Kate & Matt Engagement

Kate & Matt Engagement

Katie & Matt’s engagement session took place on a rather frosty Chicago day. Despite the cold, Katie and Matt laughed and chatted happily throughout our shoot. These guys had great chemistry together, and it really made my job easy – I love it when I can just let a couple be themselves!
