JENNY & PETER IN STUDIO

Aren’t Jenny and Peter the most gorgeous couple!? I first worked with this beautiful duo on their Public Hotel Chicago rehearsal dinner last summer and have been wanting to photograph them again ever since.

WEST LOOP ENGAGEMENT

There isn’t anything that could take away the glow Emily and Danny have when they are around each other, not even a little rain. After the Chicago weather threw us for a loop with rain sweeping in every other hour, these two weren’t about to reschedule their session. Instead, they decided to wait out the rain (champagne in […]

Romantic Restaurant Engagement Photos

I love letting my couples choose the location for their engagement session. Lauren and Jordan wanted to photograph at their favorite neighborhood spot, The Trencherman in Wicker Park. A dark, quiet spot reminiscent of the 1920s, perfect for a romantic little date night. A glass of champagne for her, and a beer for him, and they […]
