Kaitlyn and Alex | Downtown South Bend Engagement Session

When I first met with Kaitlyn and Alex at the Chicory Cafe, I knew right away I wanted to photograph their wedding. A May wedding at the new River House Bed and Breakfast at The Morris Estate. An intimate affair for their closest family and friends to celebrate their marriage! And Bed and Breakfast weddings will always have such a special place in my heart, because Miles and I were married at a bed and breakfast, and all our families stayed the weekend with us there. It was perfect and I know that Kaitlyn and Alex’s wedding in just 3 short weeks will be too.

We had so much fun in the warm weather. We talked about their final wedding plans and the excitement was written all over their faces. They beamed as they talked about their day, knowing it was just a month away. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding, I know it is going to be full of so many laughs, so much love, and maybe a few happy tears!

Oh man! All I can say to start is that Fay and Jacob are absolute rock stars. They braved the INSANELY cold weather for their engagement session. By the end of the session, it was sleeting, and the wind was blowing so hard I thought we were all going to get frost bite. But we didn’t! We made it through - and it was all worth it because the photos in Chicago are always some of my favorites.

I met Fay in August, when she won my raffle prize at Bride Vs. Bride. And I am so glad that we were available to photograph their wedding day! I absolutely LOVED taking their engagement photos, they are so much fun and should probably give up their day jobs to become models, I mean seriously!

September is going to be here before we know it and I cannot wait to capture their day!!
