Nick and Ariel Rockford Arboretum Bridal Session

Nick and Ariel are some of our dearest friends. They got married in July but wanted to do another session again. Which is absolutely love. Now I think everyone should do this. It was more laid back, we got to choose what time so the lighting was gorgeous, and we just had an awesome time. When they got married Lex was one of Nick's groomsmen and I was their videographer. I cannot wait to get their video back to them. Working for friends has honestly been the best because the people I love are in the photos and videos. Its something special for me to look back at too!

We started off our Saturday by going to an apple orchard. We got fudge and drank apple cider. Then we went to a winery and got wine slushies. Which are AMAZING but the way. Get one. And then finished the night off with these awesome photos and tacos. Best Saturday ever? I think so.

I have just loved being able to capture these moments for Nick and Ariel over the last year. We shot their proposal in Chicago, then did a mini engagement session at Chicago Botanic Gardens, videoed their wedding, and now this. I can't wait to keep capturing these beautiful memories for you two. Congrats on almost 3 months of being married <3
