Liz and Mike are getting married!

I met up with Liz and Mike by Navy Pier, we had a gorgeous day with perfect weather for our photo session. Not only are they easy going and terrific company, but they have a lot of chemistry! There is no doubt that they are totally in sync and very much in love. We had a great time around Chicago as the sun was setting, and I am head over heels with the results. I am super stoked for their wedding this weekend, it is sure to be a blast-  full of creativity and awesomeness! Congrats you two!
Love this one.
We made a new little friend.
There is something so mysterious and cool about the Agora installation.
We couldn't resist a stoic pose.
Fun!
On to Wicker Park.
Lovely!

Hope and Justin are engaged!

These two are a great pair, two peas in a pod, happy and in love. They met while taking martial arts classes, and whether it was his impressive black belt skills or her amazing shoe collection, they couldn't deny the spark. Although they were nervous at first to pose for my camera, it was easy to capture their natural connection, a wonderful and tender affection for each other. They are super photogenic, and I feel that this engagement session is a great foreshadowing their wedding (just 2 weeks away!). Thanks Hope and Justin for spending an afternoon with me in Lincoln Park, I can't wait for your wedding!
Love this one!
Hope was looking good.
And so was Justin.
Then we sat in the tall grasses to finish our session, so pretty.

Kim and Joe are engaged!

Kim and Joe are cute, and oh so charming! They first corresponded online, and love quickly bloomed after only a couple of dates. We met up at the Morton Arboretum for our photo shoot, a place that holds a special spot in their relationship. Joe brought Kim here on one of their first dates, proposed to her here, and they will be exchanging vows at the Arboretum in just a few weeks! It's such a great backdrop, a beautiful landscape of wildflowers and streams. They were comfortable from the start, with natural affection in front of the camera, and we had a great time visiting some of their favorite vignettes in the park. I may have gone home with several mosquito bites but it was so worth it. I will hike through tall grasses and risk an encounter with a snake for these two! These are my favorites:

Where he proposed.
Congrats Kim and Joe, I am looking forward to your wedding!
