Cantigny Park + Batavia Riverwalk Engagement Session: Allison + Matt

Matt and Allison met in ROTC while pursuing their college education. The two bonded quickly over mutual interest in pop culture gems like Firefly (note the sudden but inevitable inclusion of toy dinosaurs in some of the photos below). Although they both work with helicopters, our lowly civilian status prevented us from getting up close with aircraft. When Matt suggested Cantigny Park, the site of a variety of tanks from American military history, we were so excited for the chance to do something totally unique for this couple that features an important part of their story.  
Allison and I (Laura) met in college, and ended up studying photojournalism together, helping each other with projects and sharing frustrations over the tough teachers we endured. I consider it such an honor to have been asked to capture the love story of a fellow photographer! We can't wait to be there on the big day.
