Happy Friday! I wanted to share some of my favorite engagement photos with you all- captured by the amazing Lynzie of Bonphotage.  I fell in love with the film style photography she does and knew it would be perfect for capturing my vision of the wedding!  We started our photos right by Lake Michigan and the day/weather could not have been better.  I swear the whole week had been horrible weather and it was actually supposed to storm on the day we were having them done- but it held out and ended up being warm and sunny!  After shooting some by the lake, we went over to a cute little spot in Lincoln Park (right by the zoo) to film the rest.  It was so much fun, and even Matt did such a great job!  Being a blogger, I’m definitely used to shooting all the time… but Matt on the other hand is not.  He went through the entire 2 hour shoot and didn’t complain once- definitely a keeper! ๐Ÿ™‚

When I was deciding what to wear for the engagement photos, I knew I wanted something more neutral and classic, so I decided to go with two black & white looks.  This Kate Spade dress was the first thing that caught my attention when I was browsing Rent the Runway and was immediately drawn to the adorable bow on the back and the fit.  Kate Spade makes the prettiest & most feminine dresses and they always fit perfectly!  This dress would also make for an adorable wedding guest dress or a cocktail event.  I also envisioned wearing a fun tulle skirt, so when I saw this Bailey 44 white one, I knew I had to wear it.  The skirt has an elastic waistband so it’s comfortable on the waist and the perfect length.   To go with skirt, I got the Shoshanna crop top which I absolutely loved. It’s super comfortable and just the right length to accompany the skirt.  Each piece I received fit true to size, but as always, Rent the Runway lets you rent two sizes just in case!

The engagement photos definitely got me even more excited for the wedding- I can’t wait to see how Bonphotage captures the big day! xoxo

**Thank you to Lynzie @ Bonphotage for the amazing photos & Rent the Runway for the amazing outfits for this shoot <3
