Colleen + Samir Engagement I Cantigny, Wheaton, Chicago Engagement Photographer


Colleen and Samir are the CUTEST. Maybe it’s because they’ve been together for over 7 years, maybe it’s because they’re totally comfortable with each other, and maybe it’s because they’re both gorgeous :) Either way, it was so much fun spending Sunday afternoon with the two of them at Cantigny in Wheaton. AND we totally lucked out with the weather, it was 70, overcast, and no wind. I absolutely love this session, please enjoy the pics!

    You guys look like you are in a magazine photo shoot. It is very weird for me to think that I am envious of someone I’ve known from the day you were born, without a doubt I’m quite positive how proud your parents must be of both of you, Love you guys, George
