Allyson: I have always been in love with Cheekwood and the arch at the mansion. I knew I always wanted to have pictures taken there. So, I sort of had this vision in place and knew thats where I wanted them. My fiancé also loves Cheekwood as well so he was excited too!

But our photographer did such a great job bringing my vision to life. She made the session fun and took such a beautiful photos that we will always cherish.
