Colin + Liz ~ Downtown Chicago Engagement Photography

I love love love it when awesome couples like Colin and Liz come into my life!! These two are the perfect mixture of crazy-in-love, total goofballs, super stylish, and ridiculously adorable together…. and I feel SO lucky that James and I get to hang out with them on their wedding day this fall!!

For their engagement session they wanted to hit up the area around the Newberry Library and the Chicago brown line train. And somehow we just happened to get super lucky and had one of the most beautiful spring days in the city so far for the shoot… It was nearly 80 degrees and perfectly sunny! Amazing!

These two were especially awesome and let me drag them ALL OVER the neighborhood for this shoot – including random alleyways, under the train tracks, on private front stoops, and everywhere in between. I think these photos capture their relationship so well, and hope they love them just as much as I do!

(*Side note – I’m obsessed with Liz’s stunning green eyes!! Actually, I’m a little jealous of them if I’m being honest… ;))


I love this series because neither of them knew the other was up to anything until I told them! haha!

Oh my goodness – these two… gorgeous!


Gotta love downtown Chicago and all its wonderful fill light bouncing off buildings!

Love her emerald ring!


Eeeeeeee!!! I was already excited for their wedding… but now I’m WAY EXCITED. Love them! xoxo!
