Chicago Portrait at Big Shoulders Coffee: Ashley + Connor

coffee-shop-engagement-001 On a brisk fall day, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Ashley and Connor at their favorite local Chicago coffee shop: Big Shoulders Coffee. You might recognize Ashley from this shoot featuring her company, La Belle Fleur Events. Working in the wedding industry, Ashley doesn't make it in front of the camera too often, so I was super excited when she asked me to take portraits of her and her boyfriend. We walked through the motions of a Sunday afternoon date. I have to say that I LOVED working inside Big Shoulders cafe. It was a completely new setting for me and gave me the opportunity to try something new. The photos of Ashley and Connor smiling and chatting over coffee through the storefront window are definitely some new favorites of mine. From Big Shoulders, we wandered over to Lincoln Park to walk and enjoy the beautiful day. Avid Scrabble players, the couple brought along a board and played an abbreviated match in the park. Ashley and Connor - you guys were so much fun to work with. I hope you enjoy these! :)
