Brown County Indiana Engagement Session | Stephanie + Adam

Brown County Indiana Engagement Session | Stephanie + Adam

As we pulled into Brown County State Park the sunshine fell through the leaves and onto the road in front of us, leaving a green and gold pattern on the pavement. We drove past the pool where kids were soaking up the last pool days of summer before school started back up again and headed to the horse stables. Stephanie and Adam love animals, and had spent some time horseback riding together so it only made sense to start their engagement session at the stables. The horses were all perfectly at ease, basking in the sunshine while waiting on their next ride down the trails. We took a few minutes to enjoy the quiet peace that the horses bring and then headed to trails ourselves.

We wound our way up steep hills and back down again, passing bicyclists, families picnicking and dogs and their owners out for a jog. Before long we found ourselves off the path and away from other park guests. This was one of my favorite parts of Stephanie and Adam’s session, because for a few quiet moments tucked in between the trees – they took some time to just breathe and be together, focusing on not just their upcoming wedding day but reflecting on this season of engagement they are sharing. One thing that I love most about Stephanie and Adam is how happy they are just to be together. You can feel their happiness just standing next to them. Plus Adam is always making silly faces to make Stephanie laugh, it’s pretty sweet. 🙂

Following a quick stop at one of the many beautiful scenic overlooks that Brown County State Park has to offer, we headed into downtown Nashville, Indiana to see what we could find. We stopped for photos obviously, but also for ice cream! We even swapped Zach’s strawberry ice cream cone for Stephanie’s chocolate as Stephanie and I both agreed that strawberry was indeed the cuter cone of the two. We strolled through the adorable little back alleys along brick sidewalks. Past fudge shops and art galleries. Laughing and joking as we went. 

And then it happened.

Adam has made an incredible Stormtrooper costume and he just so happened to have the helmet with him. I’ve got to say, I already adored Stephanie and Adam, but the fact that they wanted to include his Stormtrooper helmet in their photos made my heart sing! Could they be any cooler? Adam has spent countless hours working on this costume so I know that it means a lot to him (as it should!) and Stephanie fully supports his Star Wars love. These two are just awesome! Zach and I loved spending the day with them and the pizza we grabbed for dinner after! Their wedding in May of next year at The Barn at Kennedy Farm is going to be off the charts amazing! I cannot wait to celebrate with these two and who knows? Maybe instead of suit and tie Adam will wear his Stormtrooper costume? Haha, time will tell!
