Kila and Nick | Chicago Engagement Session

Okay - where do I even start with this blog post?! I have known Kila for at least 6 years now. I used to work part time with her mom at a tax office (I’m not naming names today). And we met through that! We traveled to many Vera Bradley shows in Fort Wayne and kept in touch. I got to photograph her gorgeous bestie’s wedding this past September (Shout out Ashley and Jordan!) And when Kila got engaged in November, she called me the very next day! We talked all about Nick’s proposal - talked about my available dates and venues that I loved in the Kalamazoo are since they both went to Western Michigan. Of course I said “LOFT 310!!!” and was just so excited for them and honored to get to capture their wedding day!

Their engagement session was so much fun. We walked around a foggy, semi drizzly Chicago and it made for some seriously beautiful photos at North Avenue Beach. We talked about their day, the vendors that they have booked and it got me even more excited to photograph their wedding day. Not only because I will get to work with some amazing vendors (shoutout to my girl Leah at LB Floristry) at an amazing venue, but I get to spend the day with these two and their families, capturing the most perfect day. I am so excited to share their engagement session with you (sorry it took so long…) and can’t wait for April when they become Mr. and Mrs. Elliott!!

Allison and Chris | St. Joe Michigan Engagement | Silver Beach Engagement

Allison and Chris! I am so happy to share their images with you all. I met with Allison and Chris last summer to chat about their October 2019 wedding at The Morris Park Country Club. And we clicked as soon as we sat down to start talking about their day. I had so much fun laughing with them on the beach and getting excited with them to hear about all their wedding plans coming together! It is going to be such a beautiful day and I am SOOO pumped to be a part of it. Also, can you tell it was like 50 degrees and super windy during their engagement session? They rocked it and made my job SO easy!
