Jon and Sam are a couple of best friends who grew up down the street from each other, back when Sam was a tomboy. As it often happens, friends turn into lovers and they got married this November. But before they got married, I got to meet them on the Shore of Lake Michigan in Evanston and get to know them a bit better. These two are so fun: they love to laugh, they love their family, and they love each other.  So much.

Sam should teach smiling lessons.

And, because I can't resist, here's just a little teaser of their wedding. Night photography makes our world go 'round.

A little plug for engagement shoots: we are now offering them complementary with every wedding package because we think they are really important. The engagement shoot is the perfect time for us to get to know all your best angles and for you to get comfortable with us taking your picture. It makes a huge difference when the wedding day rolls around. Take advantage!
