Allerton Park

Kayleigh + Tyler | Monticello Robert Allerton Park stylish engagement photos

Relationship goals, am I right?  I adore this couple and their sweet puppy Cooper!  Kayleigh + Tyler were easy to work with and pose and had a few great ideas themselves.  When they changed into their second outfits, I was totally in heaven!  I couldn't have chosen more perfect outfits for them.  We met up at Allerton Park and took our time wandering around the grounds looking for golden pockets of light, water features, and cool architecture.  I seriously can't wait for their wedding next May!

Grace | Champaign Centennial high school senior


Grace is a senior at Champaign Centennial and is active on the swimming team. She just found out a couple days ago that she’s been accepted to her school of choice — Southern Illinois University! As a busy senior, she didn’t get around to doing her senior session until the first week of December. We were lucky enough to get a sunny day that was still above freezing. Grace did amazing with the poses I put her in, and it was fun getting to know her as we walked around Allerton Park together. I realized she was shivering at the very end, but she never complained! Thanks for a great session, Grace! outdoor snowy grass senior girl session

Stephanie + Bobby | Allerton Park engagement photography | Monticello


Stephanie + Bobby recently booked me for their wedding in August of next year, and from what they've already told me, it's going to be a fantastic, beautiful event! They wanted to do their engagement session this fall with the nice weather and to have plenty of time to send out their save-the-dates. I love that they chose bright colors in their outfits for the first half of the session around the grounds at Allerton Park near Monticello. Lavender is actually one of the wedding colors, so it ties in very nicely! I had them do a quick outfit change before we left the park to head to downtown Monticello for the second half of the session. Stephanie + Bobby were game for any posing suggestions I had and told me they just wanted a bunch of nice pictures. I think we did really well meeting their expectations! engagement pics in brick walled garden
