There’s nothing more romantic than paying homage to the city that fostered your love story! Kerri & Bart’s sun-filled engagement session does just that– from gorgeous views of skyscrapers, to showcasing the city’s perfect parks and beaches, these two clearly are in love with not only each other, but with Chicago itself. These photos perfectly capture the magic of being in love, and the unbearable excitement to share that love with the world. Xo, Danielle

It’s not easy to transform such a lively, bustling city into a quaint little town, but Amy & Joseph made it happen. And, we’re so glad they did! Xo, Danielle
