To end of last year’s shoots, I had the honor of capturing the formal engagement ceremony of Rejani and Lejoe, in Indian Creek, Illinois. Rejani is from Baltimore, and it was awesome to see both families come together to celebrate their plans for marriage. I started out at Lejoe’s house for a quick prayer before the ceremony.

We then headed over to the beautiful St. Mary Of Vernon Catholic Church in Indian Creek, Illinois for the engagement ceremony.

An Indian ceremony tradition for engagements that I love is when the two fathers hug-

After the ceremony, we headed back to Lejoe’s house for a luncheon.  They did an amazing job decorating their place!

I was able to steal the two of them away for about 5 minutes for a mini-shoot, and we made the most of it!
