“Above is part two from our dramatic and prop engagement photography session with Jeremi + Lianne. In capturing too many amazing photos with Jeremi + Lianne, we decided on a second bonus photos blog post. With three props during our single photo session, first a motorcycle, second a knife, and third guns, we decided to differentiate the time later to capture ultra modern editorial style photos photographing J+L at night in an edgy photographic style using dramatic lighting. Lianne looked stunning, and Jeremi well he was very nicely dressed too. They brought along to the shoot, a couple of their toys and weaponry accessories for this part of the photo session. Another first for us, we loved the edginess, incorporating television and movie inspired poses and photography concepts, dramatic lighting techniques, and wow it was fantastic how the variety of night photos turned out. J+L, you two were simply amazing client’s to work with, looking like two celebrities. Hope you both enjoy seeing the completed photos. Thanks Lianne + Jeremi in looking absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to the wedding day! Vayamos a México.”

“We had a great time working with Drew + Tiffany. Although it was quite chilly on their engagement session ( don’t let the sun and beach fool you ) their love for each other and excitement for the engagement session kept them warm. When discussing their relationship and personalities we decided to spend the afternoon at a few stops around Chicago… at the sandy beach, in nature, and Tiffany especially liked our style where we focus on fashion inspired styled photos in a factory or industrial location in Chicago. Drew + Tiffany traveled to Chicago from Nashville Tennessee for their Spring engagement session. They currently live in Nashville, but both Drew and Tiffany’s families resides in the Chicago area. Chicago will be the location of the couple’s Fall 2011 wedding.


For a few years, Drew lived in Florida. So at the start of his and Tiffany’s long distance relationship, many of hours and dates were often spent in the water or walking along the sandy beach. On their session’s day in Chicago, we were wishing we were in Florida and hoping for warmer weather as the day went on. When we arrived at the beach for shooting some Chicago beach engagement photography pics, it was empty which was ideal for the photos, but there was a reason why the lakefront was cleared… it was incredibly cold and a super windy day in the Windy City. We’re talking over 25+ mile an hour winds. So especially to Tiffany, she did really well putting a smile on and not letting the blowing sand and gusts against her legs effect the photos one bit. After that quick trip to the beach, we searched for a more natural setting and ventured to a nearby park searching for a beautiful nature location for some soft and cuddly photos. A few early Spring plants were starting to bloom and we found a quite spot with much less wind to sit the couple down in the tall grasses.


We had only meet Tiffany + Drew before this day over the internet and on Facebook and via email. So we had a ton to talk about and enjoyed this first face to face meeting and getting to know each of them. We learned about their careers, them moving around and currently living outside of the Chicago area, the engagement proposal and the big upcoming wedding. Although Tiffany and Drew went to high school together the two of them didn’t know each other very well, until a few years ago reuniting and talking more on Facebook. In high school they were a year apart in school, so they did have a few things in common, but after catching up and chatting on a regular basis, Tiffany says “Inbox messages turned to text, which turned to phone calls, which turned to a trip to Naples in February! And the rest is history. : )” Drew is a professional golf player who at the time was playing golf daily and living in sunny Florida. It was interesting learning about his competitions, world wide tournament tours, and visiting locations around the world. Both Drew + Tiffany are very dedicated to their careers, so the relationship just kinda happened one day. Until Tiffany met Drew, she said her focus was on completing her degree in a field she loves Behavioral Therapy. We asked how and if the engagement proposal happened in Illinois, Tennessee or Florida. Tiffany shared their ♥ proposal story with us. It was up North and here in Chicago.


“Drew convinced me to come home for a long weekend and anniversary party. We had breakfast at my parent’s house and were supposed to go to Woodfield Mall. On our way to the mall I noticed we had passed nearly every exit to the mall, and mentioned that the mall was “way back there.” Drew then mentioned that we aren’t going to the mall, then handed me a blindfold and instructed me to put it on. Several minutes later I was led into a room, took off my blindfold, and saw a beautiful set-up :) Drew had organized four hours at a private spa – pool, hot tub, and steam room for two. It was decorated with wine, candles, gifts, and my suitcase was ready to go with clothing and toiletries for later that evening. He proposed poolside and it was perfect. Drew told me to get ready for our dinner reservation, but first we would have to stop home and let the dogs out. When I walked in his parent’s house, there was a big surprise party! It was an amazing day and night, and I couldn’t ask for anything more!”


Drew and Tiff we hope you two in Nashville and family & friends both here in Chicago & down South all enjoy our blogged favorites from your Chicago engagement photography session. We are so excited to be working with you and we can’t wait for your wedding this November!”
