Call me crazy but I LOVE LOVE LOVE sunrise sessions! I'm not a morning person at all, but the lighting is so worth it!
Im so glad Jordan & Joe were up for it!
Jodan, you're gorgeous!!
One of my favs!! <3
Another fav right here. So Chicago!
Jordan & Joe, I can't wait to capture your wedding day!!
I'm so excited to share this session! Sarah and Jake are SO much fun to be around! Hanging out with them last week made me so much more excited to shoot their wedding this fall!
Sarah & Jake, thanks for being so awesome! See you in October!!
I had such a blast with Marissa and TJ last week! We met up at Cantigny Park for some engagement photos.
I am so excited to photograph their wedding this fall!
Meet Vicky & Jesse!
They are getting married next July.
We headed out to a farm out in Schaumburg that provided us with some beautiful scenery and light.
Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session!
I had a great time with Erica and Scott during their engagement session! They decided to go with Arlington Park Race Track because it's a very special place for them (not to mention beautiful!). Erica's family has horses that race there and have been going frequently for many years!
How cool that the mascot had a Batman cape... and Scott just so happened to be wearing his Batman shirt!
Erica, you are so gorgeous!
Can't wait to see you guys again in September!!
Meet Tim and Andrea.
I am lucky enough to be documenting their wedding this September. We headed to The Morton Arboretum for some engagement photos.
Tim knows exactly what to say to make Andrea laugh!!
Andrea looks so fierce here!
Meet Catherine and Joe. I am fortunate enough to photograph them again for their wedding this August!
They were such troopers, it was SO cold and windy that morning! On the bright side, they did get to snuggle a lot to keep warm, and Catherine has the most AMAZING wind hair I've ever seen.
You'll see what I mean in a minute ;)
See this spot? This is where Joe proposed! Well done, Joe!!
See what I mean below? So obsessed with that hair!
See you two in August!!!
I'm so excited to share Christina & Alana's sunrise engagement session!
I know what you are thinking... why in the world would someone want to do a session at 5am? Well, I'd say that 90% of my sessions in downtown Chicago are at sunrise, or pretty close to it. I am able to get shots with beautiful soft light without having to worry about other people in the background of my photos; which is usually the case in the evening. My clients are awesome enough to trust me when it comes to things like this. ;) Although, this time, it was the other way around. Christina and Alana were the ones who suggested a sunrise session. This was the spot where they had their first date. Christina invited Alana to go watch the sunrise with her over Lake Michigan, and the rest is history. I absolutely love it when couples choose locations that are part of their story. And, let's face it, this setting so romantic!
Then the sun peeked out from behind the clouds and allowed me to capture this beautiful silhouette!
And then, five minutes later, because it's Chicago... it rained! But we went with it!!
Kissing in the (sunny?) rain... Seriously, how could you not love these two?
Then we walked back to the harbor for a few more shots.
Christina & Alana, I can't WAIT to see you two in a couple of months for your wedding!
I had such a great time with Lauren and Jeremy over the weekend. They are such a cute couple, and I love the way Jeremy is always making Lauren laugh!
Here are some of my favorites from the session.
Love this sequence!
One of my favs
Seriously... how cute are they??
Lauren & Jeremy began dating in high school. Back then, she made him a ring. How cool is that? the ring she made him + the ring he proposed with. :)
Ok.. I couldn't decide.. which do you like better? Color, or black and white? ;)
Lauren & Jeremy, see you in June!
