Just in time for the 4th of July, we have an engagement that is infused with love and some good old fashion sparklers. Because, really, who doesn’t love sparklers, or love for that matter? I’m President of the Love and Sparklers Fan Club and I happen to think this sweet engagement captured by Ashley Biess Photography¬†should be our anthem. See more from these two firework wielding love birds right here.

From Ashley Biess of Ashley Biess Photography Emily and JT had so much fun with their engagement photos! As residents of Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood, they wanted to wander around the streets, park, and beach near their home to show friends and family members where they will be starting their new life together. Emily used Pinterest as inspiration for outfit and prop ideas for the shoot. The couple came to their session prepared with sparklers, a cozy blanket, bubbles and pinwheels. What more could a photographer want? They are super playful and so obviously in love. It was a real treat taking their photos!
