One of my favorites spots to photograph in ANY season, is Cantigny Park! That’s why when Rachel and Dylan decided on a fall Cantigny Park engagement session, I was beyond excited! Cantigny Park’s mix of beautiful gardens and historic architecture make the perfect backdrop for photographs.
I met Rachel and Dylan last winter when I met them both for a cup of coffee at a local Starbucks. Immediately I noticed how incredibly in love these two were and how our conversations naturally took off! Believe it or not, I spent two hours talking to them that day!
One of my favorite stories they told me that day is that they met back in middle school. They had class together and in 8th grade. Dylan worked up the courage to ask her to their 8th grade dance where they danced to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”. I’m pretty sure this song will be played at their wedding! That summer, they started dating and they’ve been together ever since!
Fast forward to spending the evening with these two! I loved that Rachel is so quick to smile and laugh, especially when Dylan would wispier something funny in her ear. Dylan was so sweet and attentive to Rachel. He put his coat around her shoulders since it was a cool fall night. Plus he’d give her sweet kisses on the cheek, which were SO ROMANTIC!
Rachel and Dylan, I hope you love your engagement photos and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding next fall at Heritage Prairie Farms!!
