Fun Backyard Engagement Session

This was such a fun backyard engagement session!! Tommy and Taylor are so stunning and their family owned property was the perfect sentimental backdrop for the session! Taylor’s engagement session dress was so flowy and gorgeous – we can hardly wait to see her wedding gown!!!

We are SO excited for Tommy and Taylor’s wedding day! These two are going to be married tomorrow (October 13th) at A Fair Barn in Salem, IL and our team is doing both photo AND film for them (they are getting a super sweet deal for booking both with us, too!) Taylor shared a little bit about their love story with us and we are excited to share it with all of you! The two of them met at Bill’s grocery store in Bluford, IL – Taylor was getting a soda and Tommy was there getting a soda as well. Their mutual friends set the two of them up and clearly that worked out amazingly for the two of them!! Tommy proposed while they were on the beach in Dauphin Island, Alabama! They were taking pictures at sunset and Tommy dropped down to one knee and surprised Taylor!
