Fresh & Modern Inspiration Shoot – Exclusive to ENGAGED!


Putting together this fresh and modern wedding inspiration shoot was so much fun. For those brides who aren’t drawn to the rustic, boho or country vibe that our region is saturated in, we wanted to create a clean, fun look at a fabulous, historic venue right in the heart of Evansville, IN. The Pagoda offers breathtaking riverfront views on its rooftop pavilion along with the historic building’s one-of-kind Asian aesthetic. Perfect for a small, intimate wedding and/or reception, you will not find any other place like it!


Our beautiful models are all family – can you tell!?! The fabulous gene is strong in these ladies. They rocked their asymmetrical, modern cut dresses courtesy of Dillard’s of Evansville and we cannot say enough about the white pants suit our bridal model wore. If only we all had the guts to pull off such a chic, modern look!! All we can say is be brave ladies and go for it!!!!


And we cannot forget about our debonair groom model who gives definition to the word “smoldering.” Photographer, Stephanie Susie captured all angles of this shoot even going the extra mile to lay on concrete, charm passing dogs and spread her hilarious personality all around.


Jane Elpers of OBJ Design brought it all together with decor styled with succulents, pops of color, metal finishes and a happy palette of bright colors and striped patterns. And happy surprise of all, the seasonal tulips planted around the building complemented our color scheme to the T! Which makes for one happy team of people.


Videography team, Eyenamics was on hand to capture it all coming together and used the opportunity to try out new video equipment which they later put up on their YouTube channel. Check it out here.

Great people, great day and even greater shots. Enjoy and Be Engaged!
