Jake + Annelise @ Main Street St. Charles

Freezing  weather forced us to push the shoot back a week, but it was worth the wait because we were able to use the snow for some wintery photos.  I found out that the day of our shoot was also Jake and Annelise’s anniversary – how cool!  Main street has its expected charming restaurants and shops, but with just a short walk it is easy to find interesting and historic areas in between and behind the buildings.  We even explored the woods near the river, then Jake and Annelise broke out their farming gear to recreate the famous American Gothic painting.  Check out the original:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Gothic
