Studio + Lifestyle Engagement Photos // Amber + Emanuel

Chicago Studio Engagement Photography

Amber is a dear friend of our family…our children affectionately call her “Auntie Amber” as she has loved on them like no other!  Needless to say, it was such a joy when Emanuel proposed this past summer! After following Nakai Photography Instagram for years, Amber had a vision for her engagement photos – and it involved shooting in the Nakai Photograph studio space! We loved creating these Vanity Fair-esque pictures for them!

They changed outfits and we took this last studio photo before heading outside – Magazine cover worthy! As an engagement photographer, I love shooting in new spaces…and this was the first studio engagement session at my current studio space!

Thanks Amber + Emanuel for a wonderful shoot together! Not only did we capture some amazing photos, I’m glad we were able to spend some time together this busy engagement season!

you Chicago engagement photographer,

Kenny Nakai
