Chicago Botanic Garden Engagement Session, Glencoe Engagement Photographer / Addie + Mike


Addie and Mike first met at Calvin college 10 years ago, but their paths didn’t cross again until last August when they met again through mutual friends. They both knew right away that this was it! I’ve known Addie since I first met her sister all the way back in 5th grade, so words can’t even begin to express how excited I am for her and Mike. We had an amazing morning together at the stunning Chicago Botanic Garden, and I can’t wait for their beautiful Michigan wedding this September. Enjoy the pics!!

    This comment for earning a reward missed the deadline, because I was on vacation. Wanted to comment anyway.
    I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful pictures of Mike and Addie. They convey such love and excitement for their future together! Favorite one was of Mike kissing Addie adoringly by the gate, and she was looking at the camera. The gate opening a new chapter in their lives, and even with the kiss, one could still see their faces. Each photo was very creative and a pleasure to view.
