Themed photoshoots are amazing ways to personalize and show your love in a unique and artistic way. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of covering several. But, I think this one, might be my favorite. The couple are breathtaking and the photographers are incredibly talented.
The Couple – Jake and Sarah
When I spoke to Neeley Photography they told me that what made this photoshoot perfect was the couple! They’ve known Jake and Sarah (The Bride and Groom on the Set) for years! They went to high school together. Knowing Jake from college, they later met Sarah. Neeley Photography was actually their wedding photographer.
How the couple met
Jake and Sarah met in the choir and theater programs at Castle. They both appeared in the musical Grease in 2011. Two years later they were both part of the same Mixed Show Choir and Castle Knight Sensations.
Before Valentine’s Day weekend, Sarah learned that Jake had broken up with his ex. So, she gave him a sweet note, “I’ll be your valentine if you need one,” and things exploded from there.
Jake and Sarah, both attended Indiana University, got married a month after graduating and now have a son. The Drive-In shoot celebrates the 10th anniversary of their meeting at the Grease Auditions.
This shoot was a dream shoot for me! This is one of those shoots that I have been thinking about doing for 3 years. I really wanted to capture this summer love, to feel. Grease and Happy Day’s were a big inspiration for this shoot. We especially wanted to really capture the look of the 50s and 60s. That is why we strive to choose a tea length dress, the retro hairstyle and the old fashioned car. – Photograph by Neeley

Indiana Couple Celebrate Anniversary With Retro “Love At The Drive-In” Photoshoot
Neeley Photography is made up of myself, Bree Neeley and Jesse Reising, and we’ve been running our business together since we were juniors in high school. It started 9 years ago when we had a friend who couldn’t afford senior photos, so we took them for fun and posted them on Facebook. We film almost everything! The things we shoot the most are weddings, engagements, proposals, seniors, families, motherhood, vacations, and fancy dress shows. We also do a lot of corporate team-ups, that’s what this drive-in shoot was like!
