wedding wednesday - engagement photos sneak peak.

h and i really lucked out with our wedding photographer. not only did dawn include an engagement session in our photo package but she was patient with us while i changed clothes, climbed on train tracks in heels and rode our bikes in the mural filled alleys. i adore these photographs and i am certain that they will always remind me of chicago, our west town neighborhood and the summer that we were engaged... 





 a HUGE thank you to the talented dawn roscoe for taking these gorgeous photographs. if you are getting married in chicago or need a photographer for any reason i would highly recommend dawn!
