Amanda + Tim ~ Alfred Caldwell Lily Pond & Lincoln Park Zoo ~ Chicago Engagement Photography

I’m so excited to share this super stylish and adorable engagement session with you guys! We started the session at the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pond where Tim proposed to Amanda last May, and ended the session at the south end of Lincoln Park Zoo. We lucked out with an absolutely beautiful day – as you can see!

I was already super excited to shoot Amanda and Tim’s wedding (they like good food, good beer, are holding it at the Joffrey Ballet Studio (!!!), and on my birthday (!!) – what’s there not to love?!) – but now I’m INCREDIBLY excited to shoot it after witnessing their engagement session! I had so much fun with these two! They are so laid back and sweet together… just my kind of people! 🙂

And don’t even get me started on Amanda’s dress and hat! (I. want.) I hope you enjoy this beautiful couple’s session on this wonderful Friday! 🙂


Cheers!! (At the spot where Tim proposed to Amanda exactly a year ago on the day we shot this session! Aww!)


Happy weekending everybody! 🙂
