Modern, Romantic Home Engagement

dan-taylor-engagement-17.jpg

I'm a big believer in the power of photographs to not only serve as celebration of a time and season- but also a space! When Taylor & Dan requested that part of their engagement session take place in their gorgeous first home with their handsome boxer pup, Roscoe, my answer was YES!! These engagement photographs reflect the blend of cozy, warm atmosphere and clean, modern aesthetic that these two love to cultivate and share with their friends and family. 

Thanks to Bianca Sansosti for blessing our foxy bride with her magical makeup fairy dust. This suite of engagement photos wouldn't be complete without details from The Mrs Box (Porter) and Bellame Ribbon (Porcelain). Styling by Amelia Cole Events!

LBD + Denim Botanic Garden Engagement

When Amy, Sean and I were developing the concept for their engagement session, the word "natural" was used often. This couple has an easygoing chemistry and warmth of friendship that can only come from knowing one another well for a good deal of time. Both Amy and Sean love the outdoors, so when they chose the Chicago Botanic Garden for their late summer, early fall engagement session, I wasn't surprised.

I love the opportunity to spend time with a couple at an engagement shoot before the wedding, especially when I've not met both partners. When Amy & I first met, Sean was on the road for work and she was careful to include him in the photography decision process. I enjoyed our meeting, and everything really clicked when I met these two together. Sean makes Amy laugh in a way that shows how much history and trust they share. I couldn't be more excited for their wedding next spring!
