Katie + Tim // Engagement Session // Chicago Wedding Photographer

Continuing on with the Chicago love, meet Katie + Tim!

These two laugh often and well together…and spending a few hours with them in the windy city was such a joy. We even took a little mid-session respite from the chilly temps to hop into Elaine’s Coffee Call in Hotel Lincoln for a little cup o’ joe.

The session ended up with these two snuggling under a chunky-knit blanket with the backdrop of Chicago behind them.  I just love these fall sessions!

Lauren + Lane // Engagement Session // Chicago Wedding Photographer

ac2_4294-copy

Hello Lauren + Lane! Welcome to the blog this afternoon!

As far as engagement sessions go, this one made me smile long after we were done shooting.  I adore these two!

Lauren + Lane are recent Chicago additions and are loving their new city.  Next year they are getting married in Northern Michigan and I couldn’t be more thrilled to get to work with them. Lauren has a big heart and a lot of style. Lane is easy-going, sweet and totally adores this girl.  We loved walking around chilly Chicago a few weeks back and even the rain couldn’t dampen our spirits.

Enjoy your blog preview Cuties!

Ellie + Weston // Engaged

ac2_2379-copy

Ellie + Weston.  You two little cuties!  Add in a family cabin, the perfect fall colors and a little canoe and we have ourselves the loveliest of engagement sessions.

I met these two at Weston’s family cabin a few weeks back, surrounded by bright oranges, reds and yellows of the trees and foliage. A pretty lake. And rain. Lots of misty rain. Did that derail our session? Absolutely not. In fact, if anything, it only enhanced.

Enjoy this pretty little preview of these sweet little lovebirds.

Lindsey + BJ // Engaged

ac2_8875-copy

Hi Lindsey + BJ! It’s nice to see you gracing the blog this evening!

How seriously adorable are these two? Cuteness aside, these two are the real deal.  Really in love. Really sweet. And I’m Really happy that I get to document this time in their lives!

These two are getting married next summer and even though they reside in the south, they wanted their engagement session to reflect their Michigan roots.  We shot in both downtown Grand Rapids and one of my favorite local orchards. And another huge thank you to the Grand Rapids Brewing Company for allowing us to shoot in their establishment for part of their session. Enjoy the sweetness ahead!

Carrie + Ben >> Engaged – New York, New York

ac1_6127-copy

Oh Carrie and Ben…you two have stolen my hearts!

So both of these two lovlies are from the Midwest.  They met in New York City. Are getting married in New Orleans. And just moved to Brooklyn.  They travel together, laugh together and love each other deeply. Spending time with these two reminds me once again how very much I love my job.

A few weeks ago I flew over to NYC and got to stay with a dear friend (hi Jen!) while exploring this city for the first time.  The day of Carrie and Ben’s engagement session, the skies loomed with rain.  And about half way into our session, the skies opened up and the rain poured down…just as we pulled up to start photographing at Central Park.  But rain or no rain it was one fabulous session.  We started out at the bar they met at and from there hit up some of their favorite spots…my favorite place on our NYC map was dinner at Sfolglia (anyone visiting or living there, go immediately and order one of everything) and then finishing off with a late night hot dog run.  A great first time in the city and a wonderful time getting to know these two! I am ecstatic for their wedding next year!
