Love the colors in this engagement session w/Lauren + Michael!

The holidays are here! I’ve been working non-stop trying to get up all my shoots online before Sunday! I wanted to wish Lauren + Michael a Happy Hanukkah with their Chicago engagement photos!

Both Lauren + Michael (and their families) have a strong appreciation for the arts and I am honored to be their wedding photographer! They appreciate so much of what I do…my creative portraits, landscape portraits and my ability to capture real moments and emotions!

Chicago Engagement Photos in Lincoln Park!

Michael + Lauren have both spent a lot of time in Lincoln Park, and so it was only fitting that we took their engagement photos there! But before we headed out- we took a few photos in an old warehouse!

And as I say sooooo often…my clients are ‘normal’ people who get nervous before a photo shoot! It’s my job as your engagement photographer…to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera so you can be YOURSELF! Lauren was sooooo nervous…she was almost shaking! =) Michael was great at keeping her loose and smiling!

I LOVE their smiles! I feel their love and joy when I look at this photo!

Love this silhouette photo and the colors around them!

We climbed into an old freight elevator for this cool photo!

Love the colors and the moment-

We left the warehouse for our Lincoln Park Photos! I made sure the Chicago Skyline was in the background for this photo!

What a fun moment!

I love how their clothing colors just ‘pop’ in this photo!

And I love the contrast of their colors with the brown prairie grass! And their is so much life in their facial expressions – juxtaposed with the dormant grass-

This feels like something out of a fairy tale or a Tim Burton movie! Oddly enough…it’s just a building in Lincoln Park!

Like I said…so many fun moments throughout!

LOVE the colors! Brown hydrangeas, purple lilacs with the orange scarf and red jacket!

Getting that purple lilacs in the foreground and their great smiles in one photo!

A great photo of the engaged couple!

Last photo of the day – in front of the Lincoln Park Conservatory – one of two conservatories in Chicago!

Thanks Lauren & Michael for a great engagement photo shoot! And great idea to take photos in Chicago’s Lincoln Park- it turned out great! Thank you for opening up to me (your photographer) during this session- you guys really made the photos!

Happy Hanukkah!

with love,

your Chicago wedding and engagement photographer,
