When you find clients who are willing to get up early for a sunrise engagement session, you work the hell out of it! Vicki+Andy were great sports about an early morning shoot at North Ave Beach and Millennium Park, and as a reward we had the city to ourselves! These two are getting married next summer, but that doesn't make us any less excited for them! Congrats guys!

Family is a big deal for this couple. After being introduced in college by Lucy's sister, Lucy+Tim found their perfect match! Fast forward to a very special walk with their dog on the Chicago Riverwalk, when Tim proposed -- but that was only the first part of the surprise. He had also arranged for three of her four sisters to be in town to help them celebrate their engagement! These two are getting married next February, and we couldn't be more excited! Congrats, Lucy+Tim!
You may remember some of our previous style shoots with Debi Lilly, like this festive affair, or this springtime celebration... Well, we were really excited to join Debi at her new party space, DL Studio! As usual, the design and carefully curated decor were incredible. We had a fantastic time collaborating with her to commemorate her new venture! Congrats, Debi!
Thanks to Toni Patisserie for the desserts, and to our fabulous model, Willow Star!
