Loren and Steve’s Downtown Chicago Engagement Session

I love downtown Chicago engagement sessions and Loren and Steve agreed that they really liked the idea of getting some great texture and views of our city. We had talked about several locations but finally settled on shooting on the river. We decided to photograph at sunset to make sure we could utilize the best light and also miss some of the rush hour traffic. Here are some of my favorites and I’m looking forward to your wedding in October!

Conor and Ian’s Home Engagement Session

I don’t often get the opportunity to photography people in their homes so it was a real treat when Conor and Ian asked to do a home engagement session. They said that they realized through the wedding planning process that they’re not entirely traditional when it comes to certain aspects and really liked the idea of some photos of them living in their space. I couldn’t agree more! It’s always nice to do something a little different and also in a place where everyone can feel really comfortable in front of the camera.

From the start they both had great banter together, and while they made and ate lunch, it was easy to see what a great match they are!
