Engagement Session ~ Ross and Jill ~ Scott County Park and Pioneer Village ~ Midwest Wedding Photographer

June 8, 2019

Far and away my favorite part of photographing weddings is the amazing couples I’ve met along this journey! Enter Ross and Jill. Jill and I had an immediate connection over education, as she currently works as a teacher and my background is also in education. When we met for our wedding consultation at Panera back in January, Jill shared her amazing love story with me.

Ross and Jill met at Coram Deo (formerly Harvest Bible Chapel) and dated for a while before Ross was transferred out east for his job. Shortly after his move, Ross proposed. Since then, they’ve endured more than a year of daily phone calls and monthly trips to see one another, and they are so looking forward to living in the same state again!

In the two hours we spent together, it was easy to see the strength of their love and the sweetness of their relationship. Ross and Jill will tie the knot on August 3 at Coram Deo, with the reception to follow at The Stern Center. I know celebrating their awesome love will be beautiful! I can’t wait!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from Ross and Jill’s engagement session!
