I knew this engagement session was going to be amazing from the first time Kiah contacted me. Kiah and Derek are both Notre Dame grads and recently Derek popped the big question on campus, so they knew they had to find a way back to campus for their engagement photos! After finding their perfect local wedding photographer (me!) their plan was coming together!

They had both made recent career moves that took them to different parts of the country but wanted to get back together for their engagement session at their alma mater campus. They knew they wanted a snow filled love story for the theme of there photos, so we picked a date to “shoot” for (lol, no pun intended). In Indiana, you never know what you’ll get, but lucky enough the weather leading up to the date showed plenty of snow in the forecast, so it worked out perfect!

We started off in front of the famous golden dome for a few shots….the snow was really coming down at this point!

These two were completely amazing to work with! Their natural connection was contagious and it was an absolute blast to shoot with them.

What a better way to start a lifelong relationship than to light a candle of blessing together….

Time to cuddle up and get warm together! Derek sure knows how to score brownie points when he grabs the blanket and wraps Kiah up tight :) They are perfect together…blizzard and all!

When you’re in a local Indiana snow storm, there’s no better way to end a day of picture taking and walking around campus than to have an epic snowball fight!

A huge shout out to Kiah and Derek for choosing this local photographer to capture this special time in their lives together! With all the choices in photographers today, it’s an honor that they’d choose Dave Thompson Photography! We had such a blast this day, it’s surely on the top of our list for the most fun session to date!

We wish we could be there to see the wedding day, I’m sure it will be amazing! CONGRATS!
