James and Mia’s Downtown Chicago, Engagement Adventure Session

Mia and James are the cutest pair, and are always such a joy to be around. From our initial meeting, Mia was glowing and gushing about her relationship with not only her future husband, but her joyous family who will be attending their 2019 wedding. After spending the day playing around at the Game Room, shooting in Millennium Park, and drinking margaritas at Broken English Taco Bar, I can see why. The love between the pair radiated through the camera onto all of those who interacted with us that day. From the staff at the Chicago Athletic Club to the waiters at Broken English, everyone was wishing the pair congratulatory luck, and mirrored the smiles that these two shared the entire evening. I am eagerly anticipating our next shoot, which will be on their big day. Get a sneak peek of their love below!

Mary and Patrick’s Garfield Park Conservatory, Chicago Illinois Engagement  

Mary and Patrick are the cutest pair! The two were planning their wedding in Michigan when they asked me to photograph their love a year prior to the event. Of course, I was over the moon to meet this giddy, playful pair! Mary came to the session wearing this yellow dress that I may end up stealing from her, and Patrick was dressed to the nines for their rainy day indoor session. Take a look at the photos below to see how we created a sunny environment in the cold and rainy Chicago weather. We were all laughs the entire time 😊

Janet + Trent’s Museum Campus Chicago Engagement Shoot

Janet and Trent are the definition of #couplegoals. The two met in College, and stayed together through the years and trials of dating long distance. From Champaign onward, the two dated and eventually moved in together. Trent popped the question while Janet was teaching in Chicago, and the love between these two was cascading into their photos during their Museum Campus engagement session. As we braved the first bitter cold day of the year, along with raging Chicago winds, the pair were cheery and kind every step of the way. Check out their gorgeous engagement photos below!
