I am a wedding and portrait photographer who keeps things light, fun, and full of energy. I’m based out of Springfield, Illinois however I love traveling all over the midwest and beyond.
inquire about your session!
It feels like forever since I last saw Erin and Vishnu! Our first meeting over coffee was two winters ago when they booked me for their November 2018 wedding. We tried to squeeze in their engagement session last fall, but Erin was starting a new job in the medical field and we couldn’t make it happen. We rescheduled for April of this year, yet when the day arrived….spring had not! So, we pushed it back one more time and the weather at Washington Park in Springfield, Illinois this weekend cooperated! I was so excited to finally get them in front of my camera!
Erin and Vishnu are both incredibly pleasant to talk with and very considerate of each other. We wandered around the Botanical Gardens, where the sun was lovely to play with over top of this sweet pair! When photographing Erin’s ring I had noticed the gorgeous blue/violet hue that gleamed off her finger! I asked Vishnu if there was any significance to his choice of her ring. He said the ring had a Tanzanite stone that he hand picked for Erin. As a geologist, Vishnu wanted her ring to be different and unique like their relationship! Tanzanite is only found in Tanzania, deep in a single mine! One of a kind! Erin loves the color purple and he knew this would be an incredible fit as his token of love.
And speaking of a token of love (or maybe more of a labor of love), Vishnu had one request for their engagement session. He wanted to have a few photos with his beloved yellow Volvo! This car has also been a part of he and Erin’s relationship. With his tinkering and countless hours working on it he wanted to have a little giggle at the idea of Erin waiting for him to complete his fiddling around! It was pretty comical and we had a great time with it! Then to finish up with their e-session we caught the tail end of the sunset and Erin and Vishnu were able to practice their silhouette stances along with a couple of twirls! My favorite way to end my time with a couple!
Thanks again, Erin and Vishnu for an amazing session! I’m very much looking forward to witnessing you two become husband and wife!
