Katie has been planning this engagement shoot for quite a while and had her sights set on Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe. With Chicago’s very unpredictable weather, we experienced record rain the past couple of weeks, flooding most of the region. The water levels were so bad that Chicago Botanic Garden had to close to the public with their parking lot under water and some parts of the garden. We were bummed but it all happened for a reason. Katie found a back-up location, Forest Park Beach in Lake Forest which should have been the first choice! We were super excited to find this hidden gem as it provided for some amazing backdrops especially during sunset. It’s definitely not the typical Chicago beach.

I ruined a pair of shoes during this shoot but the photos certainly made it all worth while. Congrats and we’re very excited to be part of your big day at our favorite venue! See you soon!

Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool Engagement | Kate & Robert

Kate & Robert decided to do both nature and city backdrops. We started at theAlfred Caldwell Lily Pool just next to Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo and finished up in downtown by the Chicago River at one of our favorite bridges. These are both great location choices you can’t go wrong with.

While we do establish a connection with every couple we work with, Kate and Robert are truly special to us. They may represent the last chapter of weddings with a family we fell in love with more than a decade ago. They would be the 6th wedding for us with this lovely family. We can’t lie, we’ve been waiting to do this shoot for some time now. =)

Congrats guys! Cleveland rocks! See you soon!

Lincoln Park Engagement Photos | Ashley & Jimmy

Not too long ago, Jimmy proposed to Ashley and we took photos “undercover” as a surprise for Ashley. This time I got to reveal myself for their official engagement photos. It was a bit of a rainy day as we started along North Ave Beach, creating somewhat of a challenge. After an outfit change, the rain stopped and gave us enough time to get a few photos around the Nature Boardwalk in Chicago’s Lincoln Park.

Come check out Jimmy’s proposal here.

Congratulations Ashley & Jimmy! See you on the big day!

Chicago’s Museum Campus is the perfect spot for Suresh & Rachel’s engagement session. They’re wedding is taking place in Rachel’s hometown, Cincinnati OH, at the Newport Aquarium in Newport KY. Since Chicago is their new home, it’s only proper to bring some of its amazing skyline and show it off at their wedding in Cincinnati.

Congratulations Suresh & Rachel! Hope you guys have an amazing wedding day!

Shauna & Anthony chose a great spot for their engagement photos, Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool (aka Lily Pond). This is a hidden gem just inside Lincoln Park north of the zoo. It’s a great nature get-away from the busy city streets. It also made for excellent backdrops for their engagement guestbook.

Congratulations Shauna & Anthony! Can’t wait to show off your engagement photos on your big day!

Wedding Ring Tattoo | Sarah & Anthony

Crazy, unique, and breaking the trend! Sarah & Anthony decided to do exactly that as they exchanged rings at Speak Easy Custom Tattoo in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. Tattoo rings that is… While there were some anxious moments, the entire experience went pretty smooth and fun for both Sarah & Anthony. So for now, we need to let their ring fingers heal, and we’ll show off more of their wedding ring tattoos after their summer wedding. In the meantime, enjoy their amazing Northerly Island Engagement Session.

Steve has been planning and waiting for this day for a very long time. He contacted us many months ago, excited to plan his proposal and engagement session. Although we weren’t there to witness his exciting surprise proposal, we’re excited to have shot their engagement session. They chose a location where you can’t go wrong, the Chicago Botanic Garden. It was chilly but our timing was perfect for the sun’s angle and bright golden colors. There are endless spots for photos, but here are some of our favorites.

Congratulations Steve & Aimee! We’re excited for your big future ahead!

Naperville riverwalk in Centennial Park is probably one of the best places for a fall engagement or wedding photos. It features many traits that help make for vibrant backgrounds. I’m so glad that Lauren & Michael chose this place for their very fun engagement shoot. Lauren’s goal was to have a classy sleek look surrounded by a city park feel. We certainly have the perfect location and the perfect couple to pull this off. Lauren & Michael have also known each other since middle school, so needless to say, we also have the chemistry for some great photos.

It was fun to see everyone again and we can’t wait for the big day!

Northerly Island is Sarah & Anthony’s most favorite spot in Chicago (and their dog’s favorite place to play too) so it was only fitting to do their engagement photos there. While it’s not a frequent spot for photos, it certainly brings a fresh and different perspective of Chicago’s skyline. There’s plenty of walking commitment but once you get past that, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular backdrops. We did get pounded with strong lakefront winds and I myself got caught in a wave with gear at hand, but the golden sun made up for that sacrifice.

Thanks for roughing it out Sarah & Anthony! See you next year! Same time, same place!

Jessica & Joel live in the city so it was important to take some photos at their favorite spots. LaSalle St bridge was an important landmark as it reminds them of home. We also took some time to get some fun shots under the L to get a little more of that “local” backdrop. We also spent time along the Chicago Riverwalk, another one of their daily paths around the city. Congratulations on your engagement, we’re looking forward to the big day next year!!!
