Lindy & Brian’s Chicago South Loop Engagement Session

Yesterday I had a great session with a couple of friends of mine – Melissa (I call her Lindy) & Brian.  I worked with Lindy for almost three years, and in sharing a very small closet-of-an-office with her, I’d say we’ve gotten to know each other pretty well!  When Brian decided it was time to pop the question, I was honored that he asked me to photograph the big event.  [Photos of that magical evening in January are here.]

Lindy & Brian are getting married later this month in a super-chic urban loft space nearby their place in the west loop.  So exciting!  The weather yesterday actually turned out quite nicely (especially considering the freezing temps and sleet/rain/whatev we experienced all week prior!)  We started the session just a couple blocks from the couple’s condo under the el tracks.

Then we traveled to Lindy’s top-secret location which we’ll be using for portraits on the wedding day.  Well, maybe not so top-secret anymore?

Next we went to the museum campus in front of the Field Museum, where they had their unofficial first date.  I wish I could retell the story well, it was so cute.

Last stop, Soldier Field.



Jesse & Luke’s Wintery Wicker Park Engagement Session – Chicago

I was excited when Jesse and Luke wanted to schedule their engagement session near their condo in the trendy Wicker Park neighborhood in Chicago… we actually started IN their condo then had a great time wandering the neighborhood!  Though I was suffering from the flu when our session rolled around, I think we came up with some great images true to their personalities. :-)

Um, I want this mural in my house!!

It’s so fun to work with couples that can’t stop staring into each other’s eyes.  So in love.

[I saved the best for last!]
