Autumn + Shane | Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer

Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer – After booking their October 2014 wedding with me last summer, I was so excited to get together with them for their engagement session! We met for their initial consultation at Applebee’s, and really bonded over dinner + drinks 🙂 And, when Autumn told me that they would like to have their engagement session held at Mt. Vernon’s Cedarhurst Center for the Arts museum. If you live anywhere near it, you should visit this place; it’s amazing! It has really intricate, interesting exhibits inside the museum itself, and several sculptures located outside, in the lush, green, wooded lawn. Not only that, shooting there was a photographer’s dream 🙂 Everywhere you looked was gorgeous scenery. Bonus: We had amazing weather that day! It was so warm and sunny, which is a rare treat this Spring.

Thank you Autumn + Shane for choosing me to capture the two of you during one of the most important + cherished time of your lives!
