Fullersburg Woods Engagement Photos, Oak Brook Engagement Photographer / Elaine + Chris


Elaine and Chris!! When we first met these two at a wedding this past August, we immediately hit it off and loved how fun they are and how happy they are together. They have such an infectious joy that makes it so easy to be around them :) Jason had such a great time with them at Fullerburg Woods in Oak Brook a few weeks ago – and I love how they incorporated their fun personalities into the session!! As you’ll see for the second half, there are some Mobile Girl MiM dolls – a facebook messenger sticker pack that the pair discovered a few years ago and adopted as their doppelgängers once they noticed the uncanny resemblance to themselves :) And the laser tag guns – an homage to their 3rd date in Wicker Park which was a wonderful night that started with a picnic and ended with a game of laser tag :) We cannot wait for their wedding next September!! Enjoy the pics!!
