I loved photographing this engagement session at the Lyric Opera in Chicago!
Meet Delaney & Corey! We connected this fall as they got engaged and started planning their wedding day. I loved seeing Delaney’s name pop up in my inbox because Delaney’s brother and sister-in-law – my past couple and favorites – are Erin and Johnny! These full-circle moments truly have my heart.
Delaney and Corey went to college together at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign but never officially met there. Delaney knew of Corey through a friend, but they officially met online several years ago. This October, Corey proposed to Delaney at their apartment in Chicago. Now, they’re planning their September 2024 wedding day!
Over the recent weeks, I’ve had so much fun getting to know Delaney and Corey as we planned details for their engagement session. They’re getting married in the Chicago suburbs, so it was meaningful for their engagement session to take place in the city that they call home. I love capturing a mix of both between engagement and wedding photos!
On the day of their engagement session, we were surprised (in the best way!) by a 60-degree mid-November day. Talk about luck! I loved meeting Delaney and Corey at the Lyric Opera to start their engagement session. From there, we wandered around nearby favorite spots to capture the essence of the city and their love. These two are the sweetest, most adorable couple. This session was easy and fun and a blast from start to finish!
I’m looking forward to Delaney and Corey’s wedding day next year!
