Chicago Cubs Engagement photos | Wrigley Field engagement session | Chicago photographer | Stan & Jess

To say that Stan and Jess are huge Cub fans, would be an understatement. They live in Atlanta, and they flew in just for the session. Oh Yeah, Stan proposed at Wrigley Field….inside the stadium….on the field, yeah, it’s OK to be jealous. We met up at Murphy’s Bleachers, where I was also  introduced to Jess’ custom sparkly Cubs heels! OMG!!! They are insane!!! Thank you Stan and Jess for braving the cold and allowing me to photograph your very fun engagement session!!!

Save-the-date Chicago engagement photos | Evanston photography | Nicole & Christopher

Warning lots of cuteness coming your way. Furry children are always welcome at engagement sessions, just be sure to let me know ahead of time so we can have a doggie sitter/helper. Lucy was the perfect model of course 😉

Surprise engagement proposal at the Chicago Botanic Garden (photographer for proposals)

I’m so happy to share with the world this gorgeous couple. The handsome groom-to-be hired me to photograph the proposal, and please excuse the pun, but it really was picture perfect. Thank you to the forever picturesque Botanic Gardens (specifically Connie Bolle) for the referral.
