Lauren + Joe ~ West Town Neighborhood Engagement ~ Chicago Engagement Photography

Oh my gosh – these two are so much fun!!! I had the best time with them in our initial meeting (it may be the Big Ten in all of us) and was pretty stoked to get to hang out with them again. 🙂 Initially they were iffy about this whole “engagement session” thing, but after explaining how important I think they are to make your wedding day go super smoothly & get the best resulting images – they agreed. 🙂 Yay!

We went super low-key with these (because these two are awesomely laid back) and I met them at their place in West Town neighborhood and we wandered around the neighborhood from there for the session – stopping whenever a location (or light, more importantly) caught my eye!

I’m not going to lie – I’m pretty obsessed with these and love how happy and joyful they came out! Perfectly fitting of Lauren & Joe… 🙂


We get serious for one minute – and HELLOOOO LAUREN! Stunning!


Aren’t they the cutest?!
