Katie & Mark: Engagement

So, once again, I get THE CUTEST COUPLES! And you don't, YEAH! But it's okay, I'll share.

This is Katie and Mark, and I love them. They are so laid back, and they were referred to me by my friend Matt. I figure that anyone who is willing to hire a friend of Matt's is also pretty brave and adventurous (also a tiny bit insane?), so they have that going for them!

I love this picture, but also, look at how blue Katie's eyes are, even blurred out in the background. That's insane! And I swear, I didn't do anything to them to make them bluer. They just look like that. Bitchin! (Can I say bitchin on this blog? I think I can, but if anyone is like super offended, I suppose I can refrain in the future.)

I'm not usually that into red brick for backgrounds, but I was LOVIN' it in this shot. It just turned out so ... RED! Also, look at Katie--that is the definition of "smiling with your eyes", which is important for good pictures!

A little cooler picture, kind of different than the others from this session, but I liked it and thought it fit the sticker door. These guys were such great models--see how they resist my ridiculous jokes and maintain SeriousFace?

This was all their idea. I hope they bring the sunglasses to their wedding, because they look so awesome here. And because I almost stole them multiple times, and maybe next time I'll get away with it.

I really think that this session is some of my favorite of my more outdoorsy/naturey shots. And yes, naturey is totally a word. Don't worry about it.

Aaaaaaahhhh! SO CUTE!

And finally, my favorite. I LOVE this. Love love love. And since no blog post would be complete without story hour, let me just share this one. So we were at ... let's just say, a place that displays art and yet is not a museum and is located in Broad Ripple. I spot this AMAZING light on this patch of tall flowers, and I insist that we all get in (and trust me, I PAID for it in bug bites, and I'm betting they did too, although at least they had on long pants).
So Mark is telling Katie to be careful not to trample anything in the garden. I'm all like, "It's not a garden, somebody just didn't feel like mowing it!" And Mark's all like, "Ummm ... I'm pretty sure it's a garden." City mouse that I am, anything other than lazy mowing is like a foreign concept to me, so I was like, "Nooooo ...." and then sure enough I turned around, and there's the plaque, proclaiming garden! Thankfully, though, no flowers were harmed in the making of this photograph, and I think Mark managed to forgive me for being an idiot because he later bought me a Diet Coke, which was greatly appreciated and enjoyed. :)

BEAUTIFUL PICS SARAH! You have great talent. But, of course, you had 2 beautiful people to work with! Katie's eyes were sparkling.

Hi Sarah, I saw your comment on my blog! Thanks! I love my little guy. No, Katie and I are not related, but we have been friends since college and work together.
