We’ve seen our fair share of creative engagement sessions here at SMP… everything from rooms filled to the brim with balloons to drop-dead gorgeous locales to crazy gorgeous themes.  And when it comes to these two sweeties, it’s the appearance of their college alma mater that has our hearts pitter pattering. Because a happy frolic through the very place they first met and fell in love is kind of like the best thing ever.  As are the breathtaking photos captured by the ever-talented Ashley Biess.  See it all in the full gallery.  It’s amazing.

From Ashley Biess Photography… Hannah and Mike made the trip back to their alma mater, Augustana College, for this sweet engagement session. We walked around the beautiful campus, reliving the moments from when they first met and started dating. The couple brought along their adorable pup, Chili, who donned a stylish bow-tie around his neck, special for the occasion. After exploring the iconic archways, buildings and staircases of the college, we ventured to the railroad tracks and downtown area of the city. My favorite find of the day was the “Have a Happy Day” sign that perfectly complimented the couple’s bright and cheerful personalities.
