  • Southport Lanes Engagement :: Caitlin & Ben

  • From the moment Caitlin contacted me, I just loved her enthusiasm and obvious love for her fiancé Ben. She was adamant about shooting in a location that was meaningful to them, and suggested where they first met, Southport Lanes. I admit, I was skeptical about a bowling alley at first (I mean, most [...]
  • MCA Chicago Engagement :: Kelly & Reid

  • Since Kelly and Reid live in Washington, DC, their engagement session was first time I was able to meet them face-to-face, but they felt like old friends within just a few minutes. The day of the shoot was cold and blustery, so we explored the MCA for a bit, then ventured outside for just a few qui [...]
  • Montrose Beach Engagement :: Sharon & John

  • After a few weeks of almost non-stop rain and heavy cloud cover, I was resigned to the fact that we would be shooting this session in gloomy conditions. And, in fact, the session did start off overcast and a bit breezy. It was the kind of weather that could turn into a downpour, especially in Chicag [...]
  • Lincoln Square Engagement :: Gerrie & Mike

  • What do you do on a seriously gloomy day in the middle of summer? You laugh some, you break out the flash a bit, and, when it gets dark earlier than expected (thanks to the cloud cover), you rock out some silhouettes against the night sky. This summer's weather has been nuts, and I swear, I shot [...]
  • Milton Olive Park Engagement :: Carolyn & Jon

  • Three things to know about Carolyn and Jon: First off, they're hysterical. Since Carolyn works in my husband's department, and since I'm friends with her sister and bro-in-law, I would see her around occasionally and wave, but I've never spent a long time with her and Jon. Thank goodness for hang [...]
  • Engagement :: Martha & Alex

  • For their engagement session, we returned to Martha & Alex's old stomping grounds at Northwestern University. They showed me some of their favorite spots, I found some patches of absolutely incredible light, and we chatted about their wedding, which was coming up in just two days. A relatively stan [...]
  • Engagement :: Jessica & Josh

  • I have come to the conclusion that only awesome people have destination weddings. I've done some personal research into this topic, so the decision didn't come lightly. You see, over the past year or so, I've done a few different sessions for couples that are getting married somewhere exotic an [...]
  • Engagement :: Sarah & Matt

  • Engagement sessions in the city are always an adventure. We not only encountered heavy traffic and the typical crazy Chicagoan who stopped us to tell stories, but we also ran into someone fishing off the Riverwalk (who caught a 3ft fish!). Close off the day with a volleyball tournament at North Ave [...]
  • Engagement :: Liz & Russ

  • Liz loves Chicago, so we centered around Millennium Park. Russ loves Liz, so he smiled for pictures, even though he hates his photo being taken. That's the sign of a good guy. Posting these now, after a snow dusting, makes me miss the warm days and colors of fall. How many more days of winter? [...]
