Starved Rock Engagement Shoot: Brooke + Jeff

This was one of those unbelievably gorgeous days in the middle of March at a beautiful State Park in Illinois filled with trails, canyons and waterfalls. Starved Rock is a haven for young couples getting engagement photographs done. My awesome friend, Mike, is a frequent hiker of the area so I recruited him to tag along to find the best spots… and that he did!

I asked Brooke and Jeff to meet me at the park about an hour before sunset. I was able to get some perfect timing shots around the lodge area first. Then, we drove to a location off the main road and hiked a few miles to a small bridge and incredible waterfall that left me jumping with joy.

Brooke and I met a few years back when I did her Senior Portraits. Now, she is in love and planning her wedding with Jeff! Their laid back, easy going and loving personalities towards each other made this shoot so much fun for me.

Next time I see you both will be at your wedding in Utica during the Fall!

Thank You for being your natural selves and making this such an amazing start to my 2016!
