One of the best parts about photographing couples on their journey to marriage is getting to hear their stories about how their love came to be. No couple or story is ever the same and it never gets old. In fact, it’s one of the perks that makes this job so fun and so rewarding.
In the case of Claire and Zack, this couldn’t be more true. Bringing their smiles, laughter, and undeniable affection for one another, we met on the canal in dowtown Indianapolis for their engagement session. The fact that they both live in separate places – Claire’s is in New Jersey and Zack’s currently living in Oklahoma City – certainly played a part in their thrill to be together for the photo shoot and it shows.
Now, you know a love must be true when a person has literally traveled the globe only to return home and find that special someone there. Claire falls into the category of people fortunate enough to have traveled extensively in her life. Even more incredible, she spent 3 years in China! However, it was at home in the US where Claire found her life’s companion. Having met at a small college in Illinois, Claire and Zack’s relationship has only grown despite the miles between them.
The day of the session was perfect. Everything from the weather to the different settings around the city used for the photo shoot made it a walk in the park. Of course, it could have been raining and it wouldn’t have mattered; their chemistry was so strong that even an unpredictable obstacle like rain wouldn’t have stood in the way.
With their wedding planned for next year at the Indiana Landmarks Center, Claire and Zack anxiously count down the days until the distance between them finally closes in.
