Ashley and Ben | A classic Downtown Chicago Engagement Session

Ashley is one of the coolest girls we know. She has a laid back vibe, but is chock full of animated personality and can keep a crowd laughing for, like, forever. And, if you know her at all, you know that this girl got pipes. Ashley sang at our wedding a few years ago and her voice absolutely gives me the chills!

A Blossoming Relationship

So, when Ben came into the picture, we would see photos of these two cuties online and wonder who this new guy was that seemed to complement Ashley so well was. After proposing to her with a rose-gold, pear cut ring that I was totally drooling over, I couldn't wait to meet him and see these two together in person.

The Coolest Couple

And if the photos below don't confirm this, they are so very right for each other. Ben has impeccable style, is level headed and logical, and knows just how to make Ashley laugh. Watching him offer her his arm as they walked through the city made my heart melt a little.

A Downtown Chicago Session

Ashley and Ben styled up a dressy city life engagement session and we had a blast wandering around downtown chicago and photographing them near the Harold Washington Library and the Chicago Art Institute. We are pretty stoked about their Naperville wedding this summer, but until then, enjoy the scrumptiousness below!
