Downtown Springfield Urban Engagement Session Liz + Neil | Promised

May 29, 2019

There is just something about the comfort and “known” factor of high school sweethearts…and for whatever reason, I get to photograph a LOT of them!  Liz and Neil are one of those couples!  My first interaction with either of them was actually a long time ago…TEN years ago to be exact, when Neil and I were in a community theatre show together!  I was one of 2 actual “adults” in that show (it was High School Musical and a co-director of mine and I just HAD to try out after we put on the show ourselves the previous year!), and it was such a fun experience- but I didn’t get to know a lot of the younger kids in the cast since I was SO much older than them…and Neil was one of those! 🙂
I was so excited to meet them from the first time they emailed me.  They are travelers, readers, adventurers, and 2 really intelligent and interesting people!  And they are crazy about each other.

I got a second view in between their engagement session and when I am sharing this post, and that is because Liz’s family also booked a spring mini-session.  Let me just tell you, I adored every one of them…and my favorite part? These people knew how to laugh.  As I watched them walk away, Neil was hanging out with Liz’s 2 younger brothers just laughing and joking and playing…I can see so much fun and shenanigans in their future together between the 3 guys, with Liz and her parents just enjoying being able to witness it all!  They were a very special family to see interact together, and Neil fits in SO perfectly.

And isn’t that the ideal siutation for the person you will marry??  I can’t wait to share these many favorites with you!
Liz’s joy is evident in everything she does!
Back to the place they met and fell in love!! Liz and Neil, full gallery coming soon!  I can’t wait for your wedding!!
