I had NO time for post-Christmas blues, because the day after Christmas, I made my way to Charleston, IL for Ethan and Rebecca's engagement session! For some reason, mother nature did not want to give us cold and snow for the holidays, which made our outdoor session SO AMAZING! Rebecca and Ethan reached out to me back when I first started this business, but they had just moved to Texas, and were unsure if they would be back before their wedding to get together. Lucky for me (and obviously their families ;)), they came home for the holidays, and I got to spend some time getting to know them better! And honestly, that just made me SO MUCH more excited for their wedding this spring!
We started our session at Lake Charleston, which is where Ethan proposed, and they were ACTUALLY killing me with their love, energy, and edgy leather jackets! What's even sweeter is that the whole time, they were either reminiscing on the proposal, laughing together, and being just downright adorable, which is literally a DREAM situation for a photographer! We moved over to Fox Ridge State Park, which is where they are getting MARRIED! Between this insanely sweet pair, and all the sentimental locations, I was a DANG MESS. There is a true sense of love and joy in Ethan and Rebecca.. You can see it in the way they look at each other. You can feel it in their presence. As completely obsessed with these images as I am, they hardly do justice to the beautiful story they have shared. LET'S GET YOU TWO MARRIED ALREADY DANG!!!
