Engagement Shoot


We picked Lincoln Park in Chicago to shoot our engagement pictures. Nick and I both loved the versatility of the location, as we were hoping to take shots with a backdrop of nature and greenery as well as the beautiful city skyline. We also headed to the Wrigley Building downtown to snap a few city shots amongst the gorgeous architecture. We found it a perfect compromise for the country boy and the city girl.
Stemming from my love for fashion, picking our outfits for our engagement shoot was something that I had looked forward to for weeks. Initially, I had envisioned buying new outfits and accessories for the occasion but soon realized that sticking to our wedding budget seemed to be the smarter decision. We instead decided to take a trip to the local thrift store to find Nick’s jacket and bowtie. I also took a ‘shopping trip’ into my own closet and, with the help of Pinterest, I was able to create fun outfits out of pieces I already owned. Nick was happy that he was able to wear his ‘Chuck’s’ as was I to be wearing polka dots and cheetah print. We felt it was a true reflection of our own personalities and styles.
Nick and I both had a blast working with Jake from Two Birds Photography during our engagement session!  Jake was amazing to work with, as his visions are beyond what we could have imagined. As the true artist he is, Jake used the scenery as his canvas, truly capturing the story of us within his photographs. He also made it so easy for us to be ourselves in front of the camera.
