Julie + Ken ~ Casual Chicago Engagement Photography

We had a rather chilly day for their laid-back engagement session (think hand warmers necessary in May, chilly!), but these two kept each other warm and rolled right with it! I had the best time wandering around the trails of a local forest preserve with them and their sweet pup!! These two are so sweet to one another, and our conversations have me scheming to plan all kinds of trips to our National Parks and Canada!!! (Seriously – the cell phone pictures they took alone were blowing me away!! I can only imagine Ken’s film photos!)

Here are some of my favorite photos from their engagement session!




I can’t wait for their intimate wedding in July!!
