Lauren and Joel | Downtown Chicago Engagement Session, Wrigley Building and North Ave Beach

What happens when to Buckeyes meet in Chicago?? THIS! Lauren and Joel met through a mutual friend. Their friend decided that Lauren had to meet Joel, not only because they were both from Ohio, but because she just knew their personalities would compliment each other well. And was she right! The two met and it was almost instant. They knew they liked each other from the start and their relationship grew strong quickly. They always say, when you know, you know and it was no different for these two.

Lauren contacted me to photograph their Garfield Park Conservatory wedding, we chatted and just clicked. And just over a week later, I went to Chicago to photograph their engagement session! And I am so excited to be working with Lauren and Joel on their wedding day. It is going to be SO much fun. And since they nailed the engagement session - I just CAN’T WAIT for their wedding photos, it’s going to be a blast and Miles and I feel honored to be a part of their big day!

Chicago is always an amazing backdrop of photos, but this day was particularly perfect at The Wrigley Building and at North Avenue Beach. I couldn’t have asked for better lighting, a better couple and a better hour and a half. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do! Can’t wait for May!

Lea and Marcus | Loveland, Ohio Engagement Session

Last week you might have seen some Instagram stories of our family in Cincinnati for the weekend. We went to the zoo, swam in the pool with Grey and ate at so many Cinci staples. The reason we were there was for this session right here. This couple! Lea and Marcus are getting married at Alms Park in Cincinnati this October - and as soon as she reached out to me about their wedding, I just knew I wanted to photograph it so badly! They are just so full of love and life! And photographing the two of them as well as the charismatic Serafina was SO MUCH FUN. We walked around the Loveland bike trail and found some great spots, especially along the Little Miami River. It was full of outdoor adventure, which is fitting since Marcus is from Colorado, which is where they’ll be moving in September. So happy for this little family and I am so incredibly excited to photograph their day in October!
