Cantigny Park Engagement Session



Cantigny Park Engagement Session

Hey Friends,

I am SO thrilled to share my very first SUMMER engagement session in 2020! Meet Danielle and Conor, one of my sweet 2021 couples. Right away, Danielle knew that she wanted a nature inspired engagement session and not long after thinking, she choose one of my favorite spots – Cantigny Park!  This spot never disappoints with its beautiful lush gardens and that glowy sunset light. I literally am still obsessed with this Cantigny Park Engagement Session (and Danielle’s pink maxi dress from Lulu’s)!

Danielle and Conor

Danielle and Conor’s story started when they met at a college bar at Illinois State University.  Five years later, Conor planned a surprise proposal – the kind where everyone else knew about it but Danielle – up in Door County.  He got down on one knee and with a beautiful rose gold diamond ring he proposed and she said yes.

I know I always say this but I really am so lucky to work with such kind and graceful clients!  Danielle and Conor are no exception and the love they share together is so beautiful.  They both have big hearts and professionally work in fields helping people. Some of my favorite photos are them sharing a laugh together and smiling over at one another.

Danielle and Conor, I had the BEST time capturing your engagement photos! Thank you for making my job so easy and for being so fun and friendly to hang out with!  Danielle – I LOVE that we planned this session on your birthday!  I hope that it made it all the more special!  It is such an honor to be able to capture this joyful time in your life.  I am already counting down the days until next summer for your wedding day!
