An Engagement Session | Josh + Nicole | Lake County Forest Preserve

May 21, 2018

This couple probably looks familiar!!  I did their first engagement session quite a while ago but decided I needed them in front of my lens one more time before their big day!  They were my very first engagement session and between then and now, I have invested in some new equipment and education.  I have learned so much from other photographers and I really wanted to test out my new skills!!  It worked out perfectly that Nicole had her hair and make-up trial the same day 🙂  She was absolutely stunning in her mint dress (that perfectly matches her mint and pink wedding theme!!)  So we met at McDonald Forest Preserve in Lake Villa and found the prettiest white trees!

Somehow by accident, we figured out that these beautiful trees would shower petals if it was gently shaken and inspiration hit!  I immediately called my husband, Michael and asked him to come and assist me.  He brought our twins, and they hung out watching videos in the back of the van while Michael put his tree shaking skills to use.  It created such a wonderfully magical effect and those were some of my favorites from the whole session!  Thanks Nicole for going along with my crazy ideas! Ha!

To say I’m excited for their big day is an understatement. They are getting married in just 25 days at the beautiful Independence Grove and we are ready!  Nicole and Josh, I can’t wait for June 15th!!
