This very-Chicago engagement session is of Abby and Michael – one of my many couples this year that met when they were in school. We found some great, intimate spots to shoot which made for a very urban session. I just love photographing these couples – there is something about having been together for so many years that creates such a very relaxed, and intimate feeling between them. Couples that have known each other for so long tend to feel effortlessly natural at ease with one another and just have a different level of calmness and comfort between them. Abby and Michael were no exception, with such a relaxed and sweet energy between them. I had such a wonderful time shooting with them and cannot wait for their wedding this fall at a winery downstate. I think it will be so amazing, particularly with Abby’s amazing red hair against the backdrop of the fall colors. Can not wait!
