The Palladium

Carmel, Indiana

This is one of my favorite locations to bring clients who are on the hunt for a classy, modern look to their photos. With tall pillars, stairs, and meticulously kept landscaping around the Palladium, this spot is perfect for anyone who loves the feel and vibe of Carmel and wants their engagement photos to feel that way too! This location is also in walking distance from lots of incredible restaurants, which is perfect to turn your engagement session into a date night!

Coxhall Gardens

Carmel, Indiana

Another Carmel classic, Coxhall Gardens offer a little bit of everything in terms of scenery for engagement photos. There’s a large mansion on the property as well as a barn, pond, amphitheater, and more. This spot is perfect for the clients who really are looking for variety in their galleries all while staying close-by to one location!

The Village

Zionsville, Indiana

There’s truly nowhere that has a cuter downtown area than Zionsville does! In the village you’ll find cobblestone streets, adorable storefronts, industrial-looking alley ways, and so much more. This location is under-utilized in my opinion but has so much variety and potential!!! If you’re looking for the perfect spot to take engagement photos on the northwest side of Indy, you’ve found it here!

Garfield Park Conservatory

Indianapolis, Indiana

Garfield Park is such a unique area in Indianapolis and I love the unique aspects that shooting at the conservatory brings! Rain or shine, no matter what the weather, your photos here are sure to be absolutely stunning. Whether you’re a plant lover or just looking to bring some greenery into your photos during a winter engagement, this location is perfect!

Aspiring Eden Studios

Indianapolis, Indiana

Looking for a STUNNING natural light studio in the heart of downtown indianapolis? Look no further than Aspiring Eden Studios! My friend Bree has done an outstanding job creating this space and it offers the perfect blank-slate for your love to be the center focus. There are two different spaces available to rent and both have a unique aspect to them. If you’re envisioning a vibey studio session, you’ll love shooting at Aspiring Eden Studios.


Indianapolis, Indiana

Newfields is an all-time fave of mind and just an absolute classic Indianapolis engagement session location! From the stunning mansion in the middle of the property to all the beautiful gardens there are to explore, this location brings a very elegant and luxury feel to your photos. If that’s the vibe you’re going for, it’s absolutely worth purchasing a photo pass to shoot here! 

Holcomb Gardens

Indianapolis, Indiana

Located right off campus at Butler University, Holcomb Gardens are stunning! Right by the river, this location has ample green space and manicured lawns. I love the vibes here at sunset especially and it’s also fun to explore parts of Butler University if you have time! This is another favorite that isn’t utilized as much but I can’t recommend this spot enough!

Bottleworks District

Indianapolis, Indiana

Finishing the list out with one of my most favorite spots– Bottleworks District never disappoints! From the elegant vibes outside the hotel to the playful fun of the garage and movie theater, there’s a little bit of everything here and it’s so fun to capture in the midst of the hustle and bustle of downtown.
