Carley & Austin | Love Story | Colchester, IL

We are SO excited to be sharing Carley & Austin’s engagement session with you today! (I know Carley is equally as excited!) Where do I start!?!? There is so much I could talk about from their session. We got to adventure around the beautiful property where they will have their ceremony, and it got us so excited for their big day! There are so many beautiful spots for photos. The possibilities are endless! And of course we can’t forget about their puppy, Bo and his guest appearance! Though he wasn’t too sure about being a model he sat marvelously for a treat for a few photos! Way to go Bo! And lastly, and probably most special to us is how honored we are that they chose us to document this special time for them. As many of you probably know, Carley’s mom Carmen is a very talented photographer, but of course she wants to be present on Carley’s day not busy being the photographer, so that is where we come in. We are so honored that she has chosen to trust us with capturing her day. We know how hard it is to choose someone when you’re a photographer yourself! (I still remember how hard it was choosing my wedding photographer several years ago!) So enough waiting, here are some of our favorites from their session! Enjoy!
