Becky & Dave : Moneka, IL Engagement Session

I photographed Becky and Dave back at the beginning of December on a bitterly cold yet sunny day.  I usually shoot sessions by myself, but Seth wanted to hone his skill more to better prepare for when he second shoots weddings with me, so he came along with!!  It was AMAZING to have my partner in crime with me, especially when he volunteered to run to the Starbucks for some hot beverages for all of us! ;)  

Becky and Dave are getting married in TWO WEEKS!!!!  (AHHHH!)  We had such a great time with them during their engagement shoot that I literally CANNOT wait to see these two tie the knot!!!  One of my favorite things about engagement sessions is being able to talk to couples and get to know them in a low pressure environment, so that by the time their wedding rolls around, we're already friends.  I'm not some stranger wandering around with a camera, and they aren't just some people getting married.  We have a relationship, and I can truly be happy for them as they take the next step together by becoming husband and wife.  I love it!! 
And now, the cuteness that is Becky and Dave. :)

Seth wanted to try his hand at directing Becky and Dave, so he set up and took this shot!  It's one of my favorites from the session!
My perspective.
Another favorite!
