Golden Light with Kristin

As Golden hour struck at 6:30 PM on a GORGEOUS sunny June night, Kristin and I hit the field at McGuane Park in Bridgeport, Chicago. As the main motivation for this session was to get tacos afterwards, Kristin and I had so much fun laughing and sharing jokes as the gleaming beams of light danced across the sky and into my lens. "I've never felt this comfortable in front of the camera!" she beamed, and I couldn't have felt more content in that moment. Following my style guide, getting her hair and makeup done, and wearing a dress that made her feel like 1 million bucks, Kristin was the perfect model to have, not just due to her stunning looks, but also to her warm persona that matched the tone of the photos. Peek our session below! 

Denise and Nathan's Lincoln Park Chicago Engagement

This couple couldn't be more in love! Denise and Nathan dressed to the nines for their engagement session at the beautiful, scenic Nature Boardwalk in Lincoln Park over memorial day weekend. You can feel the love for each other and fun we had in the photos! Denise is an absolute doll; from the moment she called me for a photographer interview to the end of the shoot, she didn't stop smiling. I could even hear her beaming through the phone! Nathan is such a goof, and the two of them make the cutest pair. I can't wait for their wedding day at the Onion Pub in Lake Barrington next winter. I feel so fortunate to have the pleasure of meeting these two lovely souls, and we shared plenty of laughs along the way.
