Chloe and Zach… ohh, where do we even begin with these two?! We got to FaceTime these two a few months ago right after they inquired with us, and we seriously hit it off RIGHT away! Immediately after that FaceTime call, these two booked us as their wedding photographers, and we were off and running! One of the first steps in our Wedding Experience is planning our couples’ engagement sessions with them, and it’s always amazing when everything comes together in a way that fits our couple perfectly and that honors their relationship beautifully. Y’all, that’s exactly what happened when we were planning Chloe and Zach’s engagement session… Chloe instantly pointed out that one of the locations in the Engagement Guide all of our sweet couples receive was meaningful to them. So, the decision was made… and we were headed to Starved Rock to celebrate their engagement!!

These guys have the sweetest kind of love. You can tell just from being around them a little while that their love is strong, steady and full of a deep-rooted joy. It just radiates from them whenever they interact, and we loved that about these two! They were up for anything during their shoot with us… and that may or may not have included walking through water to get to the second to last location you’ll see when you scroll down to the bottom of this post 😉 I think you all will agree that it was TOTALLY worth it… even if I stepped in a bunch of water while I was shooting!!

Chloe and Zach, you guys are seriously the cutest! Thank you for adventuring all over Starved Rock Lodge with us and for inviting us into this sweet season of life called being engaged. 🙂 We hope you absolutely adore this little peek into your engagement session, and we already cannot WAIT to send over the rest of your beautiful images really soon… yay!!

Xoxo!
