Before even meeting Kelly and Michael for their engagement shoot at the scenic Illinois Wesleyan campus I already felt like I had known them for years! Before working with a new couple I like to send a questionnaire to get a better understanding of what they want out of their engagement session and also to hear all the cute details such as how they met and their favorite things to do together…some of those being eating sweets, going to breweries, and watching movies. Their love for each other was so genuine and infectious it leapt off the page of the questionnaire. I absolutely couldn’t wait to meet them and help capture their love for each other!
Kelly and Michael are extremely competitive with each other, they actually credit an intense game of wiffle ball as the moment each of them knew that they had found the one. Kelly even likes to keep a deck of cards in her pursue in case they find a spare moment to challenge each other amongst their busy days of traveling to visit friends and family and sports activities. They both say one of their favorite things about one another is their athleticism; just don’t pit them against each other..that’s when it gets messy! One of Kelly’s favorite things about Mike is that he values and respects her; along with his caring heart. Oh and of course his beard!! Mike loves Kelly’s personality and smile; along with her core values. The couple picked a gorgeous day to take advantage of Illinois Wesleyan’s scenic campus; which is also where they often take their dog Piper on long walks. During their engagement session Kelly and Michael could not stop laughing and having fun with one another. It was clear how much they truly enjoy each other’s company and how much they can’t wait to continue to do life together.
