Elyse + James | Chicago Engagement Photography

Do you believe in love at first sight? Elyse and James met while standing up in a wedding for mutual friends. Their relationship took off and they never considered looking back. Elyse is passionate and fun and James is the heart of the relationship. Being the romantic that he is, James had a perfect proposal planned; he packed a special picnic and they set out on kayaks, stopping at the perfect spot for him to pop the question and celebrate with a bottle of wine and a meal. After spending one evening with them I could tell that James was head over heals for Elyse and he never stopped making her laugh all evening long. Their love is contagious and it’s revealed in their beautiful, bare-footed engagement session. I dare you to keep from smiling at Elyse and James’ photos.
