We are Sam + Bryt, wife and wife elopement photographers, business educators, and LGBTQ+ activitists! We are so freaking excited that you are here!
If you are ready to go on an adventure, feel empowered, or learn how to level up your business, we are your girls! So.. what are you waiting for? Let's do this thing!
A few months ago Beth Waterman at The Ivory Foundry Wedding and Events reached out in a local wedding group asking for vendors to help plan a styled shoot at her new Indianapolis Wedding Venue. She wanted to showcase that her venue was inclusive and wanted to find vendors to help support that. We couldn’t have been more honored to help plan and capture this beautiful space and showcase their inclusion for our LGBTQ+ community.
So, Jasmine Norris and I got to work and began to plan and source out other inclusive vendors to make the dream become a reality! Our vision was a colorful, pastel rainbow inspired wedding and WOW did all of the vendors deliver!
We then reached out to one of our very own wedding couples, Brock + Riley, to model for us! So right before their wedding, they suited up and pretended to get married 🙂 We also had Marvin (who you probably will recognize from WLFI) model for us in an amazing cape that Jasmine created!
Now, we know you are ready to see more photos of this Indianapolis Wedding Venue and the styled shoot, but before we begin, we need to thank all of the amazing vendors that came together to make this possible! So as you are scrolling, don’t forget to show them some love!
