Sunset Sessions

I really like shooting engagement sessions in Chicago - it gives me a great opportunity to get to know my clients and build awesome relationships. My instinct is to always explore new places with my couples. Perhaps their favorite neighborhood in Chicago, or a great coffee spot with an alley way detour. These are just some of the engagement sessions I've shot and if you click each photo, you'll be able to see each couple's unique Chicago engagement story and photos.
