Kendra and Mike | North Shore Engagement Session

Kendra and Mike are a fun and down-to-earth couple, who are getting married this May in the outdoor garden at Phipps Conservatory!  I knew that I liked them within the first few minutes of meeting them, and learned that we have quite a few interests in common. This couple loves to be outside, especially on their bikes, and they also love to taste craft beer.  Two things that Barry and I love to do!  We talked about some of our favorite bike routes around the city, and yes, some of those routes include craft beer tasting.  And favorite places to grab a bite to eat!

The day couldn’t have been more beautiful for their engagement session.  We started in the middle of the afternoon with a cloudless sky.  I’m not the least bit afraid of photographing in the bright, midday sun- bring it!  When taking pictures, bright, overhead sunlight can create challenges, but if you know how to work with the sun to use it to your advantage, you can get some amazing and diverse images.  Which is exactly the end result of Kendra and Mike’s engagement session.  Here are a few of my favorites!
