It’s Wedding Wednesday loves! Time for a beautiful Rustic Countryside Engagement Session. There is so much to love about this one! The couple, the farm, the rolling hills, the sunset… I could go on and on!
Their photographer had so many nice things to say about them and their photo shoot! Nolan and Alyssa invited me out to Nolan’s family farm to do their engagement session. I had never heard of Roodhouse, Illinois before, but it’s really out in the lush countryside. I drove a distance to finally arrive, but the land was absolutely exactly what I was expecting. Beautiful rolling hills of fields and farmland (I’m a sucker for the countryside).
I’ve known Alyssa since I was really young, she was a few years behind me in school. I’ve always looked up to her though, because she’s always been so incredibly kind and talented. She is so much fun to be around and has an energy and smile that are contagious. I’m so glad that Alyssa found her match in Nolan, who mirrors her kindness. When I arrived at the farm, Nolan drove us around in his big truck with a very long canoe hanging out the back. We had fun exploring an old barn, playing and dancing in fields, and trying not to flip the canoe in what was pretty cold water :). We ended the night by having them dance in front of Nolan’s truck lights. How fun! – Meredith Washburn
I think my favorite pictures from this session are the pictures on the canoe. Anyone who has ever been in a canoe knows how rocky they are so I’m very impressed they didn’t even tip the canoe! Most importantly, the pictures turned out beautiful and so romantic!
I also really love the lighting they were able to capture in the pictures! It adds so much depth and color to the pictures. And again, makes them so romantic!
I hope you all enjoy this rustic countryside engagement as much as I did! Congratulations Nolan and Alyssa!
