On Katelin and Dan’s first date, they went to the famous “Bean” statue and then to Gino’s East in downtown Chicago, so choosing Millennium Park for their engagement session was the perfect way to tell how their love story began. From that day on, a tradition began where each year, Katelin and Dan would go back […]

I knew I loved these two from the first time I met them, but their Chicago engagement session truly confirmed that they are one amazing couple! It was raining pretty hard that entire morning and afternoon, so like I do with all of my clients, I gave them 2 options: cancel or wing it! And […]

As I walk in the door to Gotam’s family home, I am greeted with hugs and escorted to the garage where his parents were hosting the prayer ceremony (also known as Graha Shanti) for Gotam and Shveta.  As everything was getting set up, their family members quickly began to gather around the couple who sat […]

Erin and Dave really wanted the gorgeous fall leaves for their engagement session, so they opted to wait until after their wedding to do their engagement session! While it’s not the traditional route, I loved this idea!  It was so much fun to see them again after their wedding day, talk about their new pup […]

Kevin and Cara are two incredibly smart and sweet Med school students who are crazy in love.  I don’t always get to talk to the groom as much as the bride before the engagement session, but I was so happy to talk to the both of them over the phone during our initial phone consultation. […]

Often times you’ll find one amazing concept and you’ll roll with it.  This Valentines Day inspired session was that concept. It was my […]
