Halley and Josh’s Chicago Engagement Session

Here are a few of my favorites from Halley and Josh’s engagement session. I met the couple a few weeks after Valentines Day to discuss their wedding photography options for their upcoming Gallery 1028 ceremony and reception, and during our meeting, they mentioned that they would like to incorporate their dog Minnie in an engagement shoot. Hearing the name Minnie, I had to assume their dog was a petite dog, but I was thrilled to learn that they had a blue Great Dane. For the engagement shoot, they made the smart decision to incorporate their dog for a portion of the shoot, so I was able to focus on both the couple as well as the couple with their dog. I am very happy to have met Minnie and I cannot wait to photograph her as the ring bearer at their wedding ceremony.Halley wore a polka dot dress with an orange belt she picked out for this shoot from Anthropologie, red heels, and carried orange balloons. Josh wore a simple blue button down shirt and jeans. KL

Reasons why their wedding is going to rock:

They are such a fun couple to work with!
They have a super cool dog that they say is blue.
Their wedding is at Gallery 1028, one of my favorite Chicago wedding venues.
and Calihan Catering…… mmmmmm.
They will have Style Matters to DJ their reception.

For their shoot, some DIY props such as cutouts of their first intials and a heart were made.
