Callie & Ryan | Athens, IL Family Farm Engagement Photographer

I cannot stop gushing over this sweet couple! Callie and Ryan are so adorably in love and it shines through their engagement photos. Callie and I have known each other through mutual friends for many years. I had heard so many stories about this Ryan guy who was so in love with Callie and making her so happy that I was just so excited to meet him! Ryan asked Callie to marry him in their candle-lit home one evening after coming home from a quiet dinner. I was ecstatic when Callie reached out to me about photographing their wedding!

Meeting up with these two for their engagement session was so much fun. We had the perfect fall evening along the river and Callie’s family farm was the perfect setting for their photos.  I really enjoyed getting to know Callie and Ryan a little more and capturing all the sweet laughs Ryan could get out of Callie. Ryan drove us around in his truck to all the perfect spots – including a really cool bridge where ironically, Dustin took me to see on one of our first dates! I loved this connection to these two as I had always wanted to photograph a couple on this bridge! We caught the sun set (along with countless deer) along the river bottoms of the property and ended the session with some perfect golden hour light. We could not have asked for a more perfect evening! I am so excite for Callie and Ryan’s wedding next fall!
