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!
