I was super excited when Darren reached out to me to see if I’d be willing to photograph his and Kayleigh’s engagement photos! These two are family to me and so it meant a lot to be able to capture this special time in their lives. I couldn’t help but be proud of these two and all they had been through as a couple. Everyone in the family knew that marriage was in their future, but to finally see it unfolding and to be able to photograph them together one last time before moving into the next phase of their lives was such a privilage.
Our schedules lined up for a Cince de Mayo session and we decided to meet at Catigny Park that afternoon. We were blessed with seriously the most perfect spring day, the weather was absolutely amazing and the sunset was idealic. We started their engagement session near the visitor center and wound our way back towards the McCormick Mansion. Cantigny Park will always be one of my favorite places for photos due to how well the grounds are kept and the vast space to roam and be creative.
