I always enjoy getting the chance to check out a new photography location so I was really looking forward to Emily and Alex’s Des Plaines River engagement session. They decided on a spot tucked away on the Des Plaines River trail, a place near Alex’s work where he sometimes comes to enjoy a little nature during his lunch break.
Oftentimes couples who have already send out invitations and save-the-dates just want to get a little practice in front of the camera, as was the case with Emily and Alex. It’s a great way to get to see how we’ll work together and get to know each other’s personalities a bit more before the wedding. We shot the engagement session just a few weeks before their wedding so it was important to me to make sure got some great photos of them and turn them around quickly so they could send me any feedback before the big day.
I really love the romantic feel of the images and can’t wait to share their wedding soon!
