Jessica emailed me back in November about engagement photos. Her one request … she wanted them in the snow.
Normally, Chicago, snow and winter usually go hand-in-hand. However with the crazy temperatures this year, I was very worried that we were not going to get the beautiful, white snow that Jessica was longing for. So when we got our first “big” snowfall of the winter this weekend, I called her up and said it was our opportunity.
I met her and her fiancé, James, at Lee Street Beach in Evanston on Sunday morning, and we had the most perfect session! I was pretty much obsessed with these two instantly. Jessica and James have this adorable kind of love. The kind where they were both so sweet and cute in front of my camera, but they were even more perfect when they thought I wasn’t watching. Yes, during my little breaks to my car to grab props …. I could see them hugging, laughing and gazing into each others eyes. It was very clear how crazy they are about each other … which only made my job that much easier.
Jessica met James through mutual friends. She told me that she knew he was the one for her because she had never been loved like how James loves her. After spending just a short time with them, I can tell that the love they have for each other is like no other.
Jessica and James choose to have their session in Evanston because they live right around the corner from this beach/park. I must admit, it is pretty gorgeous. I am seriously considering moving to Evanston.
