Chicago Engagement Photography | Kasey + Ernie

November 05, 2013  •  5 Comments

Kasey mentioned to me before the start of her and Ernie's shoot that both she and her fiance were a little nervous. Truth be told, I was a little nervous too. This session was the first time I photographed an engaged couple. They trusted me based on my photos of families and babies to capture their love with my camera. That right there is faith, so I put so much thought into this shoot before we met. I told Kasey not to worry. I would make this whole session relaxed and fun, and the best thing she and Ernie could do was be themselves and try to forget that there was this crazy lady with a camera following them.

I love this session so much, and it's not because I think I created magic with my camera. It's because these two, whom have known each other since high school, did exactly what I asked them to, and for the most part forgot that I was there. I watched them be silly and nervous and loving toward one another. I was in awe of how at ease they made one another. As a result, Kasey and Ernie, despite what they might tell you, are naturals in front of a camera.

You know I love photographing dogs and the people who love them.

I have already told Kasey she needs a huge print of the photo below somewhere in her house. This is easily one of my top 10 favorite images I have created this year.

I had so much fun getting to know the both of you and your sweet pup. And I am so jealous of your wedding photographer because capturing the love between you two is a blast. Thank you again so much for reaching out and asking me to take your engagement photos. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

As Ernie's mom I could say that I expected the photos to be cute, just like the two kids. But they do look like a loving mature couple, which they are. The photos are really very good. Nice work all!
