I was thrilled to be asked to take my good friend Rebekah and her handsome fiance’s engagement pictures. The morning of the shoot had us worried as it started out horribly chilly, and rainy… but alas! The sky opened up and gave us gorgeous sunshine and warm temperatures just for the time we needed it. So we started our photographical adventure at Salem Horse Ranch, where Andrew and Bekah met and their love story began. From there we drove up to Starved Rock (the location of their first date!) and hiked through the colorful autumn leaves along trickling streams. At the end of the shoot we brought out the… HORSES! Such beautiful creatures they are, I knew we were in for some stunning photographs. And if I can say so myself… they are indeed a wonderful reflection of this couples pure and true love.
