Jillian & Matthew | Engagement Session | Private Residence



Jillian and Matthew are adorable…. I mean beautiful… ummmm gorgeous! They are just too cute for words. Jillian describes how they met at the Swedish Day Festival in Geneva while in High School and Matthew couldn't stop flirting with her. I mean, can you blame him?

But it wasn't until years later did their story begin. While Jillian was driving along the river, windows down, blaring "Tangerine" from the radio. There he was, Matt, jogging along the river. So she decided to send him a "it's been awhile, just saw you jogging" text and he replied "it wasn't me but let's hang out anyway!" He took her on their first date to her favorite pizza place, she said it was the best date she'd ever been on… and so their story continues…

They were dating for 13 months before Matthew proposed. It happened on a Friday night. Jillian had just passed her Pilates test, so he took her out to dinner at Catch 35. She had no idea what he was up to, she thought a nice dinner, some cocktails, and then head home to watch "Dexter". Matthew was very nonchalant about the box he put on the table. She opened it and said there was there most beautiful dainty ring she had ever seen. She recalls it all happening so fast, after he put the ring on her finger and asked her to be his girl, they celebrated with their family and friends. "It was the best night of my life" says Jillian "Oh, and we didn't end up watching Dexter!" That part cracked me up!

Their engagement session was nice and laid back at Jillian's private residence. Of course, we always love when our couple's want their puppies in the photos, so these two cuties, Jack and Bella, got to share in the fun. Jillian and Matthew are so sweet and have such a dreamy love. The way he picks her up and smiles into her eyes… can make a girl just swoon for that kind of love!

We are so excited to be part of their wedding day! We can't thank Susan Cordogan from Big City Bride enough for sharing us with this family!

xoxo!

This was our first time photographing a wedding at the incredible Venue Six10. It is perfect venue for gourmet dining and artful entertaining! The day began with Renee and her girls getting ready at the Renaissance Blackstone Hotel Chicago Hotel while Kevin and his boys prepped for the big day at the Chicago Hilton & Towers.

Renee wore a beautiful Amsale strapless trumpet style gown made of silk razmir in diamond which has a modern flare. The back of the gown has a couture bow with a moderate train. The veil and hair piece are both from the Toni Federici line, all purchased at Belle Vie Bridal Couture on Oak Street, in Chicago. Renee's gorgeous cobalt blue glitter shoes areJimmy Choo, of course! She wore a statement necklace and simple earrings from Left Bank Jewelers.

Renee did a first look with her dad and it was incredible, so touching! It's always wonderful to see the love parents have for their children, especially on their wedding day! After Renee and Kevin's first look they went for a walk, along with their bridal party, to Grant Park, and then to the Adler Planetarium and Soldier Field where we photographed them during their engagement session.

Working with Chrissy Magliano at Big City Bride was a so comforting. Chrissy has such a calm presence and made the day flow effortlessly. We look forward to working with them a lot this year and feel so blessed to do so!

Renee and Kevin…. thank you so very much for trusting us with your wedding day! It was an amazing wedding and we are thrilled to have been part of your special day! And thank you to our lovely and dear friend, Jenn Gaudreau for second shooting with Bob. We love you so much!

Big hugs!!!
