Lexi & Ben's Engagement

My little brother got married last year! On his wedding day, I was lucky enough to be a part of his wedding as his best man. It's a very rare occasion for me to attend a wedding! Though I had a different role on their big day, I was so happy to be able to do their engagement photos. We did their session up in our hometown of Ottawa, IL on the property where Lexi and Ben were building their future home. Here are some of my favorite photos:

Libby & David's Central West End Engagement

We started out Libby & David's engagement session with a drink at the Gamlin Whiskey House. The CWE was the perfect place to start for this stylish couple. I love the combination of David's well-cut suit and the bold print of Libby's dress, and the result is so cosmopolitan and chic. These two make walking across the road look like it should be a magazine cover. We headed over to Forest Park for a more casual outfit, where we caught some beautiful light. Libby and David were so easy to work with and such a fun couple. It couldn't be clearer that these two make a great match, and if the engagement session is any indication, their wedding is sure to be a show-stopper!

Shannon & Scott's Oak Knoll Park Engagement

What a perfect summer engagement session! I love the blooming flowers and gorgeous greenery. Shannon and Scott were amazing to work with! They are such a happy couple - so easy to work with and so natural with each other. One of my favorite things about this shoot was how much Shannon and Scott smiled when they looked at each other. Can't wait for their October wedding that is just around the corner!

Erin & Brad's Contemporary Art Museum Engagement

This engagement shoot was one of our favorites! In addition to being really, ridiculously good-looking and stylish, Erin and Brad are two of our very dear friends. Erin is a very talented wedding photographer herself, and Brad is a respiratory therapist. It's a huge honor to be asked by another photographer to photograph their day, and we couldn't be happier to be a part of their November wedding. For the engagement session, Erin wore a stunning gown from Rent the Runway and she carried a lovely bouquet made by Melinda of Les Bouquets. Brad was positively dapper in his fitted navy suit. The minimalist and modern architecture of the Contemporary Art Museum was a perfect backdrop for this session, and we finished up with some photos at Tower Grove Park. We loved every inch of this session, and if this was just the engagement session, hold on to your hats for the wedding!
