Do-Rite Donuts Engagement Session – McKinley + David

May 20

Filed in: Engagement

You DOnut know how much I love you.

If there was a theme to this downtown Chicago engagement session- that just might be it.

I met with McKinley and David a few months back at the Bridgeport Coffeehouse.  With all 3 of us being huge coffee lovers, it was the perfect morning meet. There were lattes, there were donuts, there were warm chats about the engagement, wedding plans, reality tv shows, and everything in between. After a few hours and a few coffees, a beautiful friendship formed and these two kids hired me for their wedding day.

When it came time for engagement photos, I told McKinley and David to think of places that were special to them. After a few options, they finally settled on Do-Rite-Donuts and the Chicago Riverwalk.  After a morning coffee shop and donut run in the rain, David popped the big question, so you can say that donuts are kind of this dynamic duos thing.

The Engagement Session

We met at Do-Rite Donuts for a few sweet treats and coffee, of course, and then headed down to the Chicago Riverfront to get some of this epic city in our background. Spring and smiles were in full force and the city definitely did not disappoint. I absolutely adore their playfulness and love for the little things. They truly let all guards down, let me in on their relationship and just spent our time together having fun with each other – what engagement sessions are all about!

These two are full of so much love and silliness and every time I meet with them I have so much damn fun. I am so excited to capture their big day at The Joinery next summer!
