{ENGAGEMENT} LOVE AT LYMAN WOODS…

the bride to be had lived in Scotland for a few and loved and missed the forest backdrop so they chose Lyman Woods, near Chicago, as their backdrop.

super excited to have the work of Kristine Yarcho from

MADE TO BE MINE

on the blog again with this engagement session.

from Kristine:

How blessed am I that Victoria and Xavi found me…such a gorgeous couple with an impeccable sense of style.  When we first discussed a location, Victoria just mentioned her love of the outdoor, natural feel of my photos.  So we went with a central location in a foresty, woodland wonderland.  When Victoria told me she was going to bring a formal red dress, as a contrast to the rugged outdoors, I was THRILLED.  What happened was beyond my wildest dreams.  What I think is so special about this session is the MAGIC that spills out of it.  That’s all I can think about when I look at these photos.  not only did they look stunning, I mean…Victoria in that DRESS…but they are SO. IN. LOVE.  They almost made me cry at the end of our session when Xavi scooped Victoria into his arms and sang to her as they slow danced…at sunset…that was how our night ended.  Xavi and Victoria also had a more casual look and somehow it almost blended them with the colors of the nature around them….I love the look of both sets of photos.

I truly think that my work changes and grows with each session, but this one really took my breath away.  I think it was just a lot of perfect moments…from the field of bluebells to the endless laughs…beauty was everywhere. “

you just must check out more from Kristine on MADE TO BE MINE’S BLOG.
