I am SO excited to share a little bit about Rachel & Gary’s downtown Decatur, IL engagement session on this Wednesday’s blog!

A lot of people (okay, friends/family) ask me how I meet my couples. Well, Rachel & Gary found me online and contacted me! We met up at Panera Bread in Decatur and talked and it was an immediate connection! Hearing the start of their love story to how Gary proposed to now is just so much fun! I was so glad when I got the email that they agreed we were a great fit and they chose ME to capture their wedding day!

We decided since they live in Indiana that we would do their engagement session while they were home for the holidays in December visiting family here in Decatur. While it was chilly & breezy outside, it was warmer than a typical December day but very sunny! We started out in Central Park and wandered around to Merchant Street, the nearby alley-ways and then over to the Masonic Temple area. We had a TON of fun, lots of laughs, and it got me so much more excited for their big day in May!

So how’s about I share some of my personal favorites from their session?! OK! :)
