We are so grateful to have the opportunity to capture amazing weddings in Indianapolis and throughout the Midwest. Photos help you to continue to experience moments for years to come. It is our drive, and passion, to capture these beautiful moments beyond your expectations.
We are wedding photographers, Jennifer & Steven Van Elk and we hope we are honored to be part of your wedding team.
We are college sweethearts (BSU), who met through mutual friends in Indianapolis. We married August 16th, 2008, right out of college, just sixteen months after we started dating. We have two kids, Iain and Nora.
We love to share things that make us laugh. You'll find us on our free time together visiting local breweries and trying new restaurants. Our travel plans mostly revolve around which breweries and restaurants we should visit!
We are kind of movie junkies. Although we work together, we try to spend as much quality time together, usually snuggled up on the couch watching a movie, after the kids are asleep. These are some of our favorite times together.

Our Love Story
Our goal is to hand over beautiful images that you will cherish for years to come. Our images communicate the visual story of your wedding day. Our couples have their own unique personalities which we let shine through our images.
Collections with Jenn start at .
All collections include two photographers, so that as many moments as possible are captured. Images from the day are available for you to download on an online gallery and a mobile app. The gallery is available to share with your friends and family that are just as excited to see your photos as you! Contact us for more details.
A portion of all weddings booked in 2018 will be donated to the Internation Rescue Committee, which help people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.

These two were amazing and their pictures were stunning! They felt like family at our reception and with our engagement shoot! I'd recommend them to anyone! They truly were a dream to work with - I couldn't have asked for more!
Their photos are amazing. We did an engagement shoot and our wedding with them and both were perfect. Also, an added bonus was having access to our photos only ONE WEEK after our wedding. I wasn't expecting this, and it was an amazing surprise. The quality of what you're getting from Team Van Elk is certainly worth the price, I promise!
For five years that my husband and I dated, I always knew that JVE Photo would be the one I would wan to capture our wedding. Her kind heart and attention to detail were the first two things that stood out to me...
... We contacted her, and she was willing to give up one of her vacation days to ensure she could shoot our wedding in July... We were THRILLED to receive our wedding photos back... I would recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality, friendly, and caring photographer!
