This day started out with so much sunlight and two VERY happy people! I met Emy through one of my past brides and getting to meet her and Derek together was such a joy. They really brought out the best in one another and so many smiles!
We started the afternoon in the gorgeous Lurie Garden in Millinnium Park. It’s such a quiet space in the middle of one of the busiest parks. It’s perfect for pictures, especially if you are nervous in front of others. The fall plant life was GORGEOUS and you can’t beat that city skyline view!These two were so easy to photograph! With a little bit of direction, they took it upon themselves to do their own thing and it worked out so well.LOVE this shot! (And find it really funny that I’m literally lying in the bushes to get it. HA!)I mean, you could you two BE any cuter?!?!<3 <3 <3How gorgeous is this Fall Chicago day?!They just happened to match the fall trees perfectly.
It’s like you two are picture frame models or something! 😉JUST STUNNING!!!A quick outfit change and walk across Michigan Ave, and we made our way over to the popular Adler Planetarium for more city skyline views.PERFECT DAY OUT!Not many people know it, but on the other side of the planetarium, there is a small beach and quiet walkway along the water.
It’s a perfect spot to look out and have some alone time.Love whey my couples get goofy! It makes the pictures so much more fun!The way Derek is looking at you here Emy! SO SWEET! And LOVED that the sun came out even more!When I get an idea in my head and it WORKS!
Love experimenting with windows & reflections!You two nail this lift shot EVERY time!And that’s it! You are done with your engagement pictures! HA!
Thank you two for such a beautiful afternoon! I had a blast running around the city and so happy you got such a pretty sunny day!
I cannot wait for your wedding next year!HUGS!
