Amanda and Jimmy’s summer engagement photos in downtown Indianapolis are absolutely dreamy! Complete with a glowing downtown sunset, a Bottleworks District stop, their dog Brian, and ice cream cones, these two truly had the ultimate summer photo shoot. I am so excited to share this lovely couple and these gorgeous photos on the blog!
From the moment I met Amanda and Jimmy I was so excited for their summer engagement photos in downtown Indianapolis!
I make sure to book a consultation with every potential KMP couple, and I could tell immediately that Amanda and Jimmy were special. I could feel their kindness through our video call screen, and I could not wait to meet them in person! When we met in downtown Indianapolis, they greeted me with the sweetest words and a batch of homemade cookies! This gesture was so darn sweet and I just knew these two were going to capture my heart.
Amanda and Jimmy are the best of friends, so it was easy to capture authentic smiles and genuine laughter!
Amanda and Jimmy met at IU during their sophomore year, where they were both involved with the IU Dance Marathon committee. While raising money for an incredible cause and leading fellow college students, these two clicked immediately and began crushing on each other. They went from IUDM teammates to teammates for life – and they balance out each other so well! Jimmy proposed last November complete with a photographer to capture the special moment and a surprise engagement party with 50 of their closest friends! After meeting this sweet couple, I am not surprised at all to hear how special their engagement was!
It’s all about the location!
Together we chose a few locations for this summer engagement shoot in downtown Indianapolis. The War Memorial Plaza Statue was sadly under construction, but there are so many perfect spots downtown that it didn’t even matter! The sunset was on our side and peeked behind different buildings. We then stopped at the iconic Bottleworks District to capture more gorgeous shots. As we were wrapping up we decided to stop by their favorite ice cream spot, Lick in the Garage at the Bottleworks District, and got the most adorable photos that capture their personality and something they both love!
Amanda surprised Jimmy by arranging their dog Brian to join in on their summer engagement photos in Downtown Indianapolis!
Jimmy had been hoping to bring Brian, their adorable dog, along for engagement photos, but Amanda kept turning down the idea. Little did Jimmy know, Amanda had arranged for her sister to meet us in the Bottleworks District with Brian! Jimmy’s reaction was priceless – these two truly go out of their way to make each other’s day! Not only was this a great surprise, but it helped us get “family photos” with their dog without too much hassle. Dogs have a ton of energy, and it was so great to have a fourth person along at the shoot to handle the pup while we take more photos. I highly suggest recruiting a friend or family member to do this for your wedding or engagement session if you want photos with your furry friend!
Thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer, Amanda and Jimmy!
You two truly make me smile, and I can’t wait for your April 2023 wedding! Amanda and Jimmy chose the gorgeous Ritz Charles Garden Pavilion for their spring wedding, and I just can’t wait to capture this day. If it’s anything like their summer engagement photos in downtown Indianapolis, it will be nothing short of spectacular!
