The last of Samantha & Jared's Engagement photos. . .

Sorry I didn't post last night. It was a bit of a busy day, trying to knock out a bunch of images that I was editing for a follow photographer that I've been assisting with two awesome engagement sessions.

I love editing images almost as much as I love taking images . . . almost.  It's when I make my transition from being a people-pleaser to an artist. It's great fun. I can usually only take a few hours at a time before I find I have to get up and do something else. I'm not sure why. It could be that my eyes get tired of looking at a screen or maybe my brain just needs a break. But I figured you might enjoy knowing that I don't actually sit in front of my computer 24/7 and only take breaks to take more pictures.

Okay, so here are some of the last photos I'll post from this engagement session. I know for some of you this is old hat since they were on my facebook page (Create link) (I would love it if you would support me by being a fan of my page!) but they're not on my blog . . . and my blog needs to have them too. And, I liked it. :) It was a fun engagement session. Doing engagement photography in downtown Chicago (or wedding photography for that matter) is always good times. Actually, most all major cities have a lot to offer for unique, out-of-the-box photography. A game I kind of like to play when I'm doing photography in Chicago is looking for cool light, no matter the background. If I find cool light I'll have a cool image. Cool light can be found in strangest places. And I often feel that it is my job to find it. You know, I swear it's like hide and go seek. But even more rewarding. Sometimes I'm pretty sure it's waiting for me and my camera to get grab it. It's like it says to me, "Hey you! Party in your camera is about to happen if you come over here!" My camera and I are all about a good party with light and friends. Put the two together and you have something really going for you. :)

Ahhhhhh, the joy of light at the edge of a an overhang. It's something amazing for sure.

 Stairways are great places to find light too. 

Angels aren't they?

Shadows are another thing I really like a lot! Okay, I like them a lot a lot. 

Soft light . . . so calming.

It's funny just how happy these couples are when we are out taking pictures. I mean, last I checked, a lot of people think that getting your picture taken just isn't fun. LOL. NOT ANYMORE! We have good times when we go out. . . that's one of my secrets to good pictures. If you aren't having a good time, you aren't going to get good photos. People want to see real joy in images of themselves. Ya know? 

No long title under this one. Sound good? 

I think we should just enjoy this one too. What do ya say?

What would an engagement session be in Chicago without a little grunge?

She said "yes" with an extra big smile when she saw that bling I'm sure. :) 

Signing off for today. God bless your socks off,

Capture. Create. Discover.
Something Amazing!
