jen + dave // carmel indiana engagement photographer

Meet Jen and Dave. A super sweet couple that couldn't be more perfect for one another. I met Jen in 2011 when she was a bridesmaid and I was a photographer. You can only imagine my excitement when she contacted me about shooting her wedding.  My response as I read her email: "Uh yes!! Put me in coach!" 

Nothing makes me happier than photographing a couple in love. If you can't tell from these laughter filled photos, this couple is super in love. My cup is filled to the brim with happiness. Shoutout to Jen and Dave for being sports and braving this chilly, sun drenched morning shoot. You two are the bee's knees! I'll see you next month as you say "I do!" :D

How they met according to her: We actually met on a dating app.  He sent me a message saying "I bet you're a cool chick" which was way better then the usual introductory "hey" messages.  I giggled as I typed in "I bet you're right".  We kept messaging each other and by the end of the day I knew he was something special.

How they met according to him: I messaged her on the Hot or Not app.

Proposal story: Jen convinced Dave to take her up to the top of a hill with a scenic view coined the "top of the world".  We said she wanted to film a Vine up there at sunset and once she set the camera to record, she proposed instead.  Though he had to check and make sure it was real and not part of the Vine, he said yes! 

His idea of a date night: T-bone for me and ribeye for her and then usually a random activity like miniature golf or arcades or a movie.

Her idea of a date night: Dinner at a steakhouse and then a movie or a visit to a comedy club.
