Tom & Emily | Love Story

Tom & Emily are both from the Alton, IL area and first saw our work when we traveled to Alton last fall for Matt & Kortney’s wedding.  When Emily contacted us we were flattered that she loved us enough that she wanted us to travel to Alton to do their wedding. Of course we said yes! And we can’t wait to head south again this fall for their wedding!
Tom & Emily made the 2 and a half hour drive up to Macomb for their engagement session.  Both of them attended WIU so they liked the idea of doing their engagement session in Macomb.  We even did a few on campus for old times sake. With all the rain we have been having we were all a little worried about what the weather was going to be like, but they had the most GORGEOUS day!
Tom & Emily are so easy going and were a blast to work with!  Not to mention they were total naturals in front of the camera.  We can’t wait for their wedding day this fall.  Here are just a few of our favorites from their engagement session.
