I am so happy that Claire & Scotty found me through a previous bride of mine! They are just so genuinely themselves, nice and easy going. I remember feeling so grateful that they shared their authentic selves with me during the session. Trust is a big part of what I do if you think about it. I need my couples to feel comfortable enough to be themselves in front of my camera. It’s always heartwarming and exciting when people trust me with the task of documenting a special time in their lives. That feeling never goes away, no matter how many celebrations, engagements, or weddings I shoot. For Claire & Scotty’s engagement session we chose a beautiful park along the Fox River. They love to be outdoors and make use of their canoe – which of course they brought to the session! I always tell my couples “I want these photos to feel true to you” – so I love when we can incorporate activities that they love to do together in their every day life. I had such a nice time in the woods making these photographs of Claire & Scotty. We even got lucky with a gorgeous blanket of fresh snow. I’m looking forward to their wedding in May!
