We had a super fun time spending the evening taking pictures with, soon to be married, Ryan Pickering & Alisa Stutsman. After warming up to the camera, these two were complete naturals in front of the camera. We spent an hour at the Oliver Mansion and then another hour at the East Race, both in downtown South Bend.  This mansion is really amazing because of the intricate architecture and detail.  The Oliver Mansion has been a landmark of downtown South Bend for a long time and it makes a super setting for photography.  Ryan and Alisa are both in the architecture industry, so it fit them well.  You can tell from the pictures, these two were genuinely happy to be in each others' company! It's an honor to have been picked to be their photographer, and we can't wait to be able to photograph their wedding this coming up October. Cheers to Ryan & Alisa!
