It’s not often that someone else steals the spotlight from a couple that’s being photographed for their engagement session, but it does happen from time to time. In this instance we have Marley. Marley is perhaps one of the most mellow pups you could ever meet. Mellow in terms of attitude however Marley will choose whatever path he likes when it comes to posing for images. So there were a couple moments where we would pause to “reset” him, but otherwise he was a fantastic edition.
Tanya and Jim wanted to have their engagement photos in a spot which has somewhat of a relaxed feel. One such perfect spot is in downtown Long Grove. So long as there isn’t a chocolate or strawberry fest going on at the time, there’s typically quite a bit of space for some fantastic portraits. And it’s spots like this which can really make you appreciate a city such as Chicago. If you leave Long Grove, you can be getting skyline shots of Chicago in under an hour. With so many locations to select from, this truly is a fantastic city in which to be a photographer.
And now…onwards to the images!!
