I said it during, after, and still now.
These two high school sweethearts are the most adorable duo and one of the best couples I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. 🙂
It’s the first official day of winter, gloomy and chilly and all you want to do is stay in bed covered up and watch movies.
Not with these two! I was smiling and laughing the entire 2 hours we were outside…yes, 2 hours! I had so much fun walking around Cantigny with them!
BECCA + MATT
* * * * * * * * * *
These first few pictures : only minutes in and after Becca told me she was nervous.
How cute are they??? Complete naturals. <3
I loved the fact that they had matching coats on.
They reminded me of a cool/hip New York couple. 😉
Matt did a wonderful job picking out Becca’s ring.
(He actually checked out her Pinterest page for reference!) 😉
Such a beautiful couple.
I cannot say that enough about you two. 🙂
They make a heart shape!
I love this walkway in Cantigny.
I always reference the Forest Gump driveway when we walk on it. 😉
A great thing about pictures right before Christmas?
Christmas decor of course!
(One of my favorite things to photograph : candid in-between moments.)
And then, there’s the tongue. It was a bit chilly and windy out so smiling a lot can dry out your mouth…
…hence Becca’s tongue making it’s photography debut. lol! 😉
Hello automatic Christmas card pictures! <3
One of their Facebook SNEAK PEEK’s.
This is all them. 🙂 They are so sweet with one another.
Side note : If ever visiting Cantigny, go check out this reflection pond area.
For one, when the water is actually there, it’s gorgeous! (water was already removed for winter…bah!)
2nd, right at the bottom of the stairs is a spot where you can stand and yell and hear your echo. It’s pretty cool and so I made them try.
Love this picture!
My directions don’t always make sense to others.
They sound good in my head, but somehow get lost in translation…(side bar : great movie, check it out!)
However, if it makes you smile like this, I’m doing something right, right?
Let’s have a dance, shall we?
LOVE this picture!!!
They look so happy!
Becca, you are absolutely beautiful, I cannot wait to see you as a bride next June!
Winter, shminter. Cantigny was still gorgeous all around.
A little cozy snuggle under this very large Christmas tree. 😉
The things I make my couples do…
I always promise it’s worth it for pictures though.
<3 <3 <3
(This was right around when Becca spotted something, looked over my shoulder and freaked me out.)
Laughing at me for freaking out I suppose. lol! 😉
What did she see? A bunch of turkey’s running.
No joke! Real turkey’s.
So naturally we followed them.
Who doesn’t want a picture with Turkey’s in the background?
Then we spotted what I called a real Christmas tree because it looked red and green.
Humor me, would ya? 😉
No direction needed for these two, they are just that much in love.
(Or it’s cold. Either way, it works.)
Saw this cool spot…
