Lindy & Brian Get Engaged in Wrigleyville!

I was super pumped when my good friend Lindy’s boyfriend Brian emailed me asking if I’d be willing to help him out with his plans to propose to Lindy earlier this month.  While there were quite a few hiccups in our original plans, it still was one of the most romantic thing’s I’ve witnessed in person.

Lindy was a little excited. :-)  Ok actually, she was so so excited she wouldn’t stop jumping!

Congratulations to a wonderful couple o’ people!



Maria & Jose’s CTA Chicago Loop Engagement Session

If there’s one thing I love, it’s clients who want unconventional locations for their portrait sessions, and Maria and Jose fit the bill.  They wanted something fun and romantic downtown, so to symbolize the new journey they’re making as they become husband and wife, I give you a CTA-themed engagement session. :-)

We of course made a few stops along the way (not everything was on or near a train!)

P.S. it was about 40 degrees out this day.  Maria is a TROOPER (and a lover of cute colorful dresses!)

Stacey & Mike’s Millenium Park Chicago Engagement Session

Stacey & Mike are getting married next May in River North in Chicago, so it was very fitting for their engagement session to be very city-oriented as well.  What a beautiful day it was!  What Stacey & Mike lack in shortness, they certainly make up in cuteness and charm. :-)  (Seriously though, I was on my tip-toes all day.)

Liz & Daniel’s Lincoln Park Engagement Nature-Extravaganza

Liz & Daniel are big-time nature-lovers and seemed a little unsure about having a Chicago engagement session – I, however, knew of the many wonders of Chicago’s Lincoln Park, and convinced them to make the trip down from Deerfield.  Here are some of my favorites from this very sweet (an very much in love!) couple:
