A Chicago Beach Engagement Session with Meghan and Ben

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Chicago Beach Engagement Session

Meghan and Ben were able to look so graceful on this blustery Chicago day. Seriously, the winds just wouldn’t let up- it was nuts.  But! Thanks to Meghan’s graceful step and vibrant maxi dress, the bustery day managed to look like it was all meant to be for their Chicago beach engagement session. Not to mention, the waves on the lake were huge!
We started off at a park in southern Chicago, and slowly worked our way over to the windy beach.  Naturally the beach was a great choice as Meghan and Ben are getting married in Cancun this fall.  With a plane full of guests headed down to Cancun for the Thanksgiving holiday.  We are so excited! Festivities on day 1 and portraits on day 2. Meghan and Ben have done a bit of traveling together, from the Caribbean to Italy and lovely places in between. Low key, breezy and fun, which is exactly what Meghan and Ben’s day will be.Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0002 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0003 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0004 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0005 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0006 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0007 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0008 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0009 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0010 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0011 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0012 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0013 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0014 Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0015

Ahh, Cantigny Park- you’re so picturesque I want to paint you! (Or at least have a gazillion more engagement sessions here)
Angela and Eric are getting married tomorrow! So naturally, I have to show these two lovelies off for their Cantigny Park engagement photography session. I am so excited that Angela chose Cantigny Park for the first half of her engagement session.  It’s located in Wheaton, IL which is close to both of their respective hometowns in the Chicago Suburbs. And the pops of florals along with Angela’s dresses are perfect. Angela wanted to have a taste of home along with a nod to Chicago itself for added variety and awesomeness.

Angela and Eric are getting married tomorrow at The Royal Melborne Country Club in Long Grove. Ahh Mature luscious trees are the best! Now, onto their Cantigny Park Engagement session. Can’t wait for tomorrow!

A Chicago Engagement Session with John and Jane

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Jane and John had their Chicago engagement session with us shortly after arriving in town from Australia, where they live. It was an around the world affair for them as John is originally from Ireland and Jane from Chicago.  They met while both working abroad in Australia and never looked back.
They held their festivities at the Rookery later that week, as well as  in Ireland later- finishing off their around the world tickets to Japan before heading home to the amazing down under in Australia.
And the details! THE CAKE!!!!! Holy tomatoes, I can’t wait to show you all of the crazy epic details (balloons! Giant confetti balloons!) from their wedding day.

It was awesome having a chance to step outside of the world of Skype and meet John in person for the first time at this engagement session.

A Chicago Engagement Photography Session with Tracey and Chris

Tracey and Chris are awesome.  We got to essentially just roam around Pilsen with them for the Chicago engagement photography session, joking about cheese and other bits of silly-ness for the first half of their session.
I can’t wait for their wedding! Their city affair is going to be held at the beautifully historic Hard Rock Hotel in downtown Chicago later this fall. Fitting? Yes. Tracey and Chris got engaged in Las Vegas as he swept her off of her feet and they stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas.
Now, on to the engagement session. Might I add- Tracey, your hair is AMAZING. That is all. <3
