Whitney and RW Engagement Preview

It’s amazing that we weren’t carried away by the swarms of mosquitoes last night…but it sure did make for an adventure. We had pages of books flying through the sky, trees crocheted with vibrant reds, blues and yellows, bikes zooming all around, and a lot of laughs as we all endured the itching and twitching from the bugs. Enjoy a little taste of this engagement session with Whitney and RW. I’m looking forward to their wedding in October!

Laura and Dan Engaged

Laura and Dan came out to Aurora for their engagement session a few weekends ago and we laughed…and laughed…and laughed… What a fun couple! I think you will see the joy that they have being together just from taking a look at their images. With a lot of family “themes” running through their wedding, they each brought a photo of their parents at just about the same moment in their weddings (walking back down the aisle as a newly married couple). I thought this was a great thing to bring to the shoot, and love the images of these two showing off those photos. Shelby (Laura’s dog) also came along for the ride, and she was a perfect model. Enjoy!

Katie and Scott . Chicago Engagement Session

When we first met I remember thinking how fun it was going to be to photograph Katie and Scott’s engagement and wedding…they are just fun people to be around. We all met up on a Saturday evening in front of the Art Institute of Chicago and began our photo excursion. Even though there was still quite a chill in the air, these two were amazing in front of the camera. I cannot wait until their wedding in July… Thanks Katie and Scott for allowing me to document this part of your love story!

Hey,
I was wondering if you would share the location of the white wooden… I guess the best way I could describe it is an “artistic gazebo”? I would love to check it out.
Thanks!

Brittany, this is the south pond pavilion at Lincoln Park Zoo! Have fun checking it out!

Ayme and Court Engaged

This post makes me so ready for Spring here in Chicago! Ayme and Court were so much fun to work with, and the New Orleans weather was fantastic. We did a lot of laughing and walking in the City Park, and then headed to the French Quarter before they headed back home. I am looking forward to their wedding in May! Enjoy these shots from their session… Thanks Ayme and Court for such a fun time in the Big Easy.

Corina and Miles Engaged

Corina and Miles love to take road trips. So they packed up their car and left Delaware to come out to the midwest for their engagement session. It was so great to finally meet them, and spend the day capturing some beautiful photographs.

We waited out the rain that threatened our mid-morning shoot at one of my favorite breakfast spots in Aurora, Harner’s Bakery. After the rain moved out, and we had our fill of breakfast, it turned out to be a beautiful day.

Corina had so many details that she had already thought through. Their wedding (September 5, 2010) is going to be held at Ambiance Antiques, an antique store in San Francisco. She had already planned for the guys boutonnieres to be designed out of buttons, so they stopped and bought a large jar of buttons at an antique store. They added a lot of fun to our last destination.

Miles is in the United States Air Force, so I loved the little detail of the plane pins on her skirt. I look forward to showing the photos of their wedding! I know they have a lot of great stuff planned.
