Klarisse and Jay live overseas but are getting married in Chicago next year. They made the trek to Chicago for their engagement session and it was nice to finally meet up with them in Lincoln Park.

Below are a few of my favorite images from our first stop.

Klarisse and Jay were in high spirits throughout the shoot- they were constantly smiling and making each other laugh. The good times continued as we headed out to the city’s west side where I showed them some of my favorite photo spots.
The three of us ducked into the courtyard at Salvage One to take a quick shot with their Chicago sign before heading out to the Metra tracks near the venue.
After all that work, a round of donuts was much deserved. And Stan’s Donuts are some of the best you can have. Klarisse and Jay sat down with their treats while I grabbed a half dozen to take home (they didn’t make it through the night).
After donuts, we went to Big Star for tacos. Donuts and tacos?!?! Klarisse and Jay are my kind of couple!
It was a pleasure to meet you, Klarisse and Jay! Congratulations on your engagement!
