Brendan + Joanna’s Chicago Engagement.

The last time I met up with Joanna and Brendan it was for coffee on a cold, snowy, March afternoon to chat about their September wedding at Over the Vines. At that time, spring {and summer} seemed like they might never come around to our little corner of the world. Fast forward to last week, when I got to hang out with them again in their hometown of Chicago and we were blessed with the most beautifully perfect sunny and windy weather for their engagement session. I lived in Chicago for a summer in college and I personally think there is no better place you could be for the months of June, July & August – street fairs, patio drinking, afternoons at the beach – perfection.

Brendan + Joanna {and their sweet pup, Amos!} are so laid back, in love, and fun to be around….we enjoyed sweeping city views and crazy wind at Montrose Harbor, a little taste of the country in the heart of the city, and some time walking around the Ravenswood and Lakeview neighborhoods. It was just the Chicago fix I needed. Can’t wait until the next time I get to see them for their wedding this fall!


Ester - Holy wind! These are so lovely. I especially like the last five, especially the ones with the cool walls and shadows obviously.
