Gloria + Michael | Greenhouse Engagement Session | Chicago, IL

Surprise, surprise. I have posted a greenhouse session yet again. I couldn't help myself. The gorgeous greenery and variations of texture all in a well-lit room make greenhouses one of my favorite places to shoot. Perhaps it is somewhat rooted in nostalgia. As a child I would help my mother garden in our front and backyard. Occasional Saturdays were spent accompanying my father to Home Depot, where I would often get lost in the garden section. To me, plants symbolize the very essence of life. I’m trying not to get too science-y over here, but without plants humans wouldn't be able to breathe, as plants are a huge component of our respiration process. What better place to photograph love than in a large house filled with the finest blooming florals and a tremendous sense of wonder? 

Cheers to you, Gloria and Michael. I pray your new journey as husband and wife is filled with adventure, wonder, and joy. Where ever you go and whatever you do, may you constantly bloom.
