Yep. There’s snow on the ground. Again. In mid April. A few weeks ago I shared a few of my favorite Chicago engagement session locations with you guys. Given the crummy weather, I thought I’d share a few favorite indoor Chicago engagement locations for when the weather just won’t cooperate. A majority of these can also work for your wedding day, so take note! These are just a few recent favorites of mine. I’d love to hear more of your ideas, so be sure to share in the comments below.

I shared a sneak peek from the second half of Connie and Bill’s engagement session earlier this week. Now, it’s time for part one taken at Garfield Park Conservatory! Some of you may have noticed the cold and snow earlier this week (but in true Chicago fashion, it’s going to be in the 70’s tomorrow). Lucky for us, Connie and Bill planned for an indoor engagement session from the get go. It was such a relief to not worry about the weather! Garfield Park Conservatory was the perfect oasis on a wintry Chicago day…

I can hardly contain my excitement from this weekend’s engagement session, so I’m unveiling the first set of previews taken at the Art Institute of Chicago. Thank you to Connie and Bill for letting me share my happy place with you! Photographing at the Art Institute was a dream come true. And I have a feeling it won’t be my last time (crossing my fingers to finally shoot a wedding here this year or next!!). The Art Institute of Chicago has been one of my favorite places period since I was a little kid…

Now that it’s spring, it’s time to start planning those Chicago engagement photo sessions! I love planning these sessions with you guys and wanted to share a few of my favorite spots around the city with you. I hope this helps give you some ideas! If one of your favorite spots isn’t on here, leave a comment and share. I’m always looking for new and exciting locations around Chicago.

Now that 2018 is officially here, I’m getting ready for our first weddings of the year! We have 2 amazing clients this February, and are super excited to be working with Jackie and Steve at Cafe Brauer. Dreaming back to a warmer Chicago climate, I felt like it was time to share more from their engagement photos from last spring…

We weren’t exactly going for a winter look for Jes and Ben’s engagement photos, but we rolled with it anyway. In early November, an unexpected snow storm hit the Chicagoland area which added some fresh powder to this engagement session. We started their session at their West Loop home rooftop, the very place where Ben popped the question. Not bad a view! From there, we took advantage of the best of both worlds: a little bit of West Loop, a little bit nature and city skyline. Thank you both for toughing out the elements that day. With today’s single digit weather, I bet the low 20’s would feel like summertime now…

With winter on the inevitable horizon, I’m living every sunny, warm day to it’s fullest and we could not have picked a more beautiful day for Nikki and Daniel’s one year anniversary session. Jackson Park and Promontory point are big time favorite photo locations of mine, and I’m hoping to use them a bit more in 2018. The south shore of Chicago is a beauty…

What’s there to say? We found a beautiful place to get lost. And by lost, I mean we definitely got lost more than a few times en route to White Pocket, Arizona.

Not many people can say they met standing ON Wrigley Field, but that’s exactly how Angie and Alex’s story began. Alex, who works for the Cubs, met Angie at a corporate event hosted at the friendly confines and they both agree that it was love at first sight. When it came to planning their engagement session, there was only one obvious choice for the location: Wrigley Field.

I can’t get enough of these two! I had a blast working with Dominique and Alan for their engagement session. It was a beautiful summer evening spent in the west loop and downtown. We incorporated several of my favorite things: West Loop charm, a gorgeous ivy covered wall, my favorite city bridge and Jenny Yoo and Anthropologie fashions galore.

Let the adventure begin
