Stephanie and Alex will be getting married next May. The big day will be here before we know it, and we took advantage of some down time to have their engagement session.
Alex put on his bravest smile for the camera… he was a little unsure of what to do in front of the lens.
But Stephanie was there to make him feel comfortable and relax.
Soon enough, he was posing like an old pro.
And it’s difficult to not take a great picture of the beautiful Stephanie.
I can’t wait to see her bridal look. We’re going to take some amazing pictures!
Stephanie was born and raised here in Chicago, but she and Alex currently reside in San Antonio where he’s stationed in the military.
A big piece of her heart is in our city, though, and she can’t wait to travel back to celebrate the marriage.
These two were troopers when it came to venturing off the beaten path for portraits. And Alex was always ready to give his lady a hand!
Stephanie and Alex made a quick outfit change before we left to check out some of my favorite street art, which make up this next series of photos.
I think this parrot looks like one cool customer.
One last exploding fist bump…
…and we made our way over to the harbor to take in some skyline shots.
Look at those smiles! You can tell that these two truly make each other happy.
As the sun set, we made our way into the loop.
And our last shot was in front of the Chicago theater, just as the marquee lights turned on for the evening.
It was great getting to know you better, Stephanie and Alex! I can’t wait to see you again at your wedding next May!
