Megan and Enrique • A Garfield Park Conservatory Engagement Session

I hadn’t met Megan and Enrique prior to this session. It was a simple, easy breezy phone call where we both agreed to create some magic together to celebrate their engagement. When we arrived to the Conservatory, within minutes they told me that they trusted me - that they wanted me to do whatever I felt called to do.

As a photographer, there is truly nothing sweeter than this.

I forgot how much a statement like “I trust you” means when it comes to our creative process - how much it helps to unleash stigmas, blocks and judgments that we subconsciously put on ourselves from time to time; so to be given the freedom to fully embrace my environment, them as my subjects, to witness their relationship and their connection from a place of creativity - witnessing the small things.. not just the obvious.

It changes everything. And for them, and their trust, I’m grateful.
