Downers Grove Engagement Photos / Lauren + Reid


Lauren and Reid met through work in 2012, and after a few nights out with coworkers they hit it off and have been together ever since :) I met Reid through his brother’s wedding that we photographed a few years ago (and I’m pretty much over the moon about their whole family), so when I saw the email that him and Lauren were engaged I was SO thrilled!! Lauren knew since they both live in Downer’s Grove that they would want to incorporate some of their favorite spots, starting at Every Day’s A Sundae ice cream shop (this girl knows the way to my heart!!!). We then headed over to this adorable park that had the most perfect sunset and fall leaves!! Lauren and Reid are officially my first leaf-throwing couple of the year :) I adore these two and especially adore this session, enjoy the pics!
