Shelly and DJ are two of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet… they’re very much in love and incredibly excited for their wedding this September.
And I’ll be with them on that day, serving as their photographer.
The three of us met up not long ago for their engagement session. The weather was beautiful and so was Shelly- her beaming smile was present throughout the shoot!
Life IS Good for Shelly and DJ!
The happy couple will be holding their wedding at the Crystal Garden at Navy Pier.
I’ve never shot a wedding there before, and I’m looking forward to exploring new territory.
Not the baby!!! I’m so fortunate that so many of my couples want to showcase their sense of humor in their pictures… Shelly and DJ are no exception!
Shelly sure is excited in this picture… she’s definitely got a love of pandas.
It was a lot of fun watching Shelly and DJ interact. These two are head over heels for each other!
Greetings from the Windy City!
We swung by one of DJ’s favorite stores, Rotofugi. Own your love for toys, DJ!
I might qualify as a nerd for toys, too, after a few minutes in this shop. There were so many cool and unique items.
DJ and Shelly couldn’t resist taking home some treasures!
Once the adrenaline from new toy acquisition wore off, they switched outfits and I posed them in front of a favorite mural of mine.
The day was gorgeous, so we headed over to Montrose Harbor to run around for awhile.
Our tummies were rumbling as we took this skyline shot…
…so we swung by Potbelly- one of Shelly’s favorite restaurants- to grab a sandwich.
Dinner and a show… what a perfect way to end a session!
I’m terribly excited for your wedding day, Shelly and DJ. Enjoy the rest of your summer, and I’ll see you in September!
