Olivia and Allen | Downtown Bloomington, IL Engagement Photos


Who’s ready for some downtown Bloomington, IL engagement photos? Olivia and Allen are from out of town and had one request for photos: nothing remotely “country.” Having their trust was so important to me, so I told them that engagement photos in downtown Bloomington, IL was the way to go.

We really loved getting to hang out with these two during some pretty amazing light. And they were completely down for all my crazy ideas, including meeting at a pretty sketchy part of downtown Bloomington.  But there is nothing “country” about these photos. This is my take on urban: a little gritty, but still intimate and romantic, fun and modern.




Olivia and Allen are that awesome blend of “we are waaay smarter than you, but we’re also really awesome and nice about it and we’re not going to make you feel bad.” At least, that’s my take on it 🙂  Thanks so much, guys! We’ll see you in June at the amazing Silver Fox!


Hey friends: if you want your photos to have a soft, glowy, golden look to them, be like Olivia and Allen: schedule your session for about an hour before sundown. You won’t regret it! And that goes for downtown Bloomington, IL engagement photos or family sessions or weddings!
