As we drove out to Kris and Edith’s property for their engagement session a couple of weeks ago, we were immediately struck by how private and secluded their property is. Though it’s near the edge of Galena Territory, it sits tucked in the woods with acres and acres of fields, trees, and hiking areas. The coolest part? They rent this home out and it would be the most amazing getaway for a family!
Kris and Edith met in the Chicago area when Edith needed to find an accountant. She knew of Kris and knew that he was familiar with the type of business she ran (she owned a construction business at the time-how cool is that?!?). A spark ignited immediately and soon after these two were inseparable. Now they’re planning for their wedding in Galena sometime next year and we couldn’t be happier for them!
Their session was gorgeous! The weather was absolutely perfect and the fields were lush and green. We started the session deep in the woods, and then, once Edith changed into her AMAZING red dress, we took them out into a beautiful field to play in the light of the sun as it set. It was magical and we hope you love these images as much as we do!
