Ashley + Eder : Sunset Engagement at Cantigny Park

As soon as these two walked up, I could see how excited they were. 🙂

As park visitors from the day were heading home, we were heading in to the gorgeous grounds at Cantigny in Wheaton.

Filled with the best best sunset glow (what I call photographer heaven!), I could not be more in love with these photos.

Ashley & Eder are complete naturals and I challenge you NOT to smile while you look through their beautiful and perfect evening.

Here is Ashley & Eder

I mean, COME ON with this light!!! <3 <3 <3Your smiles are infectious.  These first few pictures happened within the first 10 minutes of their session.

I told them we could be done already if we had to be.  They are such an adorable duo!Eder was so good at making Ashley laugh.  They just ‘mesh’ well together.

(Thanks Clueless.)

😉This ‘Golden Hour’ of light was so fun for me to photograph in.

It makes it even more fun when the couple is THIS CUTE!There are so many different areas around Cantigny.  When you go walking, there’s always something new and unique to look at.

Or in my case, photograph through.PERFECTION with a sunburst!🙂 🙂 🙂Ashley looked over at me without any direction on my part and my reaction caused…🙂 🙂 🙂

LOVE catching genuine laughter!I cannot get enough of this amazing sunlight! It was seriously such a beautiful night!

(Bet you can’t guess they are standing on the tiniest rock ever!)

#TheThingsYourPhotographerMakesYouDo HA!The more we walked, the more I kept yelling, Ok, stop here!  I would see the sun on them and just HAVE to stop!Seriously, you two make my job easy and fun! <3One of my favorite areas at Cantigny.Just a stroll at sunset with your fiance. <3

Ashley, you are gorgeous!

(p.s. Eder would look at her like this the ENTIRE time.  Truly in love and it was so cool to see.)After a few tries…


So pretty!!!Did I mention these two didn’t need much direction?  They just did, well, them!

🙂<3 <3 <3LOVE this reflection pond area!Again, #TheThingsYourPhotographerMakesYouDo

😉But for an awesome picture, it’s always worth it in the end!On our walk, I caught the final descent of the sun between some trees and BOOM, our new spot!


I loved how it made everything look like Fall. <3Right as we were about to move on, Ashley and I look over and see Eder like this.

Sometimes, you need to have a moment with a tree.

😉I promise it’s Summer, not Fall.  The sunlight was just amazing on all of the trees!

<3 <3 <3Always making each other laugh and smile.  That should be a marriage motto I think. 😉

A few more pictures on the other side of the park before a fun outfit change…

Into Blackhawks Jerseys and on to tanks!

Where’s there’s a tank, there’s a must have picture.

It’s common sense.

😉I noticed later while editing,  Eder was holding on to Ashley to make sure she didn’t fall. So sweet!Taking in the last bit of light at dusk with a stroll in matching jerseys…The obligatory jumping picture…take 3 or 4??? HA! 😉What’s a Blackhawks jersey without some ring bling?Thank you two for one amazingly beautiful and fun engagement session!  I don’t think I stopped smiling the entire time. 🙂

You two are beyond sweet and this makes me even more excited for your wedding NEXT MONTH!!!

Cannot wait to share another special day with you both.

See you soon!
