I love shooting neighborhood engagement sessions and Dani & Jovim’s shoot was no exception. Oftentimes couples are nervous in front of the camera, but after only a few minutes the two were laughing and letting their personalities shine through. We made a few stops around their neighborhood, starting on their block and even made a stop at Forever Yogurt!
I just found out that I recently won a Wedding Photojournalist Association award for this photo from Amy & Joe’s Salvage One wedding! There are some great winning photographs so check them out here: http://www.wpja.com/contests/62-2014-q2-photography-contest/contest-details.html
Here are a few of my favorite shots from Aly & Andy’s session earlier this summer at Belmont Harbor. We decided to start our shoot at sunrise and the entire park was filled with fog. We embraced the lack of sun and had a great time, despite the wind and chilly temperature.
Check out Liz & Joe’s beautiful wedding from last year on the Style Me Pretty blog! They were both so creative and spent so much time on all of the little details.
Summer is here! I was so happy when Sunny and Mike suggested an urban setting for their engagement session and I love the industrial look of the West Loop. We decided to shoot at sunset so we had incredible warm light. Once everyone got comfortable in front of the camera, we had a great time goofing around and making pictures that really showed of their personalities.
Amy and Joe’s wedding was such a great way to kick off my 2014 wedding season! I had a blast with them on their engagement session and I knew their wedding would be just as fun. Neither of them are very camera shy and we had plenty of time to go around the city making pictures and enjoying the surprisingly warm April weather. After our portrait session, we headed to St. Alphonsus Catholic Church. The space was gorgeous and was followed by a great send off with guests blowing bubbles as they left. I was extremely excited to shoot my first reception at Salvage One, which is such a unique space. Congrats to you both!
