DONALD + WHITNEY | Southern Illinois Engagement Photographer
Ferne Clyffe State Park, Illinois
I was so excited when Donald & Whitney came to ask if I would shoot their wedding. You could tell instantly how much Donald adores Whitney & I would have been a fool to pass this moment up. Then after talking a bit I found out Whitney has an adorable daughter! Lil miss A was pretty smitten around Donald & it was clear to see she wanted this family just as much as her mamma did. One of my favorite things about Lil miss A is that she calls Donald "Babe". I am so happy for you all & can not wait for your big day!
If you ever want a sweet sweet proposal story you must ask Donald. He had Lil miss A hold the ring box & she helped ask her mommy to marry him!!!! How sweet is that?!?! Did I mention he asked with a beautiful Vera Wang ring?
This location was chosen by the bride to be...It was magical & I loved every minute. She grew up in this area with her family so it meant a great deal to her to include it. I was more than happy to make the trip!
The good Lord provides the most amazing background!
One thing I have to say is that I loved how the groom knew exactly what he wanted. He had one request. He wanted a photo of Whitney holding his face with a kiss showing off that gorgeous ring! I don't blame him!!!!
Sometimes the best moments are the ones that happen by accident. This moment was an accident at first but then turned into pure BEAUTY!
You're an angel, tell me you're never leaving
Cause you're the first thing I know I can believe in
You're holy, holy, holy, holy
I'm high on loving you, high on loving you
