Chicago Engagement by Cristina G Photography
July 16, 2012
Cristina G Photography had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful couple who might as well quit their day jobs and model full-time (I mean, come ON, with that orange dress!) Utilizing the breathtaking views and perfect evening light at North Beach, the couple showcased their love for each other-and their pup, Penny-in this sweet e-session.

From Cristina G Photography... Departing from all the heart-shaped balloon/picnic blanket engagement sessions of recent times, we set out to create a simple and fun day in the life of this amazing Chicago couple. Lauran and Marty are "marathoners", not "sprinters." :) They ran the Chicago Marathon together last year and are now planning the perfect backyard, fall wedding.

We met right before sunset and spent some time in the park with their furry baby Penny. A walk to the beach and a sunset dance at North Avenue, and we ended with a stroll down State Street in the heart of Gold Coast, right before dinner. It was the perfect way to unwind after a long day at work!

This engagement session is fun, simple and full of life and emotion — a perfect description of the couple they are today. And yes, the cover girl-worthy, bright orange dress and hot Kate Spade purse Lauran carried for dinner are to die for! Swoon!
