With its charming architecture, light-filled atrium and winding staircases, The Rookery Building is an iconic Chicago location! For chilly days such as this February afternoon, you can’t find a more perfect spot for a romantic engagement session. Right outside its doors is the Chicago Board of Trade – another popular location for city views!

Ashley + Danny’s Engagement Session at Rookery Chicago

It was such fun capturing Kelsey + TJ at one of their favorite spots, Disney’s Yacht + Beach Club. The New England style resort is a photographer’s dream. Sandy lakeside beaches, French doors, beautiful courtyards and a charming lighthouse all add to the casually elegant atmosphere. And the best part about this location?? You’re a quick walk away from restaurants along the Boardwalk for a tasty bite post photo session!

Disney World Engagement Session

Lauren and Bill’s relationship started like so many do… they met through mutual friends. When they both found themselves single, Bill became persistent on asking Lauren out. She was hesitant at first, but ultimately gave him a chance (with her mom’s advice!!) Just like any fairytale story you’d see in the movies, the rest was history. Lauren says that Bill stole her heart before she even had a chance to realize she was falling in love. Swoon!

When it came to planning their couples’ session, they knew the perfect setting was Bill’s family’s yacht. Lauren and Bill spend their summers making memories on Lake Michigan, so it was only fitting! The evening started out laidback and romantic… we popped champagne, listened to music, and cruised serenely down the lake. Mother Nature had other plans for us though! As an unexpected storm rolled in, Bill had to captain us through crazy high winds!

Warm temps, gentle breeze, glowy light. Chicago was in rare form this October evening. Showing off, really!! I’ve lived here for going on eight years now, and still ooh and ahh at the beauty of this city. Lindsay and Bobby are Chicago residents moving to Nashville and before they embarked on a new journey, they wanted some sweet photos in the city where they fell in love.

Lindsay and Bobby’s Chicago Engagement Session

Look up ‘bubbly’ in the dictionary and you’ll likely find a picture of Alex + Elijah. These two are so smiley, giggly and JOY-FILLED… photographing them left my cheeks sore from laughing so much! Combine their energy with glowy Northern California light, and you get magic.

Baker Beach Engagement Session

Let me to tell you about Ariele + Jack!! These two are a Tinder success story. After matching and chatting online for weeks, they finally agreed to meet up when Ariele got home from her vacation in the UK. The first time they met, Jack picked Ariele up from the airport. Turns out her courage to get into a stranger’s car paid off, because these two are a perfect match!

Ariele + Jack’s Newport Beach Session

Anyone who’s visited Charleston, or seen photos of the city, knows that it’s full of charm. There are endless gorgeous photo spots, making it one of my all-time favorite places to work!! From the dreamy Spanish Moss to the pastel colored buildings and lush blooms, it’s the most perfect combination. Pair that with a sweet couple like Haley Jane + Stephen, and you get pure magic!!

Downtown Charleston Couples’ Session

I LOVE this time of year. Late August comes with less humidity, cooler temps, + the return of the Starbucks fall menu. But most of all, I love this time of year because it’s SUNFLOWER SEASON!!! Christina + Jack had a blast frolicking through the sunflower fields at their engagement session, sharing lots of smiles […]

One of the things I love about photography is that no two shoots are ever the same. Even here in Chicago, where I work most often, my couples are always bringing me to new and fun places. Amber + Ryan’s engagement session was no exception!

Amber and Ryan’s North Ave Beach Engagement Session

Allow me to introduce one of the kindest + most fun-loving couples I’ve met… Lily and Cody!! These two met at a party in college while both attending Purdue University, and were inseparable ever since. Even through long distance when Lily moved to Austin, they always found ways to balance work, responsibilities, and most importantly – time together.
