This engagement session is simply one in a million. The art that was made is truly inspiring. Amber and David grew up next door to one another. As they came to be adults, they both found work in artistic fields (Amber, an art teacher, David, a tattoo artist). They spent their dating relationship riding bikes, so naturally, they included their modes of transportation in their session. Their story is captivating, and their love is tangible. It was incredible to see the images I could create with these two as my subjects in a diverse Chicago harbor terrain that evolved at every turn. One photo that stands out is the last image, where they stand atop a hill, together, as the cotton candy clouds float over a fire-lit sky, and they stare into a future that has endless creative potential.
We’ll be filming their wedding in January and can’t wait to continue telling their story!
Session location: Montrose Harbor // Chicago, IL
