Ed might not have been able to feel his fingers at the end of this session, but it was totally freakin’ worth it. There’s nothing like a snowy Chicago engagement session. Makaley and Jon were all snuggles on this cold winter afternoon at the Wrigley Building, but their pup was not a fan of the […]

Aileen met Sarah and Nick at Heritage Bikes and Coffee for some warm coffee – a perfect start to this cozy and super cute fall engagement session. These two were not only big smiles, but just so cuddly with each other. From there we headed to the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool near the Lincoln Park […]

Danielle and Tim are not only super adventurous, but they are such a blast to be around and know how to have a good time. Our kind of couple!! Traveling all the way from Denver for their Chicago engagement session, these two explored the West Loop with us (they got photobombed by pigeons too haha) […]

We were so bummed when we discovered that we weren’t available to capture Daiva and Tim’s wedding at Norwood Pines Supper Club in Minocqua, Wisconsin. But when they approached us to do their Chicago engagement session, we totally jumped on that because these two are sweethearts!! Not only are they just so much fun to […]

  Summertime in Chicago is the definition of perfection. There’s seriously nothing better than strolling around Millennium Park, grabbing some delicious ice cream, and watching the sunset over the skyline. And that’s exactly what Amanda and Adlun did for their engagement session! It was such a beautiful day, and Ed had a blast capturing this […]

We absolutely loved spending our afternoon with Trang, Nate, and their camera-shy pup Alma. From cuddling in bed at their gorgeous home in Lincoln Square to exploring The Dawson (THANK YOU to their amazing staff!!), we had so much fun getting to know these two better. We even shared a bottle of champagne with these sweethearts […]

We are so lucky to call Christine and Conor our good friends. Not only are they the sweetest, but they are parents to the cutest furbaby ever, Rufio! Christine is also one amazing photographer, so when we were asked to shoot a couples session for their upcoming Christmas card, we were thrilled! We had a blast exploring […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
