Lauren and Phil - Engagement

I cannot wait for Lauren and Phil's wedding. They're getting married in the Florida Keys and it's going to be one hell of a great time! Until then, here's some of my favorites from their engagement session in Indiana Dunes State Park. That's right, Indiana has some incredible photogenic sand dunes and some great views of Lake Michigan.

This has to be the most beautiful I have ever seen the lake. The colors alone make this entire shoot!

It should be pretty obvious, but going around the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina for an engagement session is one hell of a way to spend an afternoon! Even when the fog and the rain started coming through the mountains we still had a great time.

Abu Dhabi Engagement | Kate & Joe

Here it is, I'm finally posting the reason why I was flown all the way over to the United Arab Emirates! Kate and Joe, also known as the coolest couple ever, flew me out to the UAE for their engagement session. It was by far the best engagement session ever. I've had the pleasure of working with some amazing couples and each engagement session has been so much fun, but honestly they're the only couple to fly me across the ocean and keep me occupied for over a week, so of course they take the cake! Don't worry though, if you're interested in claiming the title as the Coolest Client EVER all you need to do is take me somewhere amazing. If you ask me it's a small price to pay for greatness and of course the fame that comes with title. So maybe that's a lot to as for, but I just love traveling! Back to the important thing, Kate and Joe. Their story makes you believe in fate. With them everything fell into place so easily. Before they even met each other, they both decided to move out the UAE to begin a new style of teaching to kids in the Middle East. They were both on the same flight, but they never saw each other. Luckily for them they were placed in the same hotel in Abu Dhabi and when they were eating breakfast in the morning they met for the first time. They quickly fell in love with one another, the place, and of course their life in together in Abu Dhabi. They may be getting married here in Chicago, but they couldn't leave the UAE or Abu Dhabi out of their wedding. So when they contacted me their first question was are you filling to fly out. Immediately the answer was a resounding YES! Here is what we were able to capture during a week of fun while I got to know Kate and Joe and while I fell in love with the UAE.
