Mortem Arboretum Engagement Session | Midwest Wedding Photographer

Is there anything more romantic than an elegant outdoor shoot? This Mortem Arboretum engagement session could not have been more beautiful! The wooded paths and grassy slopes made a perfect backdrop for the bride’s two looks: a floor-length red lace gown and knee-length cream chiffon dress.

These two were the sweetest people to work with! And so ready to relax and have fun! There was enough twirling, frolicking, and sweeping-off-her-feet to fill a feature length rom-com. 🙂 But the love these two clearly have for each other goes way deeper than a surface-level romance. Just listen to their love story, told by the bride-to-be:

My partner and I met in a club in San Francisco, CA while I was visiting some friends. Turns out he grew up in the suburbs of Illinois too! We kept in touch and the rest is history. In 2019 I was diagnosed with Steven-Johnson’s Syndrom/Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis and spent one month in a medically induced coma due to my injuries. I had to learn how to walk, talk and eat again along with multiple surgeries. Nick proposed in the hospital room after I woke up from my coma and was recovering.

It was an absolute treat to partner with this lovely couple for a Moretem Arboretum engagement shoot! As a Midwest wedding photographer, it’s so fun to find the perfect corner of the state or city that fits each couple’s personality. Scroll down and don’t miss a moment!
