Matthiessen State Park Styled Shoot
I have been trying to explore as many new places as I can in Illinois and Minnesota right now. I’m doing this because one, I am realizing that I have kind of put myself in a bubble for a good chunk of my life, only going places where I am comfortable. And two, I really want to help others also break out of their bubbles one day! I love exploring new places and trying new things and I would love to help create experiences for friends and family members to get outside of their comfort zones and explore the beautiful world that we are all a part of.
Matthiessen State park was a dream to walk around in. With all the rain that has been going on this spring, it was a pretty muddy, but Kristyn and Justin didn’t even bat an eyelash. They just walked right on through that muddy path (seriously look at some of the last few shots of her dress) and had so much fun while doing it! They are the freaking cutest and lovey couple, all of their love is so subtle and so intimate, it was so amazing to have the opportunity to capture it. After spending an amazing morning taking pictures we stopped at an IHOP on our way back and refueled our bodies, laughing and sharing stories the entire time.
