There’s something magical about taking engagement photos in a place with meaning for the couple. Take Julie and Joe, for example. She grew up right by Glencoe beach, AND it’s where he proposed. It was actually showing tons of rain for that night. But Julie had a good feeling it would pass and she was right. Although the forecast was awful all day, it was perfect weather for the time of their session and we even had a gorgeous sunset.
High School Sweethearts
Julie and Joe met in high school through mutual friends. They are the perfect example of enduring young love – they have been together for over 9 years!
Glencoe Beach Proposal
Since Julie grew up near by, this Glencoe Beach park was the perfect spot to propose. Julie says that it was a total and complete surprise – she says she almost fainted!
In Their Own Words
ALP: “How would you describe your relationship?”
Julie: “Loving, eternal, fun (we love to laugh)”
And it’s true. These two are so joyful and are all smiles when together.
A Sweet Treat
For date nights, Joe and Julie love to grab a sweet treat – any kind, apparently! But their favorite? What Julie describes as the “best ice cream ever” – Dairy Bar!
Thank you so much, Joe and Julie, for allowing me to capture this magical and meaningful engagement session. I had so much fun getting to know you!
