I’ve known Katy for years now, because we both used to work for the same college ministry, Campus Outreach. She is seriously one of the sweetest, most kind hearted, secretly funny, others-centered people that I know. She recently picked up and moved out to East St. Louis, because she wanted to be a part of the work God is doing to help heal the brokenness there with a church called City of Joy Fellowship. How amazing is that?

I always wondered who the lucky guy would be that would sweep Katy off of her feet! Then steps in Joel! I hadn’t gotten to actually meet him until this engagement session, but I was definitely impressed! What a perfect fit! I love how sweet Joel is with Katy and how easily he makes her laugh! They had me cracking up the whole evening!

We decided to do Katy + Joel’s engagement session at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, because why wouldn’t we? That park is so beautiful in every season, but I especially love the Fall colors! You wouldn’t know it from the photos but it was actually reallyyyyy cold! Katy + Joel were in town from St. Louis for the day and we decided to do their session that evening, but brrr was it a chilly one! What speaks so much into who they are though is that they didn’t complain once about it and braved the cold like champs, while looking so good doing it!

Katy + Joel are tying the knot this January out in St. Louis and I’m SO excited about it! After this chilly engagement session they will be well prepared to take winter wedding photos! I have a feeling it’s going to be absolutely gorgeous! Until then, enjoy a few of my favorites from their engagement session!
