I receive a lot of questions on how to prepare for your portrait session, what to wear, how to practice ‘posing’, etc. so I put together some info to help you get a better idea of what you’re getting yourselves into – and hopefully get you over those nerves! Bottom line, just be yourselves. This […]

How to prepare for your portrait session

To help explain how this engagement session went, let me quote Murphy at the end of the session… here’s the scene – we’re on North Ave. Beach taking the last few shots of the 2-hour session, when we see another couple taking their engagement photos nearby. I keep photographing Emily + Murphy when I hear […]

Emily + Murphy’s Chicago Engagement Session | Riverwalk and North Ave. Beach

Tayler + Luke. What can I say about them… they’re obviously gorgeous, SO much fun, and just kind people. They welcomed me into their home to photograph where they’ve been spending most of the pandemic… snuggled up on their cozy couch in their West Loop high rise condo, curled up in Tay’s favorite little reading […]

At-Home Engagement Session in the West Loop, Chicago | Taylor + Luke

Karen + Dan put their total trust in letting me choose the location for their engagement session. They didn’t want any of the typical spots around Chicago, and wanted their session to feel unique and true to them. I knew exactly where to take them, as I had been eyeing these spots for years around […]

Karen + Dan’s Logan Square Engagement Session

We were lucky enough to get this Engagement Session in right before the shelter in place started… and it was the perfect session to hop around to some fun Logan Square spots. Austin + Brett’s favorite, Hopewell Brewing, was the starting place with their pup, Kaiju, before heading to Logan Hardware for some games, and […]

Hopewell Brewing Co. and Logan Hardware Engagement Session | Austin + Brett

More than ever, these images are probably looking more and more familiar. Hanging at home on the couch, drinking your favorite cocktails, spending extra quality time with the fur babies. The shelter in place has given us all extra time with our loved ones/roommates–and I’ve seen people getting creative with ways to stay busy. Taking […]

At Home, Begyle Brewing, and Parsons Chicken Engagement Session | Donna + Ricky

During this time of social distancing and quarantine – what better time to feature Sarah + Matt – our team captured their engagement session at home relaxing and along the nearby 606 trail (something we’ll all be doing over the next few weeks!). Not only do we LOVE when couples let us capture their real […]

At Home Engagement in Bucktown | Sarah + Matt

Mal is one of the many talented folks over at Kehoe Designs – so when she reached out about her wedding, I just couldn’t wait to start snapping pics. We shot their engagement session at one of their favorites spots – Fig & Olive, and then walked around Gold Coast to the Viceroy Hotel rooftop. […]

Gold Coast Engagement Session | Fig and Olive, Viceroy Hotel with Mal + Michael

Becky + Tom are getting married in just a couple months so it was about dang time we blogged their engagement session from last year. They’re working with JTP team photographer, Nicki, and going through their photos made me SO sad I couldn’t be there myself! I can tell these two had a blast during […]

Roscoe Village Home Engagement Session | Becky + Tom (and Emmitt)

Bri + John work downtown and live in the West Loop. As I always tell my couples, let’s focus your engagement session around where you spend your daily lives! So, we spent the session downtown near the riverwalk where they walk home from work, hanging at their condo, and playing pop-a-shot at their favorite bar […]
