When deciding on a location for engagement photos the first question I always ask is – what places mean the most to you? I'm happy to recommend the most beautiful spots across the state but the most meaningful shoots happen in sentimental locations. Growing up with Annie, I was so excited and not at all surprised she wanted her photos at the State Fair.

I'm sure you're thinking, where are the people? To avoid the crowds we decided to get an early start and it SO worth it for this shoot. The fairgrounds open way before the vendors do and that means we basically had the entire place to ourselves. We were able to hit all of the hotspots without the crowds and were first in line for Sweet Martha's Cookies. If you're looking to take photos here – wake up early!
