Bailie and Logan’s Allerton Park Engagement

Engagement marks the end of a whirlwind dating experience and the beginning of an eternal love story.

While they might be past the dating stage, Bailie and Logan are just beginning to embark on the next adventure in their epic love story. Their beautiful engagement session in Allerton Park was a magical way to capture their love and romance. This couple is sweet, adorable, charming, and they have all the heart eyes for each other. So glad I got to be a part of capturing the precious moments and adoring looks that are so constantly present in their relationship!

A Modern Romance

Bailie and Logan’s story is one of modern romance…and fate! These sweethearts met online through eHarmony. Although she had been on the site for 6 months, Bailie had been planning to cancel her membership; however, she missed the cancel date by two days. Thank goodness she did because she and Logan matched the very next week. Looks like fate, destiny, or whatever you want to call it had some ideas in store for Bailie and Logan!

It was a whirlwind romance to be sure. Logan says that he knew Bailie was the one within the first hour of their first date. Yep, they connected so well that Logan was ready to buy a ring right then and there! Bailie was just as head-over-heals for her new beau. After that same date, she texted her mom saying, “I think I just met my future husband.” Oh, to connect with someone so deeply, so quickly, and so fully. Love is amazing – I truly believe it is the most magical element in this entire universe!

Together, Bailie and Logan bring out each other’s silliness, and they are both committed to God. This belief and understanding provides a firm and unyielding foundation upon which they have built their relationship. They make it a point to honor Him with their lives and their relationship. Love, love, love!

An Allerton Park Engagement

To celebrate their continued commitment and desire to begin their lives together, we took their engagement session outside. We chose Allerton Park in Monticello, IL, as it is a stunning outdoor location with a beautiful garden, artistic statues, and hundreds of flowers. It breathes romance in every tree canopy, blade of grass, and flower petal. It was the perfect backdrop to help visualize the couple’s love story. Of course, the heart-pounding love between Bailie and Logan only added to the romantic and enchanting atmosphere! We captured their loving smiles, sweet glances, and precious kisses so they would have some amazing photos that they could cherish forever. It was a blessing of a day!

Happily Ever After

Next stop…a wedding! Bailie and Logan are looking forward to their #ILoveYouMoore wedding and can’t wait to see their special day come together and celebrate the start of their marriage with all of their close family and friends. Cheers to the future Mr. and Mrs. Moore!

 I’m all about preserving those moments that tell your story.

Whether it’s four feet ankle-deep in mud, tenderly clasped hands, a happy tear cascading over a cheek, a hair-back laugh or a sun-drenched kiss,

The ones that move you. Bind you. Bring you together and keep you together long after the memory fades.
