Oh man! All I can say to start is that Fay and Jacob are absolute rock stars. They braved the INSANELY cold weather for their engagement session. By the end of the session, it was sleeting, and the wind was blowing so hard I thought we were all going to get frost bite. But we didn’t! We made it through - and it was all worth it because the photos in Chicago are always some of my favorites.
I met Fay in August, when she won my raffle prize at Bride Vs. Bride. And I am so glad that we were available to photograph their wedding day! I absolutely LOVED taking their engagement photos, they are so much fun and should probably give up their day jobs to become models, I mean seriously!
September is going to be here before we know it and I cannot wait to capture their day!!

Stacy and Jeff | Engaged | Lincoln Park Engagement Session

I can’t believe that November is almost over and we’re just a month away from Christmas. This year has gone by so fast. Today’s post brings you a little bit of fall again. I went to Chicago to photograph Stacy and Jeff’s engagement session on one of the last days there were leaves on trees, even though it was around 25 degrees outside.

We strolled around Lincoln Park and chatted about our love for Hallmark Movies, True Crime Podcasts (thanks for the recommendation on Mile Mark 181 Stacy, LOVE IT!) and of course, THE OFFICE. I can basically find anything in real life that reminds me of something that Michael Scott or Dwight did in The Office - and I am so glad they both got it!

I am so excited to photograph their wedding at Loft 310 in Kalamazoo next June! It is going to be such a beautiful day full of neutrals and greenery - my two favorite words!
