Chicago Engagement Session with Lily and John

Written by , Posted in Engagement

John and Lily had their Chicago engagement session with us the week of their wedding as they live in Sunny and Tropical Hawaii. They wanted to have their wedding in fabulous Chicago since family is based all over the US and Canada, and Chicago makes for a great meeting point (thank you O’hare airport, we couldn’t do it without you) ūüôā

I always find it wonderful when families travel for important life events, the closeness and emotion is lovely.
John and Lily met through John’s sister, with whom Lily was fast friends with back in San Diego- and the love blossomed from there. In the midst of planning their own ‘destination’ wedding of sorts from Hawaii, John was also serving our country overseas. Our favorite question for them was when we asked if/where they plan on going on their honeymoon, they simply answered ‘No, we live in Hawaii.’ So true, so true.

By the way, John has quite an excellent fashion sense, between Lily’s wedding shoe hunt for the perfect color and John’s multi-print pocket square, I cannot wait for you to see their wedding. In the meantime, here is their Chicago Engagement Session.

A Chicago Beach Engagement Session with Meghan and Ben

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Chicago Beach Engagement Session

Studio Finch Chicago Cancun Destination Engagement Wedding Photography_0001
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

Long Beach Wedding Photography: Museum of Latin American Art (MoLAA) with Mari & Ryan

Written by , Posted in California, Travel, Wedding

Ryan and Mari’s¬†Long Beach wedding photography day is seriously one of my favorites this year. ¬†The colors, the people, the location, and not to mention- the fantastic branding: Gingerbean, which is a delightful combo of their nicknames to each other. And? The logo they made? even more excellent! Given, I expect none the less since Ryan and Mari and a couple of designer/art director Gurus extraordinaire for Speedo and Oakley alike. You’ll see a down into the post the logo and sunny shades, given- I can’t vouch that there were any Speedos there that day.

Molaa‘s venue had some amazing art pieces and colors to shoot with from the forks to the various saturated stucco walls and sculptures through out. Excellent Long Beach venue indeed.

Shades?  Provided a perfect accessory when shooting in the sun with the bridesmaids.

Mari’s mom- you were glowing that day!

 

Gingerbean logo- boom.

Congrats again you two! ¬†Coffee next time we’re in LA?

A Brooklyn Engagement Photography- Pooja and Ben

Written by , Posted in Engagement

We met Pooja and Ben in person for the first time near Brooklyn Bridge Park for their Brooklyn engagement photography session and spent most of the afternoon exploring the crevasses and streets of the neighborhood- from the delicious Faramacie ice cream shop to the Brooklyn Pub. Pooja looked absolutely amazing in her vivid blue dress. Many many more shots to come of these two in July, once their Chicago Navy Pier Wedding approaches.
