I met Julie & Mike just weeks earlier at Jennifer & Michael’s wedding. Julie was a bridesmaid and Mike was seated at the same table as me during the reception.
We chatted about their beginning stages of wedding planning including venues and such and as always, I threw my name into the pool of possible photographer contenders. 😉
I remembered talking to Julie in the morning of the wedding about how she just got engaged at the top of the hill in Naperville by the river walk.
I thought, that place would be great for their engagement pictures too! A short while later, I got an email from Julie and we set up a date and time to meet.
I could not have been happier with their morning. It was oddly warm and perfect!
Julie stepped out of the car with what I can only describe as a Mary Poppins bag of engagement goodies.
…and up the hill we climbed…
Julie + Mike
We of course started at the top of the hill where he proposed.
