Joy + Kyle
Schiller Park | German Village
It is crazy how people from your past can pop up out of nowhere. Joy reached out to me about wedding photography after being referred by a mutual friend. Only, I hadn’t talked to this friend in YEARS. Seriously… since my skate slingin’ days.
How cool is that? I love how this industry is constantly connecting me and reconnecting me to such awesome people. And I am so happy Dom sent these two my way! I met Joy and Kyle over coffee and we easily connected!
I looooved this engagement session and getting to know Joy and Kyle more! I cannot believe their wedding is just a little over a month away!
Joy and Kyle are high school sweethearts. And you can tell. These two are just effortless together; something that only comes with time.
Joy loved the pond at Schiller Park, so we decided to do photos around gorgeous German Village. We had to reschedule once because of rain, but this night was so perfect! I’m glad we waited because the sun became super dreamy as the evening went on.
Kyle immediately understood how to “nuzzle in.” Sometimes guys look at me like I am nuts when I ask them to do this, but Kyle made it look like he always whispers sweet nothings in Joy’s ear! Haha! He was seriously so good at this! The way he looked at her just melted my heart!
This couple is motivated and I love seeing how hard they work to make their dreams, including their upcoming wedding a reality. I’m so excited for their big day!
I have to brag on these two for putting up with me, too! They already had not one, but two engagement sessions and they somehow agreed to do a third with me! It’s so important for me to do engagements sessions with my bride and groom so that when we go to do bridal portraits on the wedding day, everyone is good to go! So thank you guys!!
Joy, you are going to look absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to see Kyle’s face when he sees you for the first time on your big day! Not much longer!!
Here are some of my favorite photos from their (final) engagement session!
