Natalie and Jeff were SO fantastic to work with and I had such a great time with them on their Navy Pier engagement session. We started off at the Opera House and when they arrived, they looked ready for the red carpet! After a quick outfit change, we headed to Navy Pier in the hopes […]

I love downtown Chicago engagement sessions and Loren and Steve agreed that they really liked the idea of getting some great texture and views of our city. We had talked about several locations but finally settled on shooting on the river. We decided to photograph at sunset to make sure we could utilize the best light and also […]

I’m excited to share some of my favorite photos from Amanda and Blake’s Adler Planetarium engagement session! Chicago weather is always a toss up but it was the warmest day of the week and we lucked out with some wonderful light while walking around the lakeshore. Amanda and Blake got engaged at the Union League Club […]

Here are a few of my favorite shots from Aly & Andy’s session earlier this summer at Belmont Harbor. We decided to start our shoot at sunrise and the entire park was filled with fog. We embraced the lack of sun and had a great time, despite the wind and chilly temperature.

I was so excited when Natalie and Nathan proposed the idea of a picnic engagement session. They chose Humboldt Park, one of my favorite places in the city. They were a little camera shy at first but once we found our spot in the park, they enjoyed their snacks and we got great natural, candid […]

When Kimberly and Bensen pitched the idea of a holi powder shoot, I was thrilled. I’d never done a shoot like this and, save for pictures of the Color Run, hadn’t really seen it done. The colored powder got everywhere and the two of them had a blast running around the beach and eventually jumping […]

I don’t normally break engagement sessions up in two groups, but Kimberly and Bensen’s was so unique I couldn’t resist! We started off a little before sunset at 63rd Street Beach and walked around the lakefront. It’s rare that couples are so comfortable in front of the camera (especially so early in the morning!) but […]
