So excited to share these fun Chicago engagement photos! This one of the last photos from the session, but I love the moment…and the mixture of urban and nature! If you were looking for a proposal or engagement photographer…send us a message!

We started in Lincoln Park…with a little bit of fall colors in the background!

We took plenty of “looking at the camera” photos…but I really enjoyed all the fun moments!

I don’t think Zack was expecting this…but he was a good sport! Nothing says “fun Chicago engagement photos” like spontaneous moments!

Decided to go a little Ansel Adams with a black and white nature picture

Photographer’s insight: Amanda and Zack are in the perfect spot where the buildings don’t block them! Also wanted to include the Navy Pier Ferris wheel!

Madison Engagement Photos // Olbrich Botanical Gardens

Madison Engagement Photos // Olbrich Botanical Gardens

It was a beautiful day in Madison for Sarah + Keith’s photoshoot! We were treated at the end with a perfect sunset over the water! Be sure to scroll down to see our favorite 14 of their Madison engagement photos! Though I am located in Chicago…if you were needing a Madison engagement photographer – contact me as I am always happy make the short drive!

Madison engagement photos

Photographer’s Tip: Sometimes you get lucky – love the double sun flare in this picture! (Not photoshopped) We got lucky with a perfect reflection off the water!

Madison engagement photos

Olbrich Botanical Gardens is stunning space – So many colors, textures and layers to work with!

Madison engagement photos

I’ve known Sarah her whole life…and in fact her parents have known me for my whole life! From being the RING BEARER at their wedding…to photographing the wedding of their daughter…what a wonderful circle of connections!

This spot was just along a walkway, but the colors, layers and textures were to much to pass up! Not to mention the perfect moment!

Madison engagement pictures

One of the best parts of being an engagement photographer…is to see the real smiles and laughs as they share a little bit about themselves with me!

One of my favorite Madison features: The lakes!  You can’t go wrong with a setting sun over water!

Sarah + Keith! It was so great to capture your Madison engagement photos! It was wonderful to catch up and get to know you both better! Can’t wait until your wedding next year!

Allen Centennial Garden + Tenney Park Engagement Photos

Allen Centennial Garden Engagement Photos

We headed up to Wisconsin for our first photoshoot in Madison for Ilana + Yonatan! Before their Tenney Park engagement photos, we started their session on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus! Nestled between dorm halls and research laboratories was this cute little garden space! Though we are located in Chicago, if you know anyone looking for an engagement or proposal photographer – contact us!
