Syanda + Erich = Engaged! | Indianapolis, IN

Congratulations, Syanda and Erich, on your engagement!  I had so much fun getting to have fun and photograph you two in the gorgeous engagement photo locations.  You are an absolutely adorable couple.  Could you two be any more stinking cute together??!!!?  So much love for one another.  I love getting to photograph my event friends' engagement photos and weddings!!  I can't wait for your wedding celebration!  What an honor to be a part of it all.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement photo session and a little more about their love story . . .

  • How or where did you two first meet?  We first met in 2011 due to work
  • What is one of your favorite "date nights" consist of? “Date Nights” are usually pretty impromptu due to work so anytime we can grab dinner on Mass Ave. or have Sushi Sunday with friends is considered a “date.” It’s hard to go wrong with a well made Manhattan or signature bourbon cocktail.  “Date nights” are always fun, but we honestly enjoy just watching Jeopardy…typically with laptops out and working.
  • How did the wedding proposal happen?  Erich said he was going to make dinner at home the night he proposed. I had no idea it was happening but when I got home that evening the screen door on the back porch was locked (which NEVER happens). Once he opened the door I realized the pocket door in the kitchen was closed to the dining room and the cat was “trapped” in the basement and I knew something was up. When I walked in the dining room there were candles and old books (many of which have family/sentimental value) arranged in the words “Marry Me” in front of a roaring fireplace. He went down on one knee and said “will you?” Once we were eating he confessed that he had put the cat in the basement because he had visions of her catching on fire with all the candles. She’d totally be that cat.
  • How or why did you choose the wedding locations you did?  We’ve both seen so many weddings/events that it was really about choosing places that we enjoy. Erich loves racing so Dallara Indy Car Factory was an easy choice. The ceremony location is going to be a surprise and we’re very excited about taking our closest friends and family to a location we doubt most have seen. 
  • What has been your favorite part of the wedding planning process so far?  Since many of our guests are friends from “the industry,” it has been fun to come up with something not everyone sees all the time.
  • What are you looking forward to on the wedding day? Syanda: I’m pretty excited to see Erich’s face when he sees “the dress” for the first time. I’m obviously biased but it’s a pretty fantastic dress.
I just love these two.  Here are a few of my favorites . . .
