Meet the adorable Skye and RJ! Skye contacted me and was wanting to take her and RJ's engagement portraits while they would be in town for RJ's brother's Purdue University graduation (they currently live out of state). They also wanted to take portraits at the zoo and set everything up at the zoo for a certain date so they needed their session to happen on that day. I was completely booked for that weekend and passed along a few other photographers for her. However, I was able to finesse my schedule a bit and I was able to photograph their session and I am so glad I was able to because it was a TON of fun!
Skye and RJ met while they were both working at Columbia Park Zoo in Lafayette, Indiana while they were both attending Purdue University. They hit it off and started dating and then RJ ended up proposing! They are tying the knot later on this year. Since they have strong ties to Purdue University and Columbia Park Zoo they wanted to do their engagement session at both of those places.
We started at sunrise at Purdue University. It was Purdue's commencement that day so we wanted to beat the rush and it was perfect on campus! After we did photos throughout Purdue we went to Columbia Park Zoo and we took photos with a sloth, snake, porcupine, and others! It was a blast!
Enjoy a few of my favorite's from their session below!
