Jesmin & Saajid’s Midwest Photo Session

Although wedding and engagement sessions are my main game, I’m always up for doing some sweet couple sessions just for fun! I especially love meeting new couples that are not from the area, so getting to do a Midwest photo session with Jesmin and Saajid was a blast! Being from out of state, Jesmin and Saajid wanted to celebrate their first year of marriage with a love story session amidst the gorgeous colors that can only be found in a central Illinois fall landscape. Neither the couple’s love or the setting was a disappointment, that’s for sure!

Jesmin and Saajid met through family. It was a setup and both were nervous the first time they met their future spouse. It must have gone well though, because these sweethearts wed last year in a beautiful December wedding! As a couple, Jesmin and Saajid love to watch TV, go on date nights, spend time at home doing nothing, and recently made a lifestyle change together to eat healthier and go to the gym. They also love to sightsee and travel. They have a trip to Canada and another trip to Ensanada, Mexico planned this year. And of course, they traveled to Illinois, where they enjoyed the scenery and also got their Midwest photo session!

For their Midwest photo session, they wanted photos that would capture the beauty of fall in the Midwest. Not only was the scenery inspiring, Jesmin and Saajid’s love for each other was incredible! They were so comfortable with each other, and it was obvious that they fall more and more in love with each passing day. So glad I had the opportunity to meet these adorable lovebirds and capture part of their love story among the changing fall leaves!

Loved their outdoorsy, fall photo session? Check out Cassie and Cory’s Fall Anniversary Session and Jess and Billy’s Sunset Engagement Session, which also took advantage of the beautiful Midwest scenery.
