christine&ryan|engaged // pottawatomie park, st charles

christine&ryan found us by way of one of our favorite couples, tina&charlie. i just love how our network is growing! we hit up the fantastic pottawotamie park (try saying that 3 times fast!) that runs right along the waterfront in st. charles. and in true chicago fashion, the wind was as blustery as ever!

but i won’t lie – my absolute favorite part of this session was the adorableness that is their dog bailey. she is hands down one of the sweetest dogs i’ve ever met, and completely attached to christine&ryan! as gorgeous as these two are together, i have to say miss bailey might have just stolen the show! we’re so pumped for their october 2011 wedding!

and sidenote: we LOOOOVE when people bring their pets to sessions!! please bring your dogs so i can play with them! 😀












isn’t she fantastic? by the end of the session she was a total pro.






this was miss bailey’s favorite place to be. smack dab between mom and dad and wherever they were standing!



song credit: she will be loved by maroon 5

    What wonderful shots of the married couple to be. Christine, we've never met, but I work with Ryan. You are truly blessed to have Ryan become a part of your life. All the best, and may you both savor your time together.

    Great pics!! Bubba's thoughts during photoshoot may have been something like this,
    "I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is. "

    Congrats! Enjoy the wedding ride!
