Olivia & Brayden | Carrollton, Illinois Family Farm Engagement Photographer

Olivia and Brayden’s engagement session was so special. I got to photograph them on the property where they will be holding their wedding ceremony and eventually one day building their dream home! These two fit so perfectly together, and I just loved getting to know them both!

Olivia and Brayden have known each other since kindergarten. They grew up in a small town where everyone knows everyone. But it was not until about a year after high school graduation that the sparks really flew and they fell for each other fast. They both really enjoy their time together outdoors, riding dirtbikes, Olivia gardening, Brayden working on his truck and their most recent project, building the shed that sits on their property. It was the perfect backdrop for Brayden’s proposal to Olivia one Sunday morning after church. He invited their parents out to show them the new shed and got down on one knee to ask Olivia to marry him, of course she said YES!

The day of Brayden and Olivia’s session was FREEZING. We had just been hit with a few inches of snow and it was only melted down a little allowing us to get their session in. Olivia owns a small online clothing boutique, so I knew she was going to have such cute outfits! She did an amazing job braving the cold for their photos. I know I couldn’t feel my feet all bundled up in shoes so I can’t imagine how long it took her feet to thaw out! They really were both troopers because you can’t tell one bit in their photos how cold they were!

I had such a great time hanging out with Olivia and Brayden and I cannot wait to head back to their property next summer for their wedding day!
