Ava & David: She Said Yes!

Springfield, IL

Engagement sessions are not just your regular photo session...or at least, they shouldn't be.  An engagement session should be an opportunity to chronicle your relationship up to that point...how you are as a couple, the places you love to go, and the things you like to do together.

Otherwise, they are just pretty pictures. 

They're nice, and you need some...but if they don't tell a story, they aren't going to mean anything 10...20...50 years from now!  This Sunday, I met with Ava and David, and we did just that.  They told me about their relationship, and we came up with an AMAZING session plan.  

You won't believe the last place we ended up last!

First, we went to Olive Garden.  Olive Garden is where they spent their first official date, as well as many dates after.  The manager was very friendly and accommodating, so shout out to her!  We are so appreciative for all their help.

We headed over to Washington Park in Springfield.  We took some gorgeous photos, and also some fun ones!  Washington Park is Ava and David's park of choice for Pokemon Go dates!  We couldn't leave that out. ;)

We ended at Lincoln Land Community College in the Chem lab.  Why?  Because these two got to know each other one semester over some chemical reactions, where they shared 9 credit hours as lab partners!  They quite literally "have good chemistry"
