's a time to just have fun. We talked quite a bit, we took a few pictures too, and here they are!

Rachel + Philip Wedding Day by Amy Grissom

Indianapolis, IN: From our first meeting at Indy Hostel, we knew that Rachel and Philip were going to be an amazing fit with us! Not only have we never shot at Indy Hostel, but they included parts of their wedding that we haven't seen owls...they literally had owls. Which is awesome. The whole day had perfect weather, amazing food, a campfire and wonderful people to spend it with.
