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.
I met Leslie + Ryan at one of my favorite fall destinations: Dogtown. It’s a secret little spot I just so happen to have special permission to use, and the minute those leaves start to turn, I set my sights for it!
Leslie had texted a few days before their session wanting to confirm outfit choices. She wasn’t sure about them but once I took a look at those perfect fall colors, she was on board! The session was great, we had amazing sunlight and the trees were just starting to turn into those pretty fall colors we all know and love. I love engagement sessions because they’re usually the first time I’m teaching a couple a handful of my “signature” poses. These two made “The Temple Sniff” look soooo good. 😍
I cannot wait until next August when these two tie the knot!
“We were in the same class together, so we have always known each other, we dated for a few months 7th grade year of Jr. High and I had broken it off because I thought Ryan and I were better off friends…little did I know a few years later as Juniors in High School, we would give it a second try and it stuck that time! We went through the struggles of college together, and a long-distance relationship while Ryan was in Texas for Lineman School, but boy was it all worth it! We moved in together shortly after Ryan moved back home from school and started our life together!” – Leslie
