The Finn family is the ultimate example of “Chi-rish,” and they have been celebrating their Irish heritage in downtown Chicago for almost 40 years. (Naturally, I broke my traditional uniform for work and wore green.)

Katie and Jason had their first date on the canal in downtown Indianapolis, and that part of the city was important in the early days of their relationship, since it was where Jason lived at the time.

A one-year dating anniversary is a wonderful time for a session— you’re just far enough along in your relationship that you know it has staying power, but it’s still pretty fresh, too. A one-year dating anniversary session has the potential to become one you’ll look back on for decades to come, remembering early days of your relationship.

If you’re looking for a way to elevate your engagement session experience, I recommend taking instruction from Tiffany and Joe, who decided to use their engagement session as an excuse for a getaway. Their destination was Bloomington, Indiana— a place important to both of them as the home of Indiana University. IU is Tiffany’s alma mater, and Joe is an IU sports fan, but their engagement session was the first time they went to Bloomington together. As you can see from these images, IU is a glorious campus— endlessly romantic and just soaked in a sense of history. And their dog, Scout, joined in for a few shots!

This session is proof that engagement is just one reason to hire a professional photographer. Lillie and Caleb received this session with me as a gift from Lillie’s mother as a commemoration of their recent move to New York City. She wanted them to have portraits to remember this time in their lives, and I was touched to be the one chosen to mark the occasion.
