Jen + Willy Engagement I Chicago, Millenium Park Engagement Photographer


Jen and Willy are awesome. I’m fairly certain them and I giggled through this entire session. They are such good natured, caring, and genuine people – who happen to be head over heels for each other. It is sessions like this that make me absolutely love my job, that leave me feeling uplifted and super blessed for the caring clients I have. I am so looking forward to their wedding next fall, and can’t wait to share their pictures. Enjoy!!
