They invited me to their charming, historic home in Indianapolis to capture some engagement portraits. I loved meeting their beloved cat, Winston, who adorned his gold chevron bow tie with grace and style. He is such a sweetheart, and clearly didn’t mind having some time in front of the camera! Kelsey showed us how to make the perfect cocktail, complete with Icelandic vodka, ginger beer, and limes, using a brand new cutting board that was a bridal shower gift. Their home is full of character and perfectly pulls in their style and interests. A map and a moose gives a nod to Will’s Canadian heritage, for example. They love black and white, craft beer and wine tastings, art and architecture, travel and kayaking, taking in symphony performances and generally exploring all that Indianapolis has to offer. In fact, Will and Kelsey were on one such adventure this past November. After enjoying coffee at a favorite local spot and making Christmas ornaments, they toured the Miller House, admiring the mid-century modern architecture – their favorite! – in Columbus, Indiana, when Will suggested they take a detour and visit his alma mater, Indiana University. Being a Ball State alumna, Kelsey wasn’t nearly excited about this idea as her beau, however, she reluctantly agreed. And thank goodness she did…because she was in for quite a surprise! Will gave her a brief campus tour, having served as a guide while at IU, and as they came upon the famous Well House, he paused. While recounting the history behind the structure, Will also mentioned that his grandfather had proposed to his grandmother at a well house similar to this, only in North Carolina on the University of North Carolina’s campus. Over the years, many proposals have taken place in this very spot. Keeping both family and IU tradition alive and well, Will proposed to Kelsey and she said yes! Since then, they’ve been planning their Indianapolis wedding, and will be exchanging vows in a few short weeks! I couldn’t be more excited and honored to share in your big day, K + W!!! Thank you so much for asking me to document this exciting time! Enjoy some favorites from their engagement session in and around their home!
