Fairbury American Legion Speedway + Downtown, Fairbury, IL
Fairbury isn’t a town I frequent very often. In fact, if it wasn’t for their annual garage sale seasons or Dave’s Meat Sale I probably wouldn’t have really ever been. However, this past fall we scheduled Paige + Ryan’s engagement session, and since they’re frequent visitors of the Fairbury Racetracks, we decided to explore the area! I was excited for the new challenge and to step out of my comfort zone a bit, plus the idea of shooting on the race track at sunset was awesome! After scouting a little before their session, I noticed a few spots in the back alley of downtown that looked great, and we started there. Ryan’s daughter joined them for the session so of course she was included in some of them. She was so sweet and super helpful when it came to helping me spot spots for ring shots and even went on a scavenger hunt for cool leaves to use in them! Once we were done downtown, the couple changed and lead us to the race tracks where they spend almost every weekend during racing season to support her dad. We ended right at sunset with the gorgeous golden fall light, and I loved every image!
