An end-of-summer engagement session in Peoria, Illinois. These two are tying the knot in just a few weeks and I can’t wait!
This was one of my favorite summer engagements last year and these images so easily take me back to all of the excitement in planning we shared over coffee at Zion. Little did we know what was in store for this year.
Peter and Lydia are my only couple in all of spring and early summer to keep their date and get married as planned (minus the plans) and my heart is so h a p p y I still get to be their photographer.
Disclaimer: I 5000% understand why so many couples are choosing to postpone and in those cases it has been for the better, but Peter and Lydia are just ready to start their life as a married couple wherever, however is possible and I can’t blame them. My husband and I were the exact same way which is why we also chose an intimate wedding (under different circumstances, of course).
They are still planning on a big reception to celebrate next year, but my goodness, stay tuned for the charming wedding coming up in a few weeks as these two become Mr. and Mrs.
Until then, enjoy these sweet summer engagement photos from a hot Midwest day.
