I thought planning this engagement session was going to be difficult since Grant is in Australia for work. But these two have been great at planning and arranging for this session to happen around a trip home. This also was pretty cool because they’re not seeing each other too much right now. Which means they were still full of love and all the genuine smiles since their time together is limited. It all felt natural, all the prompts, the hugs, the spinning, the laughs, it was all real. Of course that makes it so much easier on me and allows me to deliver an over packed gallery filled with so many awesome images!
We hit some of my favorite local spots during their engagement session in Kankakee. And I loved that we were able to get such a variety in their images. From urban to sunset in the field. I love sessions that give me flexibility like this to work all angles.
I’ve known Grant and Kayla for a little while through some mutual friends and they actually live right down the street from me. So getting to take part in their story is a little extra special for me. For one, I can just walk down the street to chat and catch up on any details. And two, we get to see each other outside of their wedding to dos and enjoy life amongst friends.
So a little about Kayla and Grant. You know how sometimes you go out and maybe you give someone the wrong number on purpose? Well what about when you give the wrong number on accident? haha. If it wasn’t for Kaylas persistence to go back to facebook messenger, who knows what would have happened to this love story. After a year of friendship and other relationships, they finally took the step and had their first date and first kiss at a Brantley Gilbert concert. Super cute little story, I love when relationships find their way back to where they were meant to be and end in a happy ever after!
Now these two love birds will spend the next 10 months planning their dream wedding day at Meyer’s Castle. It’s going to be PERFECT!
