Dylan + Sydney Starved Rock Engagement Session

I am slowly but surely catching up on blogging! I love to blog so that is never the issue. Right before we went to Italy, I had about 4 or 5 sessions I wrapped up and couldn’t blog all at once. So if you are waiting to see your session up here, no worries it is coming soon!!

We are about 5 months away from Dylan and Sydeny’s wedding in Iowa and I am SO excited :D Dylan is one of the best people I have had the privilege to call a friend. He has such a big heart, is so goofy, was always there for me in high school and college, and just a blast to hang out with. Dylan and I only went to University of Iowa for a semester…while I didn’t continue going there I loved my time with him. We had so many adventures! Mostly eating burritos. And I am beyond happy that he found someone who is equally fun, adorable, and just as smitten with him and he is with her.

I got to meet Sydney the summer before they got engaged at another’s friends’ wedding I was shooting. They were in the lobby when we checked in to the hotel. Watching them interact the whole wedding was just about the sweetest thing and I knew they would be getting engaged soon!

For their engagement session, we ran around Starved Rock! Man oh man does Starved Rock’s stairs remind you how out of shape you are haha I was trying to keep my cool the whole time we were exploring and made it back to my car and chugged some water. Session learned, when it is September and in the 8-’s maybe don’t wear a jean jacket and not bring water to your shoot ;) Regardless, we had an awesome time catching up and talking details of their day.

I cannot wait to spend the week celebrating with you guys in a few months!!
