I'm a coffee loving, travel-obsessed, twenty-something based out of Central Illinois. I'm lucky enough to make a living doing what I love - photographing people! I specialize in weddings (destination + local), senior portraits, + boudoir.
When you’ve got 83 blog posts sitting in drafts, it means going wayyyy back in time! So far back in fact, that these two are already married! But it doesn’t mean I didn’t LOVE their engagement session, in fact, it was a fall favorite! So for today’s #throwbackthursday, we’re going to take a look back at it!
Kalie + Jake met me at one of my top-secret-super-exclusive spots (ok, maybe not THAT secret, but still) because it’s one of the best spots to shoot in the fall. This session was the first time I’d met either of them, and we hit it off right away! Kalie is super sweet, and you can just tell Jake adores her – I mean just look at the way he looks at her! 🖤
“Jake is REALLY bad at keeping secrets. I came home from work one day, and there was something just slightly off about him and I couldn’t quite figure it out. He was being really affectionate, explaining how he is excited for us to one day be married- which we have discussed before, but I knew something was different this time. I just had a feeling, and I took one look at him and said “you bought a ring, didn’t you?” He sighed and said “how do you always figure things out. I can never surprise you” and he then showed me the ring! We both laughed, I cried and we celebrated with a nice dinner out.” – Kalie
