Sarah and Jeff, who are getting married at a vineyard in Northern California next year, are celebrating their engagement with photos in one of the cities that serves as home base for their long distance love.
Though Sarah spends most of her time in LA for graduate school, Jeff lives in the West Loop, and it’s a neighborhood that’s close to their hearts. So, we started their engagement session at the French Market, wandered around some colorful spots in the West Loop, and ended over by Kinzie St bridge.
They came to the shoot prepared, having already scouted out a ton of colorful walls and street art. That allowed us to work pretty quickly, hitting up a lot of spots.
Here are some photos from our time together!
We had some great light when shooting at some of Sarah and Jeff’s favorite haunts.
A quick outfit change and Uber ride later…
I shot Shelby and Zack’s engagement session a couple years ago, and I’ll never forget it. It was in the midst of a blizzard, y’all.
So, I was really happy when they contacted me to shoot their maternity session, and I was confident that we’d have better weather!
Even still, we wanted to pay homage to their engagement session, which they loved, by shooting in the same spot.
We worked the beautiful views at the park, and then they quickly changed outfits (behind a bush) for a more beachy vibe.
Here are some photos from our shoot. Less snow, more belly–just as special! Congrats, you two!
Shelby still teaches a Saturday morning yoga class. SHE IS A ROCKSTAR!
I’m loving the beachy vibe for maternity photos, lately. And Shelby and Zack were such champs–totally willing to get in the water!
Brenda and Geoff are engaged, getting married in July, but they wanted to share their engagement session with Geoff’s son, Ethan.
So, I met the three of them in Lincoln Park for a family + engagement photo shoot, and it couldn’t have been sweeter.
Here are some photos from my time with this adorable family–and one very loving couple.
How cute are they?
I love the way Geoff is looking at his son in this one.
Someone is ticklish!
Happy wedding, Brenda and Geoff!
