An Engagement Shoot at the Indianapolis Museum of Art from Jesse Daniels

Today’s engagement shoot from Jesse Daniels Photography has such a romantic story behind it, I just had to share. Troy and Lauren were starting to do the long distance thing when Troy was amazed to discover that Lauren had never read the Harry Potter books (crazy, right?). So he started reading them over the phone to her every night! And this, my friends, is how they fell in love. Don’t you just love it?

So, of course, they had to include Mr. Potter in their engagement shoot. They brought a picnic blanket and some books to the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s outdoor sculptures and the result is, in photographer Jesse Daniel’s words, “not an over-elaborate set or concept; just an idea that is very close to couple’s heart, making for lovely, memorable photos.”  We couldn’t agree more.
The couple sit and pose with each other amongst several colorful number statues.The couple sit and pose with each other amongst large, multi-colored number statues.The couple sit on the sidewalk in front of a large letter statue spelling the word love.The couple hold hands with each other as they stand amongst the colorful statues.The couple smile as they lay with each other on a blanket in the grass with their Harry Potter books.The couple share a kiss behind the cover of a Harry Potter book as they lay on a blanket in the grass.The future bride's engagement ring rests on a Harry Potter book in front of the couple as they embrace.The future bride's engagement ring rests on a Harry Potter book as she lays in her groom's lap.The couple lay on a blanket in the grass by the forest as the future groom reads from a book.The couple share playful looks with each other as they each hold a Harry Potter book.The couple look at each other as they stand in a field surrounded by trees.The couple embrace each other and hold hands in the sunlight by small flowers.The couple pose with each other as they sit near the trees.The couple look at each other and embrace by a wrought iron gate in a forest.
