Kate and Stephen both got there PhDs in engineering from Northwestern University in Evanston. It’s also where they got engaged! So, when it came time to figure out where we should shoot their engagement session, it was a pretty easy decision. Northwestern’s beautiful campus is proving to be a popular photo spot this year!
Our first couple attempts at a photo shoot got rained out. However, this past weekend, the weather cleared, and–even though it was still a little chilly–we decided to go through with the session! I’m glad we did. The hazy cloud coverage made for great light, and the campus was in full spring bloom. It was gorgeous!
Here are some sneak peeks from our time together.
I love the bright red jacket, bright blue dress, and bright green trees!
Couldn’t decide which of these I loved more. So… Also, the next few photos are SOOC (straight out of the camera). No editing at all–that’s how good the light was!
Sorry, you two. I had to post this one! Always the perfect gentleman, Stephen helped Kate touch up her lip gloss between photos!
Of course, I love to catch couples giggling, snuggling, and stealing little moments with each other. Sometimes, it can be difficult to coax that out of people in front of the camera. However, these two were so naturally sweet and affection–makes my job easy!
As they were walking to the spot where Stephen would propose, they passed this rock. Minutes later, Stephen popped the question himself!
