Sarah + Dara | Lincolnshire Engagement

Filed under: Chicago — Maricel @ 9:41 pm

Sarah & Darah were referred to me by my clients Chris & Tom. I was very excited to book with them and looking forward to shooting their wedding in Wilder Park this coming October.

With the weather being so hot lately, we had a really tough time getting our schedules together. Who wants to take engagement photos in 90 degree humid weather? We were able to finally get together for a session in Lincolnshire. Even though the mosquitos were attacking us, we got some shots before the sun left us. I love how comfortable these two were in front of a camera! What a cute couple!

Here are just a few images from their engagement session that day. Looking forward to seeing you guys, one more month!

Jane & Sean Engagement | Navy Pier & Cantigny

Filed under: Engagements — Maricel @ 11:22 am

Last year my very dear friend Jane sent me a text “He went to Jared’s!” where I immediately screamed in excitement! I can’t begin to express how happy I am for Jane & Sean! I remember the day she first introduced us to Sean, he definitely passed the “friend” test and we knew he would be sticking around for a while.

I was given a couple of choices from Jane, I could either be the photographer or a bridesmaid. Well, that was really a very easy choice for me! I accepted the offer to be the photographer and couldn’t wait to photograph their engagement session. We decided to start off somewhere downtown, but it was raining and very cold so we decided to head over to Navy Pier. On a nicer, much hotter day, we went to one of my favorite parks, Cantingy in Winfield. We had a ton of fun!

Congratulations Jane & Sean, I cannot wait to photograph your wedding in October!
