With weather like we’ve been having here in Illinois this February, it’s no wonder we have been able to schedule a few engagement shoots with our amazing couples lately! And oh my goodness, y’all… this engagement session at Illinois State University and a few of our favorite spots throughout Normal is truly one for the books.
As soon as Morgan inquired with us a few months ago about their upcoming December wedding, we just KNEW these two would be the perfect addition to the Caitlin and Luke family! We immediately started planning a date to meet up for their engagement photos and exchanged so many sweet emails as we planned out every last detail.
It initially looked like Saturday was going to be super cloudy, muddy and even a little bit rainy. But, as you can see, our lovely Illinois weather changed completely… and we enjoyed some of the most perfect weather I can ever remember having in Illinois in February! We took full advantage of this gorgeous Saturday evening for Morgan and Ryan’s engagement shoot.
From the perfect outfits Morgan selected (I seriously want the boots she’s wearing at the first location!) to the totally on point hair and makeup she had done for this session and from stopping by where Ryan proposed, to the gorgeous sunset light we had, we were in HEAVEN for this engagement session! Plus, when a couple is as joyfully in love as these two, they make our job pretty dang easy ???? (Just scroll on down to the last location, and you’ll see what I mean about that crazy gorgeous golden light! Those images were our FAVORITES!)
Morgan and Ryan, we already feel like we’ve been friends with you two for years! We had an absolute blast hanging out with you two during your engagement session on Saturday, and we cannot wait to send over your full gallery of images SOON! December better get here quickly… but until then, soak up every single moment of being engaged and enjoy a little preview into your stunning session! It was nearly impossible to narrow down our favorites. ????
Caitlin and Luke
Morgan, you are SO rocking this! Love!!
I’m serious… I want her boots!!
Obsessed with this one!
Dodging frisbees was totally worth this set of images…!
We love that these two brought along some sentimental items to incorporate into their ring shots! Did Luke kill it or what?!
That ring, though… oh my stars!
Another favorite… too precious!
This light, y’all!!! And their JOY. We love it.
Way too many favorites from this gorgeous spot!
