Laura & Ryan | Love Story

Laura is originally from the area, while Ryan is from Chicago.  They met while attending ISU.  They now live in the Chicago suburbs and were making a special trip down for their engagement session.  It was clear skies all morning and then the clouds started rolling in,  rain was added to the forecast.  We all started to stress a little, but thankfully it turned out to be a beautiful evening.  The sun was shining and we had perfect weather for their session!  They are such a fun couple, not to mention that they didn’t even really need our help with posing…they’re naturals.  Just as we were finishing up clouds rolled in and within minutes after we ended the forecast held true and the rain started.  We couldn’t have timed it better!
Here are a few of our favorites from our session with Laura and Ryan.  We are looking forward to their Summer 2018 wedding!
