Abby + Teddy's Dreamy Bluff Spring Engagement Session | Elgin, IL

When I pulled up next to them in the parking lot with my windows down and Teddy said “is that Bon Iver?” I knew we were in for a good session. We trekked into the Bluff Spring Nature Preserve during glow hour and the weather was that perfect taste of early fall we (by we I mean… me) have been longing for after a hot, hot summer. (Side note: i never knew this place existed until I googled “wild flower fields near me” while searching for the perfect spot in the suburbs for this shoot and it’s… 15 minutes from my house. Facepalm.) We listened to, you guessed it, Bon Iver and some other romantic portrait jams while I documented the love between these two, and if I said “sooo cute” while shooting once I said it 100 times. Abby is an absolute stunner and it’s so obvious how much Teddy adores her. Their love + soft summer light glowing on them made for a gallery of so many favorites that I had to share some of them here. I cannot wait to shoot their wedding next May!
