Monica & Dan :: Andersonville Engagement Session

Yesterday, I shot Monica and Dan’s engagement session in my/our favorite Chicago neighborhood: Andersonville! I first met these two nearly 5 (right??) years ago when I shot Monica’s sister’s wedding. At that time, Dan was a groomsmen, Monica was a bridesmaid, and they had no idea that they would fall in love and get engaged.

Monica also is the reason we can go on vacation. You see, she’s the only person in all of Chicagoland that we’d trust to watch our (many) furry babies while we’re away.

So, needless to say, I was thrilled to shoot this engagement session! Can’t wait for their wedding next May at Architectural Artifacts. In the meantime, here are some shots from our shoot!

We started our shoot at Vincent restaurant. It’s the place where Dan proposed, and we had private access (thanks to Voni). Monica and Dan’s pup, Leland, joined us for the shoot.

This is where they sat the night of the proposal!

Next, we headed to the alleyways for some more urban shots.

How cute and happy are these two?


Y’all love I know a pooch and shoe shot.
