Kinsey + Cody: Ottawa, Illinois

Quick stop in Ottawa, Illinois a few weeks ago to capture engagement portraits for Kinsey and Cody. Portraits outside in the dead of winter can be a challenge. I look for more architecture to incorporate into the photos, and lucky for me Ottawa’s downtown is filled with fascinating historical structures.

The adorable young couple made it quite easy for me to capture their love. I didn’t have to give much direction in asking them to be affectionate, allowing me to have a very easy going smooth session with so many great photographs to choose from.

My favorites are their sexy-serious looks especially in the black and white. I am excited to be able to capture them again, next time in Utica, Illinois for their summer wedding this year.
