Chicago Engagement

Claire & Scotty | Engaged!

I am so happy that Claire & Scotty found me through a previous bride of mine! They are just so genuinely themselves, nice and easy going. I remember feeling so grateful that they shared their authentic selves with me during the session. Trust is a big part of what I do if you think about it. I need my couples to feel comfortable enough to be themselves in front of my camera. It’s always heartwarming and exciting when people trust me with the task of documenting a special time in their lives. That feeling never goes away, no matter how many celebrations, engagements, or weddings I shoot. For Claire & Scotty’s engagement session we chose a beautiful park along the Fox River. They love to be outdoors and make use of their canoe - which of course they brought to the session! I always tell my couples “I want these photos to feel true to you” - so I love when we can incorporate activities that they love to do together in their every day life. I had such a nice time in the woods making these photographs of Claire & Scotty. We even got lucky with a gorgeous blanket of fresh snow. I’m looking forward to their wedding in May!

Annie & Chris | Engaged!

I am sooo glad Annie & Chris found me! They are so sweet and I love their style! Annie has amazing taste and I'm sure I'm going to have heart eyes all day photographing all the amazing details at their wedding. I can't wait to photograph every special moment for them at their rehearsal dinner and wedding this weekend. For now, here's some of my favorites from their engagement session last fall! 

Erin & Jim | Engaged!

I am so behind on blogging that this lovely couple is actually married already! But today I'm sharing images from their engagement session we did in the spring. We had a great time walking around the Chicago Riverwalk that day. Erin and Jim are total sweethearts. I figured this out not long after knowing them but the fact was solidified even further when their maid of honor and best man gave their speeches at their wedding a few weeks ago. They are the kind of people the world needs more of. I'm so glad they chose me to photograph their engagement and wedding! I can't wait to share images from their gorgeous happy wedding day, but for now I'll share a few favorites from their engagement session...
