Not only are we excited to share these gorgeous engagement session photos, but it also feels like the perfect time of year to share Kelly and Tim’s engagement story right along with them. We first teamed up with Kelly and Tim when they approached us about shooting their August 2016 wedding at Chicago’s very own urban oasis, the Ivy Room. Kelly’s warm and friendly demeanor combined with Tim’s passion for learning makes them a dream team when it comes to an exciting relationship. I feel like we could all learn a thing or two from a couple that plays off of each other’s strengths in such a wonderful way. When Kelly told us that the original plan this past Christmas had been for them to head to the Lincoln Park Zoo for Zoo Lights only to be surpised with a gift wrapped front door and an emotional letter asking her to be his wife we couldn’t help but melt inside. Ha, and yes, the last line of his card read “If you’re still reading this, my knee is probably cramping up by now so hurry up and come inside”. A love like this makes us smile from ear to ear and we hope it does for you too!
