One of the things I love about engagement sessions is getting to know my new couples! It's so much fun getting to hear how they met, all about their relationship and of course any fun stories they may have about each other. I find it so interesting (and absolutely adorable) to see the dynamic between couples and how they interact with each other. So of course Shaya & Alan's engagement was no different! We decided to explore a bit outside of Rockford and headed to the Historic Baltic Mill in Belvidere, IL right at sunset. There was a live band playing at the Mill and many people walking about with picnics packed as we strolled through the park. It was such a fun ambiance to the evening and such a great way to get to know an amazing couple even better. They are getting married this weekend and I am counting down the days until I get to hang out with these two again!
