Where you lead, I'll follow

This tale takes place in Teason’s Woods, a Forest Preserve of Cook County in Illinois. Catlin and Bobby showed up just shy of sunset, leaving us time to walk around the forest floor. Before their arrival, I hiked a majority of the trail looking for spots that caught my eye. This walkthrough helped the flow of our photos as we bounced from one spot to the next, finishing this shoot in under two hours!

The gnarly riffs of Chevelle echoed through the forest, a band that I uncovered was a favorite of Bobby’s when the couple filled out my engagement session questionnaire! I kept instruction pretty loose, letting them play in the moment as I framed each scene. The results are beautiful and raw, showcasing the bond these two share for one another. It was the perfect environment for a relaxing and intimate shoot. There’s also a nice level of privacy off the beaten path. No fancy clothes or crazy makeup required, just two humans and their hearts.
