Kankakee Spring Engagement Session | Mattie & Shaun


The weather for Mattie and Shaun’s Kankakee spring engagement session was just perfect. Spring in Illinois isn’t predictable in any way, so after a reschedule due to the rain, we were blessed with a beautiful evening at Olivet Nazarene University where Mattie attending college and Perry Farm in Bradley.

Shaun and Mattie met thru Shaun’s best friend Sami. Shaun says that he knew she was “the one” when every time he left Mattie, he missed her. He proposed by telling Mattie that his photographer friend wanted to “try out a new lens” on them and then the photographer got to capture the sweetest proposal! Of course, she said yes and they got the cutest pictures from that special time. They love watching TV, hanging out outside together, geocaching, and going out with friends.

We had a great time getting to know each other during their session, and I learned all about geocaching. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in December.
