Ryan + Stephanie | Du Quoin, IL Engagement Session

Posted in: Uncategorized

I want to introduce you all to an amazing couple. Everyone… meet Ryan and Stephanie. They are from Popular Bluff, MO and they made the long drive to Du Quoin, IL for their engagement session. They didn’t just make the drive here for their engagement session though, they came to visit family. Ryan has a sister named Heather and she just married my cousin, DJ, this year! That’s how I met Ryan and his fiancĂ©’ Stephanie. It wasn’t too long after Heather and DJ’s wedding that I got an email from Stephanie saying that she and Ryan wanted me to shoot their big day. Since then, Stephanie and I have been discussing wedding details and settings for the e-session. She mentioned that she and Ryan would just come my way and visit family and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I got to thinking about places that would have lots of options, so I took them to Du Quoin. I just love that town. It has a great mix of country and urban settings.

At first they were wearing really nice clothes and looking all spiffy and then then went a little more casual and comfy. I loved that they wanted to incorporate St. Louis Cardinals shirts since they were playing in the World Series at the time (bummer that they lost). They have such great style and they are so darn cute and it seemed like every picture I took I kept saying “oh man, this is my favorite.” I had so much fun and I’m so excited to show you these pictures. 
Happy Thursday everyone! Only 1 more day till the weekend!!!

Look at that blling!

Stepanie… you are GORGEOUS!

So in love with this picture!
