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!

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!!
