Hi sweet friends!! We hope you all have had such a wonderful week so far and that you’re staying warm! It got COLD here in Illinois all of a sudden, my goodness! Today, we’re so thrilled to get to share another beautiful fall engagement session at Allerton Park and Retreat Center that our fantastic team members photographed recently… and you guys are going to just LOVE this one- oh my goodness! Yay!

Although Hayley & Hank are the ones who will get to shoot Jessica & Nick’s beautiful wedding day in May of 2020, Luke and I have had the opportunity to get to know these two throughout the past few months due to plenty of chatting via email, and gosh, are they just the SWEETEST!!! They absolutely rocked their engagement session (aren’t their outfits gorgeous?!) and we are so thrilled to be sharing this with you all today!!

Their engagement session was SUCH a stunner… and Luke and I just love all the gorgeous fall colors in this shoot! Allerton in the fall is just the BEST! They sure lucked out with a gorgeous night for their session, didn’t they? Love squeezing in all the sessions we can before the beautiful leaves go away!

We adored what Hayley had to say on their Instagram sneak peek about their time getting to know Jessica and Nick at their engagement session… just take a peek at this sweetness:

“We had a BEAUTIFUL fall session with Jessica and Nick! They both work at the University of Illinois, so we agreed to meet up at Allerton Park, and let me just say, the fall leaves & these two made for some gorgeous photos! Jessica and Nick are both so fun and easygoing, so we had a blast walking through the park and chatting all about rock climbing, fall things, and wedding plans. Also, their engagement session date was Jessica’s birthday, so what a fun way to celebrate by getting engagement photos done, right?! ❤️🙌🏻 We so enjoyed our time with both of you guys and can’t wait for your wedding next year!!! ☺️” ⁣

Yay!! Jessica and Nick, we know just from talking with Hayley and Hank that you four had the BEST time at your engagement session, and our entire team hopes you just ADORE this little peek into your session with Hayley and Hank!! We know we’re obsessed, for sure. 

Xoxo!!
The Caitlin & Luke Team
