I met Evan + Riley at Shades State Park for their engagement session which was also the sight that their proposal took place. They were incredibly easy to photograph, slipped into each other’s arms without question, smiled like crazy and shared lots of laughter. My favorite kind of session, if you ask me. If this was any indication of how their wedding will feel next year, I could not be more excited! Basically a total breeze. Plus, it just so happens that her neighbor is one of my favorite florists (Molly & Myrtle) and will also be working on their wedding. Enjoy this preview of their session and some words shared by the couple below.
A note from the bride + groom on how they met:
“Evan and I met freshman year of High School in biology class at Bishop Chatard. We started dating sophomore year and have been together for over 7 years. After 4 years of long-distance through college, we are happy to be back in Indianapolis together. Riley is a nurse at Riley Hospital for Children and Evan is an engineer at Allison Transmission.”
Their favorite thing about each other:
“My favorite thing about Evan is his commitment and loyalty to everything in his life including faith, family and the Packers.”
“My favorite thing about Riley is that she is strong and independent but still wants me to be her other half. “
Their most cherished memory together:
“As a couple, we love to go hiking and camping. It is our goal to visit all of the Indiana State Parks and as many National Parks as we can. We got engaged at Shades State Park which marked our 12th state park. And took our first long road trip to camp at Congaree National Park in May. “
What they look most forward to after their wedding:
“After our wedding, we are most looking forward to relaxing on a beach in Australia and exploring the beauty of their national parks.”
"To say Lex was the easiest to work with would be an understatement. She makes your sessions so personal, is very easy to talk to, and her work is seriously top notch. We will be using her for every event possible from here on out. She made our wedding such an ease and was so amazing to work with! She is fantastic and I would recommend her to anyone!"

"Lex is absolutely amazing to work with and a joy to be around. The images she captured from our big day are stunning. We would be thrilled with only a few of the photos that’s how beautiful they are. Will forever be thankful for her being a part of our special day."
- Kyle + Hillary
"Lex immediately made us feel relaxed at our engagement session, which continued over to the wedding day. She is so laid back, has amazing ideas and makes sure to incorporate what you want in your photos as well. She is fun to be around and makes the day special! Great quality photos- just beautiful- and great price for what you get. Cannot recommend her enough!
- Gabe + Tess
"Lex was a great photographer to work with for our wedding! She has such a great talent for making the pictures feel effortless. Leading up to the wedding, she gave suggestions about the day of timeline in order to keep things moving, and it helped to take some of the planning stress off of us. I would definitely recommend Lex for anyone looking for a photographer in the Indianapolis area!"
