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…

  • […] 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…
