Springfield Engagement

Whitney + Nick’s Springfield Engagement


When planning for your engagement shoot, sometimes people think they need to plan it over the perfect weather. To get the best shots, in our head means clear skies and sunlight! But really, we can capture the love you share with any weather. Whitney and Nick are such great examples of that! We got to capture their Springfield engagement photos on a cloudy, rainy day. The umbrella adds a pop, and make’s it so unique and still so romantic. Sometimes it even adds a flair of drama to give the perfect slice of romance that we know the couple shares. Check out the gorgeous shots this couple will cherish for a lifetime, and the adorable love story to go with it!

Whitney + Nick’s Love Story

Their love story begins in Champaign, Illinois. Nick moved to Champaign from the Springfield area. They were working at Busey Bank and their bosses actually set them up and initiated the first date! They went to Guidos for an amazing drink and dinner together. Whitney and Nick started officially dating on August 19, 2017. November 26, 2020, is when Nick proposed.

They had a trip planned to go to Savannah, Georgia. Savannah is their all-time favorite place! They went down to visit family and spend Thanksgiving with them. He scared her by telling Whitney that they had to call his mom back and she needed to talk to them. She thought something was wrong! In retrospect, their future niece just had surgery a couple of days before so she thought it had something to do with that. As they left the table because she “didn’t answer” he turned and got down on one knee. He surprised her by having her parents fly out to Georgia! They totally caught her off guard when they were outside when she came out! Whitney said it was truly special and that she was so surprised!
