I met Lynn and Marker at their home in Uptown last month on a chilly afternoon before Christmas. Our session began with a brisk walk around the block with their sweet dog Jake! I had heard so much about this guy before meeting him, and knew how important it was that we include him in their session. We were lucky enough to capture some fun family photos outside before retreating to their warm apartment 🙂

We said goodbye to Jake and headed to my favorite place in all of Chicago, the Garfield Park Conservatory. This was Lynn and Marker’s first time there, so lucky me – I got to play tour-guide! We had fun pretending exploring the rooms and we were in a tropical rainforest… and even ran outside for some quick golden hour photos before sunset. The holiday display was a room full of vibrant Pointsettas (this was Lynn’s favorite!), and a perfect place to end our session.

Lynn and Marker have been together for a decade, and are so excited to tie the knot this year. See how they look at each other?! It was a pleasure photographing these two, and I’m already counting the days til their June wedding!
