Diane + Matt ~ Montrose Beach Engagement ~ Chicago Engagement Photography

Happy Memorial Day everyone! We are sending so much love to those who have served our country and those who are currently serving. We are forever indebted to you!

Memorial Day also means today is the ‘unofficial’ start of summer, and time is flying! I can’t believe we’re just over a month away from Diane and Matt’s sure to be beautiful Chicago Cultural Center wedding! I feel like it was just yesterday I was skyping with these two about their big day! I’m so happy we were able to squeeze in an engagement session and I got to see how crazy these two are about each other in person!

It is pretty apparent from the way they look at each other and keep one another smiling, that Diane and Matt are so, so great together. They have so much fun and are sweet all at the same time. Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session… where we hit up the Holiday Club (where they met!), wandered the neighborhood, and then ended at Montrose Beach for some quiet photos away from the bustle of the city.



That time Diane decided to spontaneously kiss Matt on the forehead, but forgot she was wearing red lipstick! haha!


We had wrapped the session and were heading back towards the trail to our cars when this happened… Matt was helping Diane up the giant steps by the lake. They were so adorable I couldn’t help but grab a couple more snaps with my camera!



Ah! Love them and cannot wait for their wedding in June!
