Engagement session

The engagement session is one of my favorite parts of our time together because it gives you both a chance to be in front of my camera before you get married, which is going to make your wedding day experience feel so smooth, seamless and comfortable.

Not only that, but we get to create something so special together. You’re going to be married for over fifty years, but you only get to be engaged for this short period of time. I'm so excited to capture the only time in your life when you get to be each other’s fiances. 

those are my favorite

Engagement sessions

Engagement sessions are available for location shoots at the location of your choice within an hour drive from Buffalo Grove IL. Sessions are typically scheduled about 2 hours before sunset. Spring and fall are most popular times of the year to schedule these, so booking in advance is important. I encourage location selections which is special or sentimental to you in some way. If you can't think of anywhere specific, I can help you decide on location! My style is mixture of candid and posed.

Shooting engagement session in Chicago gives me great opportunity to get to know my clients before the wedding day and to build awesome relationships with my couples. I really like to shoot the all over Chicago and suburbs. And it's even more fun if it's location I've never shoot before. I love to explore new places with my brides and grooms. We very often end up somewhere in their favorite Chicago neighborhood or in an alley or a super cute local coffee shop. Sometimes its their first date location or first kiss or place where they have met for the first time. It's always so much fun!
We can do engagement session in few different settings. It might be done on location in downtown Chicago, somewhere in the suburbs, in my studio, or at your home. My photography style is moment driven and captures who you are but meanwhile I'm making sure you look your best on the pictures. We start our Chicago engagement sessions at least an two hours before the sunset, so we can maximize our outdoor time together with beautiful dreamy golden hour light and color. Your engagement photos should be unique and special to you. Very often my couples have their favorite spot in the city or suburbs. It's great if we can incorporate it in your engagement session pictures. Than on your wedding day you will have beautiful engagement pictures of you and your fiancé to display. So browse through our favorite locations for Chicago engagement photography. Choose what speaks to you! Those galleries are filled with amazing photos and ideas of poses you might like to recreate. Also I included a few facts about each of the locations to help you narrow down your selections.
