Laura & Brian | Chicago, IL

I met up with Laura, Brian, and their sweet girl, Dottie, in their adorable apartment in the city for their sweet Chicago engagement. We roamed around the neighborhood, hit up the beach, Laura's work rooftop that overlooks the beautiful Chicago skyline, and ended at the very bar Laura and Brian first met! 

These two are so sweet and I had such a great time getting to know them! Can't wait for their Chicago wedding this Ocotber!

Chris & Catherine | Arranmore Farm + Polo Club

I met Chris and Catherine officially, a few weeks ago, at the gorgeous Arranmore Farm + Polo Club in Oswego, Illinois. I've been chatting with them for a few months now, as they prepare for their wedding day in March of next year. We connected via Instagram and we immediately became fast friends. 

When we met for their engagement session, it was like connecting with old friends. We had such a wonderful time, venturing around the farm and these two ... well, you can certainly, undoubtedly feel the love. Grateful our paths crossed and super thankful we get to share in their big day!!!

The best kind of love is when you can see the soul in each other’s eyes. When you touch, the butterflies come rushing back into your stomach, and for a single moment, you think, “I don’t think I could feel anymore loved right now”. Real love reminds us that there will always be hard days, but with someone standing by your side, who loves you fully, nothing is impossible.

Alexia & Ken | Round Barn Winery | Baroda, Michigan

I met up with Alexia, Ken, and sweet Bella at the beautiful Round Barn Winery in Baroda, Michigan. We love Round Barn for it's beautiful grounds, good wine, and great staff! 

Alexia and Ken are so kind and I had a great time getting to know them a little bit. Their sweet babe, Bella, was little miss model and so dang adorable! We wish these three all the joy and happiness! 

Halie & Tyler | Starved Rock State Park Adventure

Halie and Tyler answered our Starved Rock model call a couple months back. They were a perfect fit for what we were looking for! They are adventurous and fun and take a beautiful photo! 

I met up with them at Starved Rock State Park in Oglesby, IL at the beginning of June. These two came all the way from Newaygo, MI!  It was such a HOT and humid day but these two hiked with me for a couple of hours and were such troopers! It was so great to get to know Halie and Tyler. Their love for each other was so sweet and they made my job that much easier! 

Congrats to this wonderful couple on their recent engagemnt!!

Lauren & Nicole {Round Barn Winery and Weko Beach}

We first met Lauren and Nicole earlier this year, at a bridal show we were privileged to be a part of in South Bend. But, as our worlds collided, I actually recognized Nicole, who used to work at one of our favorite coffee shops in downtown South Bend! We absolutely LOVED chatting with them about how they met and about their special day, which is right around the corner, in November!

It was a steamy day for their engagement session back in June, but it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous one! We first ventured to the Round Barn Winery in Baroda, Michigan, where these lovelies sampled some of the wonderful wines! We were greeted with such kindness at the winery and I have to give a shout out to my friend Michael, and the amazing staff there, who helped us out, and even let us stay a little bit longer past their closing time! Such great people!!! From there, we adventured to Weko Beach, where a dip in the lake was a perfect ending to such a wonderful evening! 

These two ladies are so incredibly sweet. Not to mention ... so very much in love! It was a joy spending some time with them and sharing in some wonderful moments! And we can't wait to celebrate in their wedding day!!
