Bianca + Thomas | Japan House engagement session

Bianca + Thomas told me from the get-go that they are quirky and weird and they definitely wanted to play that up for their engagement photos. I definitely got several photos of them sticking their tongues out at each other and a few with some funny poses, though those didn’t quite make the cut for the blog — LOL. I’m sure there will be some from the wedding though!! I love how after a few minutes of us getting comfortable together during the session, they both relaxed a little and we settled into a good groove! Keep an eye out at the end of October for their Halloween-themed wedding!

Kelly + Jack | University of Illinois Quad + Arboretum engagement

Kelly + Jack are college sweethearts who have spent a large portion of their relationship separated by distance.  Kelly's sister attended the University of Illinois at the same time as Jack, so conveniently was able to visit both her sister and Jack when she came to Champaign.  They are currently still living long distance with Kelly a state away while Jack pursues an advanced degree, but are anxiously planning their wedding!  I spent a perfect evening with them around campus, first on the Quad, and then to the U of I Arboretum's Hartley Gardens. Take a peek at the images we created!

Beth + Curtis | Fall golden hour engagement pictures


Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Beth + Curtis, a couple of teachers who were so easy to work with! I always wonder how the final product will look when I photograph a couple that I've never met before, but I couldn't be happier with these results! They chose perfectly complimentary outfits, and they are adorable to boot! Easy peasy! :) Enjoy! Arboretum Hartley Gardens session
