Doug and Mari — They lit up my day as soon as we began their engagement session. They hopped out of their  cab, big smiles, ready to step in front of my camera and connect.

These two first met when working at the same job. After several years together, they are tying the knot this May! Mari has a contagious laugh, and Doug smiles at her adoringly. I never grow tired of the nervous giggles throughout engagement sessions and the ability to capture those raw moments. I loved hearing about how they spend their time together, and there is no doubt that we have a common interest in good food 🙂

It was a pleasure exploring Lincoln Park and living in the moment with these two!

I loveeeee when I have the opportunity to take unique portraits and focus my attention on one individual! Dana, a talented photographer herself, could not have been a better model for this creative portrait session. She has the most easy going personality, and uhmmm … she’s stunning! So happy with the images that were created during this short time and getting to know this girl more! Enjoy some favorites!
