Lindsey and Mark – Chicago Engagement Session

Lindsey and Mark met each other at work! Lindsey needed some help moving and Mark volunteered his truck to help with the move. That move later turned into drinks and great conversation where they realized they wanted to be more than coworkers. They dated secretly since their company was really small (they don’t recommend this by the way!) for almost six months!

Although they work at different companies now, the pandemic has them both working together at home again. This time their English Bulldog, Gus, gets to join them.

This session was supposed to be in April. Obviously THAT didn’t happen. I’m so glad we were able to squeeze in this session when we did because pretty much right after it, Chicago announced Wisconsin as a mandatory quarantine state and I wouldn’t have been able to photograph their session!

I took my husband along for their session, and he played the role of bodyguard, bag holder, water boy, etc. while Lindsey and Mark posed for the camera. There were several times when my husband asked people to turn around so they didn’t get in the photos! HAH!

I didn’t realize it but one of the spots that I had scoped out for their session was actually where Mark had proposed to Lindsey! It is a gorgeous location right by a pond with the Chicago skyline in the background. It was fun to think about the moment when Mark got down on one knee just a few short months ago! Mark proposed to Lindsey on a SUPER cold January day and had planned a surprise party with all of their closest friends and family waiting for them afterwards!

These two were SO much fun. Mark let his personality shine in front of the camera and Lindsey’s laughter was infectious. Despite them telling me they were a bit nervous to be in front of the camera, they were TOTAL naturals.

I’m so excited for these two to tie the knot at their wedding next year in Arizona! It’s going to be a beautiful day celebrating the two of them! Enjoy a few favorites from their engagement session!
