Jessica + Joe Engagement / Herrick Lake, St. James Farm Engagement Photos


Jessica and Joe are such opposites but compliment each other so well. Joe loves the outdoors, especially fishing and bird watching (and I loved that he brought his canoe to the session!!), while Jessica is more of an indoors girl that loves reading. They pull the best out of each other, and are so adorable together. We started our session at Herrick Lake in Naperville, and then headed over to St. James Farm┬áin Wheaton. It was such a beautiful day and I loved getting to spend time with these two. I can’t wait for their wedding, enjoy the pics!!
