Yes. Fall Weekend 2010. A little bit later than usual, because we had to wait for someone to get home from their honeymoon… The sixth annual trip of our small group from church headed to the great Indiana farmland (aka my Mom’s house) for food, fun, field trips, and apparently – guns. Guns were new to most of us city boys, and it was fun to learn about how to (safely) use them.

In addition to shooting clay pigeons, we were the lucky recipients of a tour of a grain elevator. My awesome uncle Ron led us through the process of receiving and storing corn and grain from farmers. He patiently answered all our many questions. It was quite the fascinating tour, turns out that our food comes from farmers – who knew?!

And, as usual, we ended the night with a sing-along. Admit it – you love singing bad pop songs from the nineties…


Yep, that’s me.

That too. I’m pretty hardcore.

How did this come about? Well, I’ll leave that to my blogging counterpart :)


Remember Josh and Kelley, our dear friends whose engagement pics we shot this summer? Well, they’re married!  And we had the pleasure of shooting their wedding as well.

The event was absolutely beautiful – and they were the most joyous couple!

Our job was easy, having such beautiful subjects to photograph.

I mean, seriously.

Many congratulations to Kelley and Josh on the start of your new life together!  We are so excited for you both.

And the best part is…they’re our new next door neighbors!  (Yes, literally! When I found out I almost peed myself.)

Thank you to the Davises for the incredible opportunity to capture their day!  See a few more of their photos here.


Apologies for the sparse posting this fall!  We’ve been enjoying the season, both in the kitchen and behind the camera lens. A Couple Cooks has kept us busy experimenting with fresh and seasonal recipes, especially with the recent Thanksgiving holiday!  We hope you had a wonderful day to enjoy with family and friends.


It’s been so much fun to try new things in the kitchen – some of our recent favorites have included:

Sweet Potato, Black Bean, and Green Chile Enchiladas
Roasted Broccoli with Garlic
Stuffed Poblano Peppers
Cabbage and Apples
Roasted Root Vegetables
Crisp Marinated Brussels Sprouts

We also discovered the Indy Winter Farmer’s Market, a bustling new market with a wealth of local vendors. We were excited to see the community’s support of local food, and left with delicious fresh produce that we enjoyed in a seasonal meal with friends. Make sure to check it out if you’re in town!

The holiday season has us thinking about those who don’t have the opportunity to surround themselves with delicious and nutritious food – see this post for some ideas on giving back this season!
