I am so excited to share this blog post with you today! When we scheduled this engagement session with Brie and Rafa, we got super excited because Bri wanted a vintage like photo shoot and when she told us I just knew we had to go to Dick’s Towing in Joliet. They have some really nice cars on display and I thought it could be a nice place to take some fun vintage photos, and I am so glad I was not mistaken.
Bri looked stunning wearing her blue polka dot dress and Rafa was totally rocking that brown jacket. Earlier in the day, there was a horrible thunderstorm but the clouds cleared and moved away just in time for the photo session letting a few rays of sun peaking to make them shine.
Rafa has an extensive collection of vinyl records and so he wanted to include a piece of his treasure in the photoshoot, so we drove over to Joliet Iron Works Historic Site. I thought the old ruins were the perfect setting. Joliet Iron and Steel Works was once the second largest steel mill in the United States back in the 1900s but all operations were ceased by the early 1980s and eventually the Forest Preserve District of Will County purchased the property back in the 1990s.
Bri changed into a beautiful black dress and Rafa opted for a denim vest and black jeans, we decided to continue hiking and explore the site. They both allowed us to be super creative and thankfully we were able to come out with images that seemed like pages straight out of a magazine.
It was an absolute pleasure hanging out with Bri and Rafael. We cannot wait to witness their wedding day!
