Kevin + Amanda {Engagement}

It had never happened to me before...
When I have that initial meeting with a potential client of mine, it feels a lot like a blind date.  You've talked with them over e-mail, exchanged some information about ourselves...but usually, my clients know what I look like but I don't know who I'm looking for.  As Kevin + Amanda (and her sister who is her wedding coordinator! Go her!!!) came in, I had to do a double take as I realized I knew Amanda!!  It was such a fun surprise! She was a roommate of a friend of mine years ago, but I hadn't kept in touch with Amanda.
It was so fun to get to catch up and meet Kevin...and see that they had both found such a great match! Kevin is very "computer smart" as he was so sweet and nodded along while I tried to explain how their images would be "hosted in a cloud"! Haha...I ended up having him explain it to me...thanks, Kevin! :) 
We shot around a beautiful park and some cute shops in Peoria...what a fun afternoon! It not only makes me excited for their wedding, but also makes me feel at ease about it because Kevin and Amanda are so easy to work with!


I had to take a picture of this walking stick that I thought was being provided by the park! Haha! I'm obvioulsy in wedding mode...I was thinking of it as a party favor for the visitors.  We quickly decided that we think a hiker had just left it there. :)
 Gorgeous...

 I love how much they just really like eachother...
 I was kinda taken with this bench!! And the couple on it. :)
This was one of those, "Oh Kevin! Do that again!" moments...they always try to sneak those by me as if I'm not going to see it and make them do it for me over and over again. :)



 I love this one...probably one of my favorites from the day.



 Kevin + Amanda...
During our shoot, I felt like we were friends hanging out and I happened to bring a camera along! That's a great feeling to have (for me!). Your relationship is one of those that makes marriage look fun...because you laugh at each other so quickly, compliment easily, and love fully.  It's an honor to be an observer of that.  I'm excited for your big day!
