Chicago Engagement Session | Laura & Brian

I met up with Laura, Brian, and their sweet girl, Dottie, in their adorable apartment in the city for their sweet Chicago engagement. We roamed around the neighborhood, hit up the beach, Laura's work rooftop that overlooks the beautiful Chicago skyline, and ended at the very bar Laura and Brian first met! 

These two are so sweet and I had such a great time getting to know them! Can't wait for their Chicago wedding this Ocotber!

Starved Rock Adventure Session | Halie & Tyler

Halie and Tyler answered our Starved Rock model call a couple months back. They were a perfect fit for what we were looking for! They are adventurous and fun and take a beautiful photo! 

I met up with them at Starved Rock State Park in Oglesby, IL at the beginning of June. These two came all the way from Newaygo, MI!  It was such a HOT and humid day but these two hiked with me for a couple of hours and were such troopers! It was so great to get to know Halie and Tyler. Their love for each other was so sweet and they made my job that much easier! 

Congrats to this wonderful couple on their recent engagemnt!!

Jessica & Tyler {St. Patrick's Park}

We met Jessica & Tyler at the Bread & Chocolate Bridal Show in Goshen, IN a month ago. They were drawn for our engagement session giveaway. We met up at St. Patrick's County Park in South Bend, IN. The sun was out alllll day until about 10 minutes before our session! Luckily the rain held off and we roamed around the park as I captured these two sweet love for each other!

These two are such wonderful and kind human beings! There love for each other was so evident the moment I started snapping! It was a complete joy photographing these two! 

Scott & Jen | Four Winds Field

Scott and Jen were married on a crisp fall day in October. The day started with a torrential downpour and ended with an equally impressive torrential downpour.

Their ceremony was meant to be outdoors, but as the day transpired, there was some certainty that an outdoor wedding just wasn’t going to be possible on this day.

To most couples, this would be devastating, but Scott and Jen, and the rest of their family and friends embraced it all. They embraced the rain. They embraced the changes they had to make for their ceremony. But more so, they embraced every last moment. And despite the gloomy day, nothing could diminish the love that shined so BRIGHT between these two wonderful humans, who managed to find each other in this crazy world.

It was a perfectly, imperfect day, and we were so darn grateful to be a part of it.
