This duo was so full of fun and great ideas to make this session their own! Olivia and Steven braved the heat and the bugs for their beautiful engagement shoot! These two ended their session with a BANG! Can you say color explosion?!? Seriously it was a blast to capture them just being them! I cannot wait to send this gallery off to them and continue to work with them in the days leading up to their big day! Thank you both for being so amazing to work with!!

Kate Spade Bridal Shower https://www.torilynnphotography.com/blog/2018/7/kate-spade-bridal-shower Kate Spade Shower- Miss to Mrs. 

Whyte Horse Winery- Monticello, Indiana

The look was inspired by the one and only Kate Spade! Our Bride to Be was showered with paper florals and of course a bubbly bar! All of the little details made this shower an absolute show stopper! With special help from Homestead Bestie Creations our vision and decorations were brought to life! Cakes by Pam outdid herself once again with three layered mini chocolate cakes and of course sugar cookies decorated with all things Spade! Once again a special thank you to Whyte Horse Winery for allowing us to host this beautiful shower on their property and a little love to our wonderful wine tender who was able to help all of the guests make the perfect cocktail!!  Be sure to check out all of the details!!! Enjoy and Congrats to the Mrs. :)

Mark & Stephanie- Engaged https://www.torilynnphotography.com/blog/2018/6/mark-stephanie--engaged Mark and Stephanie~ Engaged!

Monticello, Indiana

June 2018

 

Mark and Stephanie snagged the most perfect spring evening for their first engagement session! We stopped downtown Monticello for a little stroll and then went exploring at the Altherr Nature Park! I have known Mark for several years and recently had the pleasure to meet Stephanie during their wedding consultation! Stephanie had a vision in mind for the months leading up to their 2019 wedding and it includes a full year of engagement sessions (yes that will mean one each season...IM SO HAPPY!!!) We kicked it off their first session during our lovely spring season and let's just say it could not have been any more beautiful! Although the weather had other plans for the fresh blooms we took full advantage of the wildflowers and open fields! I cannot wait until their next session (hint hint it may take place at an amusement park <3 ) and of course their big day!!! Thank you both so much for being amazing and allowing me to capture your final year before you say "I DO"!! 

 

Be sure to check out all the pretty captured in this spring engagement!

West Lafayette, Indiana

May 25,2018

 

This duo was so much fun to work with! I first met the couple at their wedding consultation and I knew right then that I was excited to get to work with them both! We started their session at Ryans second home, the West Lafayette Fire Department!  I love being able to incorporated special details in each of my sessions, so to say I was excited is an understatement! We ventured off to play by the water and in the woods! They were seriously troopers during what I think was the HOTTEST day of the year thus far!  And just wait until you see their fur baby!!! Thank you both so much for allowing my to be apart of such an important time of your lives!!! I cannot wait for your big day! 2018-06-14_00162018-06-14_0016 2018-06-14_00182018-06-14_0018 2018-06-14_00192018-06-14_0019 2018-06-14_00202018-06-14_0020 2018-06-14_00172018-06-14_0017 2018-06-14_00212018-06-14_0021 2018-06-14_00012018-06-14_0001 2018-06-14_00032018-06-14_0003 2018-06-14_00052018-06-14_0005 2018-06-14_00042018-06-14_0004 2018-06-14_00062018-06-14_0006 2018-06-14_00072018-06-14_0007 2018-06-14_00082018-06-14_0008 2018-06-14_00092018-06-14_0009 2018-06-14_00102018-06-14_0010 2018-06-14_00112018-06-14_0011 2018-06-14_00122018-06-14_0012 2018-06-14_00132018-06-14_0013 2018-06-14_00142018-06-14_0014 2018-06-14_00152018-06-14_0015

Welcome Miss Scarlett https://www.torilynnphotography.com/blog/2018/5/welcome-miss-scarlett Scarlett Farrer

Newborn Lifestyle Session

Logansport, IN 

April 2018

 

This little doll baby was nothing short of perfection! Scarlett made her debut to this big world last month! When Kristen and Taylor asked me to shoot their newborn baby girl I was all too excited! I was able to capture this couple before they found out they were expecting and in the process of building their dream home! Now this family of 3 is living their fairytale together in that dream home! I am so happy I was able to capture such important milestones and cannot wait for the years to come! Be sure to check out all of Scarlett and her parents!  Thank you both once again!

Elijah is Half Way to ONE! https://www.torilynnphotography.com/blog/2018/5/elijah-is-half-way-to-one Elijah is Half Way There!

France Park

Logansport, IN 

May 2018

 

 I have had the pleasure of working with this little guy before he made his official appearance!  Watching this little man grow is so much fun and being able to capture it along the way is that much better! We ventured to a secret spot at France Park for his fishing themed session! He was a little shy at first, but with a little music and funny faces we got those perfect smiles!! Be sure to check out the special guest at the end!!!

The morning for the beautiful bride to be started off with hair and makeup with her bridal party and special ladies! 

After a little hairapy the ladies headed to get dolled up and dress for the ceremony!   

 

With help from her maid of honor and bridal party it is time to get this bride to be into her dream dress! 

Brittany wanted to make her first look to her mother one she wouldn’t forget! 

Time to head to the ceremony and promise forever! This location was simply amazing! and to think they get to look out their window and see it everyday…I may be a little jealous!

They had so many personal touches which made it even more personal!

It’s time to marry my best friend! 

Brittany stood at the top of this beautiful stairway that led her down to meet her future husband! 

The couple exchange intimate vows that they wrote for each other to express how deep their love is!

 

Sealed with a KISS!!!

Adam and Brittany made sure to include their fur baby!

How perfect are these colors?!?

 

Both sides of Adam and Brittany were absolutely wonderful and I was able to tell how important it was for them to be there on their special day!

This wedding party was amazing and full of fun! How awesome do they look?

 

Meet the wedding party!!! 

 

A special moment with the maid of honor was a must!!!

 

A little bit of alone time for the Mr. and Mrs. before they start their reception!!!

 

Let me introduce Mr. & Mrs. Adam Kindle!!!!

Adam had special moments with 3 important ladies in his life!!

Time for a little fun! AND CAKE!

I was able to steal Adam and Brittany for a perfect fall sunset! Get ready for all this beauty!!!

We returned to the reception just as the sun had set and lights filled the venue!

The night ended with lots of dancing under the stars! (Did I mention their neighbor made them a sign!?!)

 

Thank you so much Adam and Brittany for allowing me to be apart of your special day! I wish you both nothing but happiness and a lifetime of love!

Isom Party Of Three https://www.torilynnphotography.com/blog/2017/8/isom-party-of-three This couple contacted me for their maternity session last month while visiting friends and family in Indiana.  Martha was so precious and had every little detail planned down to the positioning of her props when i arrived! We snuck away to a private wonderland where Mark was fortunate enough to call his home growing up! Mark and Martha had a cute picnic set-up for the two to cozy up and make memories! 

Aren't these props just the cutest? And they came from their wedding!

Look at that little baby bump! So much love!

That Chandelier!!!!!!!!!

The love between these two was undeniable! 

So ventured off down a wooded path to find a perfect spot for the two so stop and spend time on yet another life long memory!

Isn't she simply stunning?

seriously they are so cute!

BABY BUMP!!!

walk with me and walk beside me on this thing called life!

Look at the love they have for each other!

 

This momma was simply stunning!

 

Thank you so much Mark and Martha for allowing me to capture such a beautiful life milestone! I cannot wait to see that little bundle of joy!
