Mara + Chris ~ Lurie Garden and Chicago Museum Campus Engagement

I’ve been so looking forward to meeting these two since Mara first emailed me!! I was so glad we were able to find a date that worked when they were back in town visiting and it just happened to be a relatively warm day (for this time of year…. well, at least compared to what we’ve been dealing with weather-wise lately)!!! These two are so great together and I loved capturing them as they are – happy, laughing, and just enjoying time together!!

We started by wandering around Lurie Garden and then wrapped the session at the Field Museum and the skyline view by the Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium! It was a beautiful night with the perfect sunset glow and here are some of my favorite captures with these two love birds!!!
