Engagement Photos in Chicago

Thanks to reader Thu for sharing her timeless Chicago engagement session with us today! The photos are by the lovely + talented Kate Headley. Kate is based in DC and I had the chance to meet her last year when I was in DC. She is super down to earth and really captures moments perfectly. From Thu,“We really wanted to capture different looks and have a lot of fun with it! We bought the tandem dirt cheap and Rich refurbished it with our wedding colors and date. Rich proposed in a book store so it was important to me to capture that in our photos. We weren’t sure if we were going to do engagement photos but I encourage every bride to do so! It’s such a beautiful way to capture your love, become comfortable with your photographer and have beautiful memories of your journey together!” Congrats to Thu + Rich!

By the way, my hubby has that shirt Rich is wearing, it says “I just want to ride bikes with you” – so cute! Thanks again Thu! You can see more of Kate’s work here on her blog.
