Rachel and DJ’s engagement session in suburban Chicago was the perfect way to celebrate the cozy season. It is a crisp fall day, even unseasonably warm, making it the perfect day for their engagement session. When I connected with Rachel, the one wish she had was for their session to feel like them. We decide that the best place to do that is their own home.

Engagement Session at home.

To start the session, Rachel chose a classic sweater and jeans, while DJ opted for a button down shirt that complimented Rachel perfectly. They cuddled on their kitchen counter, and cozied up near the fireplace. We headed out to their patio and they popped champagne, and celebrated themselves. As we captured photos of the happy couple laughing and enjoying each other’s company, they toasted to their love with a bottle of bubbly. The champagne added a fun and celebratory element to the shoot, and helped create some truly authentic and intimate moments.

After capturing some timeless shots, we switched things up and took a more casual approach. Rachael changed into a fall dress, while BJ opted for a nice sweater. The change in wardrobe allowed for more playful and relaxed shots, as they cuddled in the woods with their dog.

A Furry Friend

Their lovable dog, was an essential part of the session. He was a natural in front of the camera, and his playful energy added an extra level of joy and spontaneity to the photos. He even made a cameo in their formal shots, wearing a dashing scarf that matched their outfit.

Overall, Rachael and DJ’s in-home engagement session in suburban Chicago was a beautiful and authentic celebration of their love. The mix of formal and casual outfits, the addition of champagne, and of course, the presence of their furry friend, made for a truly unforgettable experience.
