Adler Planetarium Engagement | Chicago


Hello friends!  I am so excited to share with you Michelle and Gilbert’s Adler Planetarium engagement session!  I met Michelle and Gilbert this past fall and knew right away that they would be so much fun to work with!  As a former kick boxer myself, I love that Michelle and Gilbert met originally in boxing class! Can I get a 1-2-2-1-2, anyone?  Gilbert strategically partnered with Michelle’s mom in class so that he could ultimately meet Michelle!  The rest is history!

Our evening started out on the steps of Chicago’s Field Museum.  Even though the calendar said March, the cold and wind felt like a day in January. Michelle and Gilbert embraced the cold weather and snuggled close to get some really amazing photos.  I loved capturing the two of them laughing together about their own little inside jokes.  In between photos, we’d warm up in the lobby of the museum and chat.  It was great learning more about the two of them and their relationship!

Their smiles, love and laughter are contagious!

After exploring the area around the Field Mueseum, we ended the night taking photos with Gilbert’s car near the Adler Planetarium.  Gilbert is a car lover and wanted a great photo of the two of them, his car and the city in the background! The sunset that night created such a pretty glow on the couple and the city looked so dreamy behind them.  Mission accomplished!

Michelle & Gilbert, I am so excited about your wedding day in May!  Thank you for being a joy to be around and for having a blast during your engagement session!  I had so much fun spending the evening with you both during your Adler Planetarium engagement session!  I have so many favorite photos from your engagement session!!!  It was so hard for me to pick just a handful!  Your wedding will be here before you know it!  I can’t wait to do this all over again with you both on your wedding day!
