Ryan and Sara | Indianapolis Portrait Photographer

I am warning you in advance: this post is very long.

All of my clients are wonderful, but every so often you get a perfect day with perfect weather and perfect everything. Yesterday was one of those days. Well, okay...so the weather wasn't actually perfect to begin with. Our session started out with about an hour of chatting at Starbucks while the rain poured down outside. But I was SO glad we waited it out because the after-effect was BEAUTIFUL. The sky was perfectly diffused with the after-rain clouds and we even got the occasional peek of sunshine. It was warm enough but not too warm. Sunny enough but not too sunny. As I said...perfect.

Sara, I know I've semi-known you for quite a while but it was great getting to know you better and having a chance to hear your oh-so-romantic engagement story. ;) Ryan, you've picked a great girl! I'm glad you two decided to wait out the rain with me. I hope you love these pictures!

This was one of our first shots of the day. It's very possibly my favorite.

Why yes, these ARE 3-D glasses. Don't mock - you know you want some.

They were totally awesome - scaling buildings and standing in the middle of the street for me.

Of course, I did my fair share of standing in the middle of the street too.

What can I say? I have a weakness for signs.

I spotted this alley as we ran through the rain to Starbucks and knew I had to incorporate it at some time:

On our search for some really cool mural walls I had seen when I arrived downtown, we happened upon this huge delivery door. Score!

We finally found them!
