As the Sun Goes Down | Engagement Photography


Ciara + Mike | Patriots Park Engagement Photography

I had recently been asked if I could do a wonderful couple’s engagement photography which I have been fortunate enough to be friends with for quite some time. I of course couldn’t have been more delighted. We chose to do the session around a small lake at Patriots Park in Downers Grove, IL. The weather was perfect and as the sun was going down, it filled the park with a beautiful, warm glow. The whole time felt like just a couple of friends hanging out, laughing with the occasion snap of the camera. I couldn’t have been happier to not only be part of this momentouis time for them but more for what lies ahead for the both of them.  As they say “We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.” I hope that they return to this moment someday, and smile.

Stay Golden Chicago

Chicago Skyline Sunset

The sun sets over a sea of buildings as unique as the people that inhabit them. The Chicago skyline reflects the warm colors of the sky. For a second it seems that spring is finally here, but I know that that could change in a blink. Nevertheless, seeing Chicago from different perspectives, from different heights, behind different lenses has grew my appreciation towards this bustling city. No matter what time of day, or what type of weather, it is always in motion. Stay golden Chicago.

As the Sun Goes Down

Nature Photography Golden Prairie

The grass is always greener as the sun goes down. The warmth is beginning to fill the air and the color in the field is becoming rich again. It’s almost summer and I can definitely feel it. I can’t wait to enjoy those nice summer walks as the birds are chirping as the light summer breeze cools you off. Maybe I’ll take some pictures too.

On the Road

On the Road

This picture was taken at Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve in Illinois. Being on the road with no clear direction to go. Knowing that I have to face a fork in the road, but I stopped and choose not to acknowledge it. I wasn’t looking forward or backwards but chose to focus on where I was at at that moment.

Being on the road with no clear direction to go. Knowing that you have to face a fork in the road, but choose not to acknowledge it. Don’t look forward, and don’t look back. Live life now, live in the moment. Live On The Road
