Our favorite sessions are always those that are taken in nature. One of our favorite spots is the Tippecanoe River State Park! There are tons of options at the Nature Center, certain trails, and even (carefully) standing in the middle of the road makes for a great shot. But no matter where we take your pictures, it’s always about the smiles, laughter, and love that we can capture of you and your loved ones. Mandy and Coty made this part easy with plenty of giggles, snuggly moments, and sweet kisses.
High School sweethearts found each other again!
Coty and Mandy dated when they were 15 years old and had known each other long before that. After two great years together they split up when Mandy and her family moved away. Then according to Mandy, “We both went our separate ways and loved our lives. The start of 2017 we sparked a conversation on Facebook and picked up right where we left off 14 years prior.”
Mandy was living in Florida and Coty in Indiana but they stayed in touch and made it work. However, when the hurricane hit Florida Mandy flew home and realized this is where she needed and wanted to be. So she moved home to Indiana (after a lot of persuasion from Coty). Mandy says, “two months later we moved my stuff home and moved into his house!“
Hunting partners for life.
After dating for two years Coty decided to surprise Mandy on their 2 year anniversary by having her climb into her tree stand where she found a sign he had placed and the most beautiful ring Mandy says she had ever seen. The sign read “Will you be my huntin’ partner for life?“ Their dreams were finally coming true—marrying their best friend since they were kids. Coty and Mandy have an adorable story that has lasted the test of time and many miles.
Stay tuned for Coty and Mandy’s October 2020 wedding!!
Fall weddings are some of our favorites. We love the colors, the weather, and the fall vibes. We will be photographing and videotaping their special day. It will feature sunflowers and all of the fall colors like burgundy, champagne, orange, and brown. They have special family antiques that they will include in their wedding and items from those that have passed. Mandy and Coty are excited to see all of their hard work and planning come together, friends and family all in one place, but most importantly Mandy can’t wait to see the look on Coty’s face when he first sees her walk down the aisle. Here’s to these two sweethearts who I’m know are counting down the days.
