Jennifer and I have been talking about her engagement photos for quite some time. She’s been collecting ideas, sending me Pinterest inspiration, and talking with me about outfit choices. I always appreciate a client who is willing to do a little planning for their photo session, and–as you’ll see from these photos–a little planning always pays off!
I met Jennifer and her fiance, James, at the bird sanctuary on Montrose Harbor. You’ve heard me say it before: this is one of my all-time favorite spots in Chicago! It’s a beautiful place to go for a quiet afternoon–and an even better spot for a photo shoot. There is so much variety in such a small space, and it feels very private.
We shot this fall-themed engagement session on a perfect fall afternoon; we really lucked out with the weather! I’m just giddy over these photos, and I sure hope that Jennifer and James are, too.
Here are some sneak peeks from our time together!
Apples, hot apple cider, warm blankets–hello, fall!
These two are SO sweet!
After a quick outfit change, we headed down to the lakefront.
In addition to all of the prairie, there’s also a great city view!
I’m in love with this light and this location and this couple!
