Tina and Pete live in Beijing, China, and are getting married next year at Ravenswood Event Center!! So we couldn’t think of a better backdrop for their engagement session than in the city that they currently call home. From 798 Art Zone (798艺术区) to the nearby Hutongs (衚衕), we had so much fun exploring the alleys of Beijing and getting to know these two. They are seriously such incredible people! Aileen can’t wait to see these two again on their big day in March!!

Here are some of our favorites from Tina and Pete’s Beijing China engagement session!

Ian proposed to the love of his life on December 30th at Lincoln Park Zoo, and we were lucky enough to capture it! Whenever we photograph a surprise proposal, we always arrive 15-20 minutes early to scout the location and come up with the perfect game plan. Aileen hid next to an employee entrance, and Ed pretended to be an employee taking stock of the foliage…at night ahaha! And it worked! She had no idea!! From the heartfelt proposal and happy tears to the celebratory ferris wheel ride, we had so much fun documenting this unforgettable moment for these two! Congrats!!

Miles from Cape Cod, we captured the beginning of a new chapter of Kelsey and Jay’s love story on the land they will one day build their forever home. As these two plan on breaking ground within the next year, we used a miniature, handmade version of their future home in celebration of this beautiful adventure. Kelsey and Jay are insanely creative and downright the sweetest couple ever. Be sure to check out Kelsey’s work at The Wired Life! These two met in middle school, reconnected later in life, and now are getting married this September in Fryeburg, Maine at Hardy Farm. We can’t wait for their big day!!

One of the most authentic and sincere couples we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know were married in an intimate ceremony at A New Leaf on 4th of July weekend. Surrounded by 60 of their closest friends and family (this was the first time in Chicago for many of the guests!), Cori and Tyler vowed to love each other fiercely and forever. We feel so lucky to have been able to capture such a beautiful celebration! And even though there was a slight hiccup with a tow truck (LOL!!), this wedding couldn’t have been more perfect.

Here are some of our favorites from Cori and Tyler’s A New Leaf Chicago wedding!

When we first met Michelle and Michael earlier this year, we spent nearly two hours just chatting about life and adventure. We absolutely adore these two! And during their engagement session, it was like hanging out with old friends. Michael was still recovering from a skateboarding accident a week or so before, but that didn’t stop him from hugging Michelle and having an amazing time. We started at the super cool Dave’s Records in Lincoln Park before heading to North Avenue Beach just in time to see the sunset. These two are so perfect together! We had a blast capturing their love and super fun personalities. Their wedding this October at Room 1520 is going to be ridiculously epic. We can’t wait!
