Jen + Chris | Engaged! | Rock Run Preserve Engagement Session | Joliet Wedding Photographer

Remember that weekend at the end of September, when the temperature was in the 90s and everyone was complaining and wondering if we would have a fall?  Well, on this 40 degree day in April, I wish I could take it back.  Sorry mother nature.  Can we have our warmth and gorgeous sunsets back please?!

Jen and Chris came out to melt with me that weekend for their engagement session at the Rock Run Preserve in Joliet.  They are the funnest couple and we spent their whole session laughing...and sweating. I am so excited to be shooting their wedding this August at the GORGEOUS Mistwood Golf Club.  

Jenny + Carl | Engaged! | Mokena Engagement Session | Chicago Wedding Photographer

Jenny and Carl were so much fun to work with! The fact that they are super model gorgeous didn't hurt either.  They were such troopers to get up at the crack of dawn with me for their sunrise engagement session.  I have to say though...that light...gosh...it was soooo worth it!! 

The two are planning a destination wedding in Charleston that I just know will be as fabulous as they are together.  Congrats!

Joe + Katie | Engaged! | Mokena Engagement Session | Chicago Wedding Photographer

I had so much fun with Katie and Joe at their engagement session!  Katie and I went to high school together and I was honored when she asked me to shoot their wedding.  We shot their "fall" engagement photos in the middle of a late September heat wave.  I don't think anyone planned on it being 90 degrees when we set the date but I know Joe loved every minute of it. ;) 

I cannot wait for their May wedding at Ruffled Feathers!  Hopefully that day will be a little cooler for them.
