Shauntel + Valerie | Champaign-Urbana Engagement

What can I say about these two that these pictures do not show. They are beautiful inside and out. I have loved working with these two ladies over the past year on their upcoming wedding in September. I cannot wait to photograph their beautiful nuptials at one of my favorite venues, Allerton Park in Monticello. Even better? They are getting married in the Sunken Gardens! So excited to continue working together. Thanks Valerie and Shauntel! XO

Shauntel and Valerie met and fell in love at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. So why not take their engagement pictures here? I love this campus. The architecture provides such a beautiful backdrop.

And to finish off my post, above is a side by side of two film scans SOOC (straight out of the camera).

I am loving film more and more and I am looking to incorporate it more into my sessions, including weddings and engagements. To hear more about my film journey, you can read about my first film post here.

Melanie, Great series of photos. I liked the B/W conversion tones a bunch. Should be great fun at Allerton.


Thanks Brian! Appreciate your comment and feedback!
