University of Notre Dame Engagement Photos

Alyssa and John are getting married in a couple weeks and we traveled to South Bend, IN for their engagement pictures at the University of Notre Dame. It a beautiful afternoon for us to explore campus from a different perspective. No longer lugging books in a backpack…we were looking for photogenic spots! But let’s be honest, there sooooo many little nooks and crannies for photos!

If you were needing a photographer for your proposal or engagement photos…be sure to send us a message!
