Samantha & Derek : DeKalb, IL Engagement Session

Sam and Derek were so cool to drive out to meet me for an early morning engagement session last week!! Sam is a huge Taylor Swift fan, so she had the idea to have Derek bring his guitar along to get some Taloresque pictures. I love the unique look it brought to their session!! 

Taylor ain't got nothin' on you, Sam.  You're beautiful!!
I had a really hard time choosing my favorite from this session, but this one is definitely up there!
I think this one is my favorite.
The cover for their first album, perhaps??

What you don't see in this picture were about a BAZILLION flies I edited out!!  It was borderline Biblical.  Sam and Derek were awesome! I was the one freaking out every time one flew into my head, which was every other second!
Wait, this one is my favorite!!
Alright, THIS one is my favorite!! ;)
Congrats and good luck to you guys on your wedding next month!!!!  It was a pleasure to meet you, and an honor to photograph you!!
