Chicago Engagement Photographer: Gloria & Andrew

Gloria and Andrew have such a fantastic story– they went to the same college, lived on the same floor, then shared the same street… and never met.  I am such a sucker for romantic stories like theirs! We had a great time chasing a beautiful sunset during their engagement session in downtown Chicago.  They’re so…

Chicago Art Institute Engagement Photography: Minda & Garrett

When my clients wanted to dress up like Ferris Bueller and Sloane Peterson from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and asked me to document their Chicago engagement photographs inside the Art Institute, well, I couldn’t be happier or more thankful to have such fun, creative clients. It was stealth shooting inside the museum, which was certainly made easier by…

Chicago Hyde Park Engagement Photography: Kerry and Evan

I’ve known since childhood about the importance of belly laughs. When I photographed Kerry and Evan’s engagement photographs, I realized I had found a houseful of folks that love to laugh, including their dogs, but don’t dogs always look like they’re laughing? I love documenting couples instead of strictly posing them in their engagement photographs, so when Kerry…

    These are awesome photographs. I can really feel their personalities through them. They are lucky to have you photographing their weddingday. <3ReplyCancel

  • […] Kerry and Evan‘s Nico Osteria wedding photography explained one fantastic thing they have in common.  These two are in love, and they also love to laugh… something I am a big fan of, so I fell in love with them immediately.  Kerry also asked me to photograph her wedding day yoga class for her bridesmaids, which I also loved!  Their beautiful wedding had some very unique touches that said a lot about them as a couple in love.

Downtown Chicago Engagement Photography: Archana & Sean

When I think of Archana and Sean, I think of the words patient and kind.  Oh, and wickedly hilarious, which makes them even more enjoyable to be around. They live right downtown Chicago, so we photographed their engagement session in Millennium Park and outside the historic Chicago Theatre on State Street.  We also ducked inside an art installation by French artist Jean–Luc…

Downtown Chicago Engagement Session: Jennifer and Kenneth

Jennifer and Kenneth have a beautiful engagement story.  Kenneth, with plenty of patience and an eye for detail, planned a surprise scavenger hunt for his sweetheart, taking her to places that are meaningful to them, and leaving thoughtful clues.  Meanwhile, he stayed one step ahead of her.  The hunt ended at the beautiful Chicago Boarding…
