Riley & Anthony | Love Story

When your cousin asks you to be their wedding photographer of course the answer is YES! I am so happy that Riley asked us to be a part of their wedding.  She recently started PT school and her schedule is CRAZY, so finding a time to do engagement pictures was a bit challenging. But we finally found a date that worked and luckily the weather was perfect!  (Because seriously this weather lately is ridiculous, one day its unseasonably hot then we will get the occasional beautiful fall day and then the next day its a rainy mess. I guess that’s Illinois for ya)
We met up at our grandma’s house and used pasture all around her house and a local state park, which we called “grandpa’s park” when we were growing up because it was so close to my grandparent’s house.  What better place to have your engagement pictures than a family farm am I right??? It was an absolute honor to capture these photos for Riley and Anthony and I am looking forward to their June wedding. Here are a few of my MANY favorites.
