Nicki and Kyle’s Chicago Spring Engagement

It’s difficult to think of anything more romantic than a spring Chicago engagement session! And that is exactly what we did for this wonderful couple. It was a great session, full of lots of smiles, loving glances, and pure joy!

Nicki and Kyle look into one another’s eyes as though they’ve known each other their whole lives. Throughout their engagement shoot in the beautiful city of Chicago, their chemistry was undeniable. They first met through mutual friends, and immediately had a connection. Kyle first noticed how very funny, intelligent, and attractive Nicki was. Nicki was immediately drawn in as well, realizing that they had a lot of things in common and similar tastes in music and hobbies.

They make sure to keep their relationship fun and exciting with everything they do! Nicki and Kyle enjoy watching scary movies, spending time with family, going to cocktail bars or wine tastings, watching TV, spending time with their dog Bru, and trying new restaurants. According to Nicki, these two are total foodies, and they eat out way too much. Not such a big deal, though, since food makes the heart grow fonder – yes, I am convinced that is the real saying! The sweet couple also loves to travel together. Although they have never been to Europe together, they have been almost everywhere else, or at least that’s how it feels! However, Nicki and Kyle hope to expand their travel adventures as they continue their life’s journey!

There wasn’t a single moment that they knew the other was “the one”, it just came about naturally in their relationship. When you know it is meant to be, you know!

A Chicago Love Story

Nicki and Kyle chose Chicago as their engagement session location because the city is near and dear to both of their hearts. Here, they had some amazing first dates and first years dating. To honor their love of the windy city, it was only fitting that the Chicago skyline act as the backdrop to their beautiful engagement session. It was so fun getting to see these lovebirds in their element! Throughout the photo shoot, it was easy to see both the air of sophistication that they share, as well as their playful sides. Their 2018 wedding is sure to be one for the books!

Whether it’s four feet ankle-deep in mud, tenderly clasped hands, a happy tear cascading over a cheek, a hair-back laugh or a sun-drenched kiss,
