The day of this super cute engagement session started a little gloomy with a pretty ominous weather forecast so what better way to start than with ¬†some delicious mini-cupcakes from Cream and Flutter? (seriously… try the red velvet, they are yummy)


Macey warned us that she was nervous and she laughs a lot when she’s nervous. As you will see, Macey has a gorgeous smile that lights up the room, so it kinda worked in our favor that she was nervous.

Macey and Kirk have been together for three years and the friendship they have in each other is an integral part of their love story.

When two people have been together as long as Fran and Jenn have, you might expect photographs depicting a love that is strong, true and meant to last forever. You won’t be disappointed in what we are about to show you!

We always start our session with some easy photos that we never expect to be shown because it’s a “warm-up”. These images are meant to just get everyone talking and starting to feel comfortable together and with being photographed.

Fran and Jenn come together so naturally and their love is so palpable, even these first few images were magical.


Fran swept Jenn off her feet before she even graduated high school and they’ve weathered a long distance relationship while she went away to school. After all this, no wonder they fit so perfectly together.


The beautiful weather and fall colors were begging for some fun sunny photos to capture this fresh, vibrant future bride and groom


Just look at these two – such a gorgeous couple!


I passed this street on the way to the session and couldn’t resist going back. It’s no Dirty Dancing move (though I’m expecting to see that at the reception), but it works! Fran was such a good sport and only regretted the game of football that he had played that weekend.


Fran and Jenn – Tammy and I are thrilled that you have chosen us to capture your wedding. We can’t wait to spend the day with you telling your story in images that you will treasure for a lifetime!

Kristin fell in love with this location and when she told Kevin about it, he didn’t believe it existed. I learned that this is kind of a theme in their relationship – 2 years ago they also didn’t believe they would ever date.

I love engagement sessions because it gives us an opportunity to spend some time with our couples prior to the wedding day. This is when we learn how comfortable they are in front of the camera and how they interact with each other.

I knew from our booking session that this particular couple never has their photo taken and it’s really not their thing to pose for the camera for an hour, so we did this session in record time… about 30 minutes.

Jen and Foster (Ken’s nickname) were troopers, following me all around the University of Illinois Arboretum grounds and we got some great shots.
