amanda and ritch...... chicago engagement session

last week i traveled down to chicago to photograph amanda and ritch's engagement pictures. it was a FABULOUS trip. I ADORE chicago (ahem, if you are getting married down there....or even want a session in that area. contact me. STAT.)  and even more? I adore fun couples who "get" me and are totally willing to do whatever I ask in the name of fun pictures. amanda and ritch were totally one of those couples. I had an amazing time with them. And if I adore talking to my couples about their weddings, and everything I learned about their wedding made me SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for their wedding next February. It is going to be amazing. Thank you SO much Amanda and Ritch. I loved meeting you guys, you so rock! okay---gushing done---picture time.


one of my faves:




do you spot them in this next picture? nothing like a couple that will think outside the box. funniest thing was I was talking to them as if they were right out there with me, even though they of course couldn't hear me. when I finished i turned around and the guy behind me looked at me like i was NUTS!
