Abra was a bridesmaid in a wedding I did several years ago, and now I am looking forward to photographing her wedding to Jeremiah next June! I love getting the opportunity to first shoot an engagement session with my wedding clients because it gives us the chance to work together and "practice" before the big day. (Not that they really needed it, these two did amazing!) With a casual and simple yet intimate style in mind, we headed to the river and Heritage Canyon in Fulton, Illinois. The scenery is beautiful and there are so many great natural backdrops there. We had no trouble finding plenty of lovely areas for the photo shoot...even on a bit of a time crunch as the locals were setting up for a festival later in the day! Abra was no newbie to the Canyon. She shared, "As a Wierenga it was a right of passage to be comfortable within the canyon. We (my siblings and I) took mostly the roads less traveled and made our own tours." We all agreed it was the perfect spot for their engagement photos. I'm excited to share their sneak peek!
