Fort Wayne Engagement Pictures: Kristina + Stan

In February, Kristina and Stan won our drawing at the 2012 Bridal Extravaganza for a FREE Engagement Portrait Session!  After spending the afternoon with them take their engagement pictures, I couldn’t help but feel thankful that their paths crossed with mine. What warm, unassuming, wonderful people they are!  There was such a romantic and honest glimmer in their eyes that I was dying to know how they met. Stan admitted to me that his interest in Kristina didn’t take long to take root after they met online. After a few small exchanges, Stan took Kristina to a Brad Paisley concert. At the concert, Stan was overwhelmed with feeling as though he and Kristina had know each other all of their lives. Kristina’s grace and easy way of Being, stole Stan’s heart.  And she finds his cowboy-like strength and tenderness absolutely irresistable.

Kristina and Stan are planning their wedding in Fort Wayne, Indiana this October. We met at a quaint little antique shop (now come on…you all should know by now that I rarely reveal my locations!) for their engagement session and I couldn’t have had more fun.  Here are a few of my favorites…

Stan owns and rides a horse so it was only fitting that we happened upon some horses (even if there were just made out of wire….) during our shoot.

After a quick change, we explored a rock quarry (okay, it was more like a concrete graveyard), that satisfied my need to create some spontaneous and intimate moments.  One of the best parts of shooting on location is that if I see something inspirational, I can just pull off on the side of the road and take advantage of it!

I’ll end this post with these sweet pictures…they showcase everything Kristina and Stan are: content with who they are both as individuals and as a couple (come on, how many couples can say that!), in love, and beautifully matched for each other.
