Terry & Mike's engagement session included a few "first's." First engagement session of 2017, first session I've done at Starved Rock State Park, and the first same sex engagement session I've ever photographed. They were an absolute joy to work with. Starved Rock means a great deal to them, so I was happy accommodate. I vacationed there growing up, so I remember how beautiful and unique the landscape is. They were also incredibly generous to book a hotel room at the lodge for my wife and I. It was awesome to have a quick getaway before the busy wedding season. As you can tell from the photo above, the weather wasn't exactly cooperating. As a professional photographer, you have to roll with the punches, and make the best out of any situation. I will say what helps more than anything else, is a client who does the same. Terry & Mike were positive, flexible and open to ideas (matching Burberry outfits weren't a bad idea either). I sincerely appreciated them having faith in me. Looking forward to their wedding this fall!
