Rachel + Zane = Married! | Indianapolis, IN


Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Galyan! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your absolutely amazing wedding day on Saturday!  I just love these two and their families and friends!!!! They have so much love for everyone around them.  I couldn't be happier for you two and I am extremely honored to be a part of your engagement and wedding photography! It was a spectacular and breath-taking wedding with personal touches, amazing details and elegance throughout the day.  I couldn't be more happy for you and I feel absolutely honored that I was able to capture your love story!  

Rachel and Zane met at Indiana University, so it was perfect that we go back to explore, laugh and photograph their engagement photos on campus at IU back in the Fall.  I had an absolute blast getting to learn more about them and laughed lots.  You know when you meet someone and you feel so comfortable and feel as if you have known them for years . . . I have felt that way since I met Rachel and her parents, Janet and Chuck, for their original meeting.  When it comes to their love story, I had a blast learning more about them throughout our planning, engagement photos and wedding day.  Rachel and Zane found each other when neither one of them was looking for a relationship.  He was in his senior year and she was young and independent as a sophomore.  After a couple years of dating, they had just been through so much and grown both individually and as a couple.  Their relationship had developed so much and they both knew they would be together forever.  With their busy schedules, they love getting to spend time with other another.  I had to ask about their favorite date nights and loved learning that they enjoy Mexican food and wine!  Many of their "date nights" or nights that they get to spend together usually include one or the other (or both).  So much fun!  The wedding proposal happened over a vacation where they went to Sanibel Island in Florida, where her family always vacations.  One night before dinner, they were taking pictures on the beach, and Zane "popped the question" and asked for her hand in marriage.  Rachel’s parents knew it was coming, as Zane gentlemanly and previously asked for their permission, and were excited to be there to witness it happening.  Rachel’s parents were able to capture the moment by taking pictures of the proposal on the beach as it was happening. What a great proposal!  I love that Rachel is really a planner at heart as it comes out in all the details!  Rachel and Zane got married in the same church where Janet and Chuck (Rachel's Parents) were married and Rachel was baptized.  It was an action-packed day with various stops around downtown Indy in our Hummer Limo.  It all made for some gorgeous photography (and I am so glad the rain held off for us)!!  Rachel’s favorite part of wedding planning was just imagining the day as it all comes together and they both were really excited for the reception to celebrate with their family and friends after all of the formalities are over!  It was an absolutely spectacular wedding day planned with so many details, personal touches and love.  They are excited that they now are beginning their life together as husband and wife.  

I love them and couldn't be more excited for them. What a super cute couple.  What a wonderful team to be a part of for this wedding . . . we love the happiness you two find in each other and seeing everything come together on your beautiful wedding day. I can't wait to see all that you accomplish as a couple. I know you will have so much fun and enjoy married life!!
