Downtown Champaign, Illinois

After nearly escaping tornado storms and rescheduling their first session, we were bound to make the second go at it work for real! We met at Barrelhouse 34 first for a drink to loosen those nerves, then began our walk of downtown! Finding cool textures, lots of back alley staircases, and complete with the lights at sundown, their session was a breeze. I can’t wait for their wedding later next month!

One of the only requests from sweet Bethany was to have some photos with the lights overhead downtown. I do love them and the side lot next to the Blind Pig Brewery was perfect. blind pig engagement session with lights happy couple champagin centre black wall urban city e-sesh wheat weeds diamond ring city of champaign building blind pig brewery
