I received an email from Staci in January telling me that she was getting married next year, loved my work and was looking to get more information about my services. After things became official, we started discussing her ideas on the engagement session. She had already picked out outfits but we were still trying to narrow down locations. She then realized that she loved the Murphysboro Event Center in Murphysboro, Illinois. It is an older building and has great lighting from all the amazing windows they have. My step sister actually had her wedding reception there so I knew the place well and was able to get ideas quickly since I was familiar with the layout.
When we were finished there, we made our way back to their home to change and get their dog, Juno. She’s adorable and just wait till you see her below. I always love when couples want their fur babies in some of the pictures. Juno rode along with us to family property in the middle of nowhere. It was a very long lane where a railroad used to be years ago. Staci kept saying how she promised they weren’t kidnapping me LOL. We ended up in this beautiful open field and then an area with some big rocks, almost the feel of bluffs that you see in this area.
I had so much fun with Dustin and Staci and I’m glad I got to finally meet them in person. Staci values photography so much and I’m so honored that they picked me to capture their special day. They are getting married in January and I cannot wait!!!!
Those windows are fabulous!!!!
A favorite right here!
I just loved Juno!!!
