Hello, friends and readers! How is everyone?? I’ve been busy lately – wedding season is off to a fantastic start and summer has officially begun. Looking forward to catching up on some posts!

Last month I got to hang out with Betty and Nick while she was in town from New York for their engagement session. These two were so much fun to photograph! We met at the Chicago Theatre and made our way down to the Riverwalk for a stroll (not short of some great accidental photobombers… see below!). I learned that Nick popped the question on a recent trip to Paris – on top of the Eiffel Tower!! Apparently he asked her immediately once they reached the top, just in case someone else had the same idea. Somehow I end up meeting couples with the most romantic proposal stories 🙂

Though they plan to reside together in New York prior to their 2018 nuptials, Nick expressed how much he has loved living in Chicago. Because Betty travels to our city frequently for work (and for Nick), they decided it would be a perfect place for Engagement photos! I couldn’t have agreed more. The weather gods dealt us choice summer temperatures, and we made it to Olive Park just in time for skyline photos before they closed for the evening.

Nick and Betty: Thanks again for having me document this time for you! I had a lot of fun getting to know you both and creating these images together. I know your future will be full of laughs and love!
