Meet Tina & Greg. I went to high school with Tina; She’s a smart, beautiful young lady and I felt so lucky to capture these sweet memories for her! I remember her graduating top 10 in her class and then she went off to her dream school, The University of Notre Dame where she met her love, Greg. When they asked me to visit Southbend Indiana to capture their love story during my favorite season I nearly jumped out of my seat! The session was featured on Le Magnifigue Blog.
This is where they fell in love, where their story begins. They currently live in Chicago and hadn’t visited the campus since they graduated. So once we got there to begin shooting, all the memories came racing back to them. It was just the sweetest thing to watch those two reminisce in their old days of when they first met and fell in love. We walked the picturesque campus, stopping at all the spots that meant something to them. The photo of them standing on the steps is outside of Tina’s old dorm, where they shared their first magical kiss. They had so much fun reenacting it and sharing all of their stories with me. The delicious autumn weather, changing leaves and stunning architecture completed it all for me. No props needed (except for Flynn who was our magical fall fairy and tossed all the leaves in the air for us, LOL! Side-note: I just loved having my sweetheart on a shoot with me, it was such a fun day with the four us).Pure inspiration from true love, a scenic backdrop, old memories and voilà… a perfect love shoot! We finished off the day with a mini road-trip back to Chicago, then we stuffed our faces with deep dish pizza and I got to play with Tina & Greg’s adorable cat’s. It had to be the most perfect day. I cant even wait for next year you two, the wedding day is going to be a dream and I am so fortunate to be your photographer. XOXO
Oh and PS: I totally kept that yellow leaf and am flattening the life out of it so I can frame it. Hehe! 🙂
