Chicago Engagement Session! Jenny + Mike!

Chicago Engagement Photos!

Jenny & Mike wanted some beautiful nature photos and they wanted to try their hand a night engagement photo shoot w/me! If you are a regular blog follower of mine, you may recall Stephanie + Marek’s killer night engagement photoshoot in Chicago’s West Loop. I was so happy that Jenny + Mike were willing to go out at night for some fun when the sun went down!

We started their nature photos up in Glencoe at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I love Jenny + Mike’s sense of style and we started their shoot off with a classic photo

But things didn’t stay serious too long as they soon made each other smile- I love real smiles in photos…and these two know how to bring out a real smile.

The Chicago Botanic Gardens have gorgeous water fountains in addition to beautiful greenery.

Love this photo of the two of them…

Night Time Engagement Photography Session in Chicago!

After getting some nature photos at the Botanic Gardens, we had a night engagement photography session in Chicago! A night photoshoot has a myriad of challenges, and it’s always fun to push the limits of photography. It’s also something different that not every wedding photographer is doing- I hope you enjoy these night photos as much as I had taking them!

I love the orange fiery light in the background of this photo

One of my favorite photos!

Jenny + Mike were great at trusting in my creative vision for their night photos!

Gotta love the lighting in these photos!

And my definite favorite from their Chicago engagement photo session!

Thanks Jenny + Mike for a great time! I can’t wait til their wedding in a few weeks! So exciting! I hope you guys enjoyed yourselves during your Chicago engagement photography session…and I hope you love the photos!

with love,
