You want to know what I love? I love it when couples do something unique for their engagement session! Not only do I love it when they select unique locations and ideas for their shoot, I also love it when these ideas and locations have sentimental value. Candi emailed me and shared her engagement session idea, and I loved it. Her family has a long history of working for the railroad. For generations, this industry has been a part of her family’s livelihood and a huge part of their story as well. It was a perfect idea to do their shoot at the Virginia Transportation Museum in Roanoke, Virginia. Candi’s cousin let us into the museum and gave us some behind the scenes access to historic engines, and it was so cool to see these massive machines up close and personally!
Ted and Candi started their session at the museum and then we headed down the road to a rail yard for even more access to old, vintage trains! It was so much fun getting to do something new for their shoot, but what I really loved the most was getting to spend time with these two and hearing their story!
Ted and Candi currently live out in Portland, Oregon! Talk about a long flight! They came home for the holidays and it was a perfect time for their shoot. Candi and Ted’s energy, sweet spirits, and love for one another made their shoot such a dream!
They were both ready to throw in the towel in the dating realm and then they found one another. At the perfect time, they found their soulmate. It’s obvious when you’re around these two that they are an amazing pair. It was an honor to be a part of their engagement session, but it will also be such an honor to be a part of their wedding day! It will be here before we know it and we can’t wait!
This session took place just 45 minutes before their welcome dinner the night before their big day! Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome!
Our life has been a whirlwind in the best kind of way this summer! Life sure looks a lot different than it did just a few years ago and it’s about to change AGAIN!

We met Nicole and Matt the day before their wedding day in downtown Chicago. Normally, we prefer to do a full engagement session with our KJ Couples before their big day but that really wasn’t possible due to our schedules and the long distance. Thankfully, meeting the day before was absolutely perfect and it prepared all of us to have a dream wedding day in the Windy City!
Have you had a troublesome groom in the past? They don’t cooperate with the poses and just want to get back to the party?
