St. Charles, IL Engagement Photography | Brendan & Emily

I had the wonderful privilege of photographing my first proposal last month, and let me tell you, it was pretty darn amazing.

Brendan spent three months (correct me if I’m wrong here, Brendan!) planning the event with the help of friends and family. It was quite a thing!EmilyBrendanProposal_016.jpg
