Jose Villa’s workshop team created magic in Mexico! I had the opportunity to capture this inspirational engagement as a part of the workshop. The idyllic location, along with the romance of a colonial era hacienda created a picture perfect backdrop for a photo shoot. Who wouldn’t want to get engaged here?

Thank you Belle Lumiere for sharing Jessica and Noam’s engagement session on their blog today! You can see it all here!

The clouds were rolling in. The fall was giving way to winter. But, the air was still romantic. To add more warmth to the evening our couple, Jessica and Noam, decided to ride their bicycle to a quiet park to celebrate their engagement. They brought with them a picnic basket and a warm blanket. With cheese, bread, grapes, and wine all they didn’t need anything more!

Dressed casually, yet elegantly, they strolled down the park , exchanged some words by the bicycle, and, snuggled by a tree to enjoy a toast.

We were lucky to capture these moments and we wish them many more romantic evenings together!

Here comes one of our favorite couples this year – Liz and Cam. They had a classic Chicago wedding at the beautiful Union League Club. The rain and the cold didn’t hold back our couple to go to the wonderful Art Institute Gardens to have their portrait images taken there. We absolutely LOVED every bit of this gorgeous wedding. Congrats to our sweet lovebirds!
