Shannon + Jordan | Downtown Urbana engagement photography

Shannon + Jordan will be getting married next June, and they hired me based on their experience with me from Shannon's sister Haley's wedding a couple years ago. Their wedding will be my first wedding to photograph at the Allerton Mansion, so I, of course, am stoked for that! We started out their session in downtown Urbana, where we met up in front of CU Studio Share, and wandered around down Fish Alley, in a parking garage, beside the Urbana Free Library, and near the Courier Cafe. Then we headed over to Champaign where they changed outfits at their apartment, and we walked over to West Side Park to finish up their session just as the sun was setting.

Leigh + Adam | Downtown Urbana engagement photography

I think Leigh + Adam set a new record at Holly Birch Photography. Their engagement session was a scant THREE days prior to their wedding. Better late than never, I always say. :) Seriously, though, these two are so great. I haven't known them for very long, but what time I have spent with them I thoroughly enjoyed, including their wedding this past Sunday (which I will post later this week). And now that I know them, I am sad that they are moving away this summer! I wish you guys the very best of luck in your new future together! We started their session at the Urbana Free Library, and then meandered around downtown Urbana for a while. TONS of great light to work with, and I discovered a few new cool spots! This man LOVES this woman. Adorable! Isn't downtown Urbana just so cute? So happy to have a studio here. I wish this one was a tad bit more in focus, but I still love it!
