Tony and I had an engagement shoot with our friend Jim Vondruska on the last day of 2014 and it was also one of the coldest days I'd ever had to endure in my life. Timing? We know timing. We looked up several engagement photos online and we knew immediately we didn't want cheesy. We wanted natural and simple and with Jim's help, I think we achieved that! Here are some of my favorites taken around downtown Chicago.
