Rustic Forest Engagement | Jake & Jillian

Jake is one of the goofiest guys I know and he goes perfectly with his now wife (I know I'm behind on my blog!) Jillian. Just to put things into perspective, when they sent over their contract, he threw in a print of The Fonz, that's right, the guy from Happy Days... It was by far the best thing I've ever opened! Check out these ridiculous photos from our journey around the woods in Lemont. Don't forget to look out for a special appearance of their puppy Otto!

I love photographing these two! Before they left Chicago to move to Austin, we organized the best photo shoot yet. Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperating with us. It was raining the entire time. Even during the set up it was pouring, but it was a gorgeous summer day, so the rain didn't stop us. But the camera gear was not happy at all! Our cameras and lenses were just plain soaked. It really starts to show at the end of the shoot when the water had finally broke through the weather seal and we didn't have a dry lens left. Enough of all of that, we're here to celebrate Jaime & Tim's one year anniversary and we have an amazing team that helped pull it all together.

This has to be the most beautiful I have ever seen the lake. The colors alone make this entire shoot!
