A sunrise rocky mountain engagement session. Beautiful, adventurous couple who is seriously in love. Could we possibly ask for more? Well, maybe that it wasn’t 5 below zero… that would have been nice. But no one is complaining now… Our adventures brought us to Colorado this past January to shoot this session where we were […]

It’s not every day that a couple comes to us and says “we’ll do whatever you want.” When Matt and Natalie said those very words to us, the first thing we thought of is: A) We love them. B) Let’s do a session where we can encourage them to have a drink. C) Let’s also have […]

Chicago is amazing. This city offers just an incredible array of backdrops – the skyscrapers, the beaches, the unique parks, the urban jungle – making it an ideal place for pictures.  One of our favorite spots for an engagement session has come to be the Montrose Bird Sanctuary. It has the gorgeous backdrop of the lake and […]

This Chicago Engagement Session just blew us away. Literally and figuratively. The light was perfect, the wind was just right and the waves were crashing onto the concrete shore of Lake Michigan. Melissa and Tom, who have known each other since junior high (can you believe that?!) were so much fun. Seriously, that phrase isn’t […]

When we were first contacted to photograph Kris’ surprise Chicago proposal to Sam, we were ecstatic. It’s not every day that someone trusts you with capturing a proposal. In fact, this was officially the first proposal we have photographed. Unfortunately, the plan Kris laid out had to quickly be scratched as the Bean sculpture had […]

Summer garden engagement sessions are wonderful. When the garden has a trampoline, the session is even more fun. Trey and Kylie were so much fun as we explored Hamstra Gardens, a hidden gem in Northwest Indiana. Their wedding is next summer which seems so far away, but we know it will be here in the blink […]

When Matt & Julia (currently Chicago residents) told us they wanted an engagement session not typical of the city, we jumped at the chance to utilize a location that we love. Steelworker Park is the remains of the old US Steel Complex known as South Works and once was a leader in providing the steel not just for […]

We cannot stress it enough: we LOVE Chicago. We’re true midwestern girls at heart – between the two of us, we’ve traveled to most of the major cities across the US and several around the world and this fact remains: Chicago is our kind of town. So when Vince and Daria wanted to do their […]

There are so many variables that go into making a good engagement session – some we have control of and some we do not. The light, the mood, the location; we could go on but really, all you need to know (and will see in the photos), is that everything aligned perfectly for Jake & Rachel’s […]

I (Nicole) have known Samantha since 1988. Yep – about 28 years. I’d guess I was about 8 so she was probably about 5 years old when I first befriended her older sister. It’s crazy to think that we’ve known each other that long! We’ve literally watched each other grow up. So of course when […]
