My oh my oh my, you are in for a treat with these! You see, Molly is my adorable cousin who lives in Chicago and got engaged to the equally adorable Joe last June. Since I have been shooting weddings every single weekend of September in Chicago I knew that I needed to capture some engagement shots of the two of them while I was in town, and since Molly and Joe live literally across Lincoln Park from each other, we knew that we needed to include their adorable neighborhood and the park in their session!
I am in LOVE with all of these, I just can't even tell you how much I loved watching my little cousin sharing so much love and joy with her man...but I'll shut up now so that you can see them! We started in the cutest courtyard entrance to an apartment building EVER!
Then we headed over to Lincoln Park and I found the low sunlight peaking through buildings and trees OH WOW OH WOW it was beautiful!!
I love me a Classic, Beautiful smiling engagement shot. Mom and Dad want to frame it (You're welcome Aunt Karon and Uncle Clem) and you will treasure it now and thirty years from now! Always an important piece of my engagement sessions, and this is one of my favorites EVER!!
I think you can see love come alive when you watch two people who are in love laugh together... and Molly and Joe have it in spades!! I can't even tell you how happy it makes me to see them so happy in this next photo!
Chicago... Chicago... Oh how I love you!!
And to end the night, a quick dance under the pavilion!
Thanks for spending a fun evening with me, guys! And for the Chicago cousin dinner that you set up afterward! It was great to see everyone, and great to finally meet you, Joe! I CAN'T wait for the wedding next year!!
