Location Recommendations for Sessions Near Indianapolis, Indiana

For engagement, branding, and family sessions I’m often asked where the best spots around Indianapolis are for pictures so I wanted to share a few of my recommendations with you!

Since we specialize in weddings, weekends are reserved solely for weddings! I shoot sessions Monday-Thursday at sunrise or sunset so we can get the best possible lighting. You can have as many outfits as you’d like but I typically recommend two total: one causal and one fancy. Check out recommendations for your session attire here!

I’ll be sure to keep this up to date as I discover more locations around Indianapolis & surrounding areas!
