Finishing off this week with my last engagement shoot from over the weekend! 🙂 Claire + Aaron are the best, I loved getting to spend time with them Sunday evening! They suggested this location out in Lexington and I will FOR SURE be going back! It was so pretty! I loved it. The sun was TO DIE FOR! Aaron actually grew up in Lexington so he knew the area well! He actually pointed out a tree he’s nearly certain he planted as a kid on Earth Day one year in the field we were in!
One thing you may notice about this shoot is there are few and far between when it comes to serious pictures, but let me tell you something about Claire, she is full of SO much JOY, and she is absolutely beautiful, especially when she smiles! She lights up the room! My sister-in-law, Audra, actually introduced me to Claire over the summer, so we haven’t known each other for that long! Then for her (Audra’s) bachelorette party I got to see Claire again and she had brought up how Audra chose a photographer because Claire had recently gotten engaged! And Audra had mentioned I was a photographer, so Claire and I talked in the Uber as we were driving across Chicago to the restaurant we were getting dinner at!
But back to this engagement shoot, there’s nothing quite like this in Normal, so it was really nice having a change of pack in being in an open field! As we were leaving Claire told me, “I didn’t really know what I was looking for… but this was it!” Which makes me laugh – because I was looking for something like this, it’s something totally unlike where I typically shoot at.
Claire + Aaron are just so crazy about each other, it’s awesome. Watching them interact, and interacting with them has been so fun over the past few times we’ve met up, they’re just a fun couple! Anyway, I’ll stop rambling! Check out this adorable shoot!
The sun was so dreamy!
