This engagement session for Michele and Luke was so nasty. The weather, that is. Rainy, snowy and cooooold. Not gonna lie, I was just a tad stressed to find indoor locations in Springfield to capture their love perfectly. I am so glad I found the locations I did.
We started the day off with drinks at a local brewery, Obed and Isaac's downtown Springfield. If you follow me on social media, you know that is one of Tom and I's favorite places. I mean, our dog is named after that place.
From there we began the photoshoot at a local botanical garden. This was my first time going there and had no idea what I would be walking in to. I had only heard of great things about the place. I freaking loved it and even told the front desk girl that I'd be back to read a book there. But it was too muggy for that.
To keep the indoor feel going, we shot upstairs of Anvil & Forge's Brewing and Distilling downtown Springfield. The wear-house atmosphere was so cool and unique for Michele & Luke. Not to mention, the owners were so great for letting us upstairs! Can't wait for their business to open soon!
During the shoot, Michele told me that her and Luke actually met in a plant molecular biology class in undergrad (too smart for me). That made my heart so freaking happy. To have captured their love and relationship in a garden when that is actually the symbol of their unity.
Love is a crazy thang. And I love capturing it. And chasing it.
