Leann + Patrick ~ Chicago Engagement Photography

Leann, Patrick, and I have been on a bit of a whirlwind the past month! We first met for coffee in early January to get to know each other and chat about their wedding (which sounds just my style, and I’m suuuuper excited about it). Then they contacted me the next day to let me know they wanted to book me for their big day, and immediately scheduled their engagement session for this past Saturday!

Usually the process from start to finish can be more drawn out than that – so it’s been a nice change to really hitting the ground running… getting to spend so much time together and getting to know each other right from the start! These two are totally down to earth, so easy to chat with, and always keep each other (and me) smiling & laughing!

We met up on the northwest side of Chicago (by Leann’s alma mater, coincidentally) for their engagement session this past weekend and they did their best to keep each other warm and totally rocked this session out! (Well, really Patrick was keeping Leann warm… but that’s what space-heater significant others are for, right?! At least that’s one of the reasons I keep James around! ;))

Anyway – enough chatter from me – go check out their cozy winter session! It should keep you smiling all the way through!


Gorgeous Leann!!!

So. Sweet.


I love these two and cannot wait for their wedding in June! Yay! 🙂
