Nick Wernsman and Chelsea Bradley are tying the knot next September and we had the honor of shooting their engagement session this Fall in prep for the big day! These two are so incredibly sweet and are SO photogenic! During their session we shot in Nick’s parents’ backyard (gorgeous!) at their home in Centralia, IL, visited Schwartz Orchard, and our final stop was Nick’s workplace, Riechmann Brothers for some fun tractor photos at sunset. Each location brought new colors, lighting, and ideas into play (which was probably why Chelsea and Nick had such a hard time narrowing down their favorites)! We always allow our clients to bring along a couple outfit options, too, and these two had such great taste in wardrobe! My favorite was Chelsea’s dress & boots… who doesn’t love boots and scarfs in the Fall?
The best part about shooting an engagement session is that we get to know our couples during this time. Chelsea and Nick both became so comfortable with the camera and we were able to capture genuine smiles and personality. These two are so much fun and I’m so thankful they chose us to photograph these special moments in their lives!
