One of the byproducts of us living in Florida since we began our photography is that we haven’t seen a fall in years! When Jon’s job included a move to St. Louis, we were so excited to get to enjoy our favorite season again. And when you combine our favorite season with a gorgeous couple’s engagement session? We were in our happy place.
Cody & Savannah met at college when they went paintballing together with a group their freshman year, where Savannah got some impressive battle scars. Cody wanted to have a reason to talk to Savannah in the following months, but all he could think to ask was if her welts were any better. That was the extent of their conversation topics – until their junior year, when their paths crossed again with another paintballing trip. Afterwards, Cody was certainly interested in Savannah, and planned a group outing to see a movie that he invited Savannah to – and then everyone else conveniently dropped out. He asked if she still wanted to go – she did. And so their story began!
After graduating, Cody & Savannah both moved to the Chicagoland area, where Cody grew up, and where Savannah is in law school. We met them at the beautiful Fabyan Forest Preserve for their engagement session. Jon and I couldn’t get over how this couple literally nailed every pose from the beginning. Their love was such a joy to shoot. Cody & Savannah – thank you so much for having us capture this chapter of your lives.
