The Woodstock, Illinois Engagement of Jamie & Kyle

It was my first time working on the square in Woodstock, Illinois and to say I was excited is an understatement. I was born and raised in Woodstock until the summer before my 8th grade year. I have fond memories of the movie theater, the restaurants, the way the lights sparkled during the holiday season as the snow fell, the egg rolls from Chop Suey Hut. It is a magical little town and having Jamie and Kyle’s engagement session on the square fit their love story perfectly.

These two met in Woodstock, Illinois as their mutual friends brought them together. Kyle enjoys true crime documentaries and Jamie loves to travel. Kyle is more of an iced coffee guy while Jamie prefers the strong stuff. We wandered the square and soaked up the summer sun. While it was a bit warm that evening, it was still so very enjoyable. We talked about their jobs as teachers and how the planning of their Boxed & Burlap wedding was going.

The square in Woodstock has picturesque spots every five feet and I think that’s what makes this location so fun. You could easily photograph a different couple here and get a whole different set of images. The store fronts are quaint and the brick provides such unique colors. It really was a fun experience and one I hope to do again.

I can not wait for their wedding next June! It’s going to be absolutely beautiful.
