I traveled to Plano, IL recently to photograph Nicole and Mitch’s engagement session.
They’ll be getting married this July, and I absolutely cannot wait for the day to come.
We started near an abandoned barn with so many great backdrops…
…like this.
I was in heaven!!
And it looks like Nicole and Mitch were having a great time, too.
This couple is full of laughs and fun… they’re truly made for each other!
I mean, it’s like this spot was made just for me to take pictures. I love it!
Mitch gave his fiancé a piggyback ride into the nearby timber.
A quick picture on a fallen tree…
…and we headed into town. Notice the “Welcome to Smallville” logo under the mural. This is the town where they filmed part of the recent “Superman” movie!
We ended up at the site where their ceremony will take place. Mitch’s parents own this beautiful property, and I can’t think of a more perfect place to get married.
Then we had some company! Our group was joined by Nicole and Mitch’s son, who was more than ready for his share of pictures!
Look at that smile… such a happy guy.
He was ready to climb up on the fence and give the camera his all.
He did such a good job taking pictures that he got some time to play on the nearby playground.
I think the twisty slide was one of his favorites.
Whew! What a day!
I’ll see you again in a few months for your wedding, Nicole and Mitch! I’m counting the days!!
