We love when the couples we photograph invite us to their homes and allow us to document their lives and personalities. The trust they put in us to document their lives through images is very humbling. Debbie and Will’s home shows so much character and their passion for food and cooking is truly delightful. Both Will and Debbie are registered dietitians. Also, Debbie is the writer behind the food blog Dietitian Debbie Dishes where she shares her expertise about food and makes delicious recipes. Debbie’s food blog is beautifully written and inspiring (we tried her recipe for vegetarian burrito bowl recently and it was truly delicious!)
For their engagement session we wandered through Humboldt Park which both Debbie and Will are very fond of, as they lived in the neighborhood for couple of years. During the sunset, the park itself revealed so much beauty, as we hiked the paths and trails and explored its beautiful lagoons. Despite the nuisance of ever-present mosquitoes, coming to life after heavy late spring Chicago rains, Debbie’s and Will calmness and warm nature showcased through the entire portrait session. Later in the summer they’ll be embarking on an elopement road trip throughout the United Stated and it’s been our absolute pleasure to document their love prior to the their journey through these images.
