Jessica & Aaron | Macomb, IL

One of my all time favorite times of the year for pictures is the short window of time that the Magnolia trees are blooming. And this year with the late April snow we got I almost lost hope that Magnolia pictures were going to get to happen this year. But thankfully they survived the snow and were still pretty! (for a much shorter amount of time than usual but none the less still pretty!) These trees were at their peak for Aaron and Jessica’s engagement session and I couldn’t have loved it more. Not to mention the colors complimented their outfits perfectly.  It made my photographer heart so happy. But you know what else makes my photographer heart happy, these TWO! They are the sweetest and most fun couple to work with. They were up for anything, so easy going and hung with us even though the wind tried to stop our session. We absolutely love these two and are so excited to get to know them this year and can’t wait for their 2020 wedding. Here are a few of our favorites from their spring engagement session. Enjoy!
