A Downtown Evanston Engagement: Kelly + Chris

There are so many amazing spots in Chicago to take amazing pictures.  You can be surrounded by high-rises, walking in the sand along beautiful Lake Michigan, and up north in Evanston looking back at the city among the cutest homes, and huge rocks next to the lake within minutes.

Kelly and Chris were one of the many lucky people to have met on eHarmony.  As fate would have it, they started talking in December of 2012. After a month of friendly conversations, Chris asked Kelly on their first date.  They met at Yard House, and described that date as a night full of laughter, friendship and relief.  Soon after that, they became best friends and fell in love.

Recently, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Kelly and Chris’ Engagement.  I met them in Evanston, where they have the cutest home, most adorable dog, Stella, where Chris works as a firefighter, and their favorite spot along the lake.  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this winter…

Starting with one of my favorites…

Kelly and Chris are two of the sweetest people I know, and so is their love <3


This is the exact spot where Chris proposed in Evanston…

Meet Stella.

After a few pictures by the lake, we went to firehouse where Chris has been a firefighter for over 7 years…

Oh… how I just adore these…

Finally, we ended their session in a place these two have made a house a home

Their beautiful home has made me question my condo in the city;)

Stella.  You are just the sweetest!


Happy Friday, friends!  You can leave some love for my friends below…. Oh, and Happy National Smile Day! XOX
