engagement photography chicago riverwalk

I had so much fun with Maryam and Behrad for their engagement session in downtown Chicago that it seriously felt like kicking back with old friends. He’s outwardly witty and she’s a shy Persian beauty. They met in college, hold a long-distance relationship currently, and cannot wait to make a home together in sunny Cali after they wed. And as ridiculously good looking as these two are on the outside, let me just say that they have the hearts to match – Maryam and Behrad are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and are just as sweet as these engagement photos suggest. (In fact, I’m cutting my vacay here in Maui a little short JUST to return to Chicago next week to shoot their wedding!)

We started off at the Chicago River and finished up at North Avenue Beach. Both locations offered spectacular views of a city skyline and an urban backdrop – and also, because this is the big city, a random guy in the street insisting to polish Behrad’s shoes. And Behrad, being kind Behrad, couldn’t say no.

Looking forward to shooting their wedding!

romantic fun indian engagement pictures at chicago botanic garden

Not your typical garden party variety. Whimsical and romantic, that’s how Asha and Cherian described their vision for an engagement session, and of course, I was so on board! You really can’t go wrong with any of these picture-perfect details – the serene, lush background of the Chicago Botanic Garden, a lovely lace dress, and a couple as adorable as Asha and Cherian. They both have a delightful sense of humor – Cherian fake proposed to Asha about five times to mess with her before popping the surprise question for real.

The pair displays such a sweet effortlessness in their interactions with one another, and as a Chicago engagement photographer, it was so fun following them around this city location as they twirled around or canoodled! And when they changed into their colorful second outfits, I love how we were able to capture those pops of colors against the whimsy of the botanic garden. This Chicago engagement session was the perfect balance of playfulness and romance, and I’m so excited to share it with you!

gender announcement pregnancy photographer in chicago

It’s a boy!

These beautiful first time parents-to-be, Samah and Mohammed, dropped a big one (or four) on friends and family, revealing in a blaze of blue smoke that they will welcome a baby boy in the winter. We shot their gender reveal and maternity session in downtown Chicago on a gloriously dapple-lit street. Confession: this wasn’t the first time I met Samah and Mohammed. After having driven over two hours into the city for our session, I discovered, upon arrival, that I had forgotten my camera. I’ll be the first to admit when I make a mistake, and fortunately for me, these two kind souls were so understanding that these things unfortunately happen and we rescheduled – a sure sign that they will be natural parents and can roll with the punches when even the best-laid plans go awry.

Congrats on your little bun in the oven!
