Astin + Brandon - A Chalco Hills Engagement

It was hot and we were smack dab in the middle of a pandemic and protests but these two managed to sneak away with me to Chalco Hills Recreation area in Omaha, Nebraska to capture a few incredible engagement photos.

Chalco Hills tends to be one of my (and many other local photographer's) go-to places for on-location photography. I just love the tall grass and trees and when that sun is setting - ahhh...dreamy.

The countdown is on for Astin + Brandon who will be getting married in November at The Barn at the Ackerhurst Dairy Farm in Bennington, Nebraska and I, for one, CANNOT WAIT!!!!
