Alison and Mike are high school sweethearts! They’ve been together for 11 years (amazing!!), and they’re planning the most beautiful summer wedding in August of 2022! Mike is an incredibly smart guy who works in IT, and Alison is a nurse with a heart of gold! These two are delightful, and we spent their session laughing and dancing around in the MOST GORGEOUS light! We started their session in Cantigny’s beautiful gardens, and then as sunset approached, we headed to a nearby natural area for a little sunset picnic. One thing I loved is that Alison has kept a box of memories of their relationship over the past 11 years — and she brought it with for me to incorporate into their session! Ticket stubs to Hawks games (YES), Bears games, movies, concerts, weekend passes… so many beautiful memories, shared between the two of them! These two are FUN and WONDERFUL and we can’t wait for their Independence Grove wedding next summer!!
