In the HISTORY of bbmk engagement sessions… NEVER and I mean NEVER have we had a couple even 20% as playful & silly as these two. You're about to see the amazingness that that equals 🙂
Oh, hello bean. (My view)
Mike's view. ARE YOU KIDDDDDDING ME WITH THAT?! GAH!!!!!! Mike's wins. One of my favorites ❗
Remember middish January… when we had that winter storm warning in Chicago and Indianapolis??? You know… the one where most schools were canceled? The one where they told us to avoid driving? The one that Chicago accumulated 10" of snow… yeah, that one 🙂 Well, THAT was when we decided that the PERFECT engagement sessionesque snow would be falling in Chicago… So into our trusty FJ Cruiser we went… AND BOY OH BOY WAS IT WORRRRTH IT!!!! I'm in LOVE LOVE LOVE with every photo from this session.
See, told you they were fun 🙂
Nothing wrong with a couple of snow angels in the middle of Millennium Park! BTW, usually this park is PACCCCKED TO THE MAXXXX!!! However, THAT day… it was just the four of us and a lonely security guard. 🙂
BRING IT IN TIGHT!
Another favorite!!!! ❗ It really is SO them… Save the dates? Yes. 🙂
Shooting in the snow creates AMAZING black and whites. I'm in LOVE with the contrast. LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOVE! ANNNNND… ANOTHER FAVORITE! ❗ (gosh, what's the point of favorites if you pick them all?!)
Does this make you smile? It should. Because it's fun. Okay? k. NOW are you smiling???
THENNNNN we went up to their apartment to warm up for a few minutes while they changed into some new clothes…
How much do you love those shoes!? BTW, we brought toe warmers and she had them in there (we actually all had them… but I think she needed them most!) Those things SAVED THE DAY!!!!!!
Mike's. And… his favorite ❓ He wins… again… hands down… Jerk. 😉
Hi Chicago 🙂
Wedding: August 14, 2010 • Champaign, Ill.
I'm a BIG fan of these two. Duhtown.
~bobbi+mike ❗ + ❓
Mike and I looked ridiculous… but we we were warm!
Hello security guard! Not so lonely now… 😉
MY HILAAAAAARIOUS JOKES NEVER FAIL!!!! 😉 Though, admittedly… it's easy to make her laugh… 🙂 Those are my favorite kind of people. 😀
PS. for those who always ask me what my "hilarious jokes" are… I don't really have any… 🙁 I'm usually just being goofy or maybe saying something funny… Never any real "joke" with a punchline. I think I just started referring to them as jokes to be goofy…. who knows. Sorry to disappoint. 😉
ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THAT CUTENESS!? Dontchya just want to snuggle that husband up?! MAN OH MAN I'm THE luckiest girl in the world! Dont argue with me. He's hot tamales…. even in "bibs" while holding pink shoes. BOOOOYAH!!!!!!
HELLOOOOO BOBBILICIOUS!!!! RE: the improvement of my teeth… I CANNOT EVEN TELL YOU HOW MUCH BETTERRRRRR THEY LOOOOOOK!!!!! A little over a year ago… my teeth were the definition of snaggle teeth. Now, I'm (hopefully) almost through with Invisalign… and couldn't be happier. I'm sure I'll be writing more about that process later… when they're done 🙂

You guys are insane, gorgeous shots!!!
Love the pics of the engaged couple….but LOVE LOVE the picture of you in your artic wear!
WOW! Bobbi and Mike — this is the best EVER! If I had to pick a fave, it would be the one at the top, but I agree with you — they’re all good! CHEERS, my friend!
Love this blog – what a couple! Beautiful pictures, the bean is my favorite, but then I love the Illinois Street shot. Can’t wait to see their wedding 🙂
The kissing bw shot is my fav!! Love these! Shoe warmers are the best! We always taken them on cold days… Def life savers for couples 🙂 thanks for the smiles today 🙂
You are rad. They are rad. The snow is rad. The pictures are rad. The end.

Amazing pictures! I absolutely love the snow so these shots were especially awesome to me. You guys rock!
Whoa! Those are amazing! What troopers you all were!
I LOVE that they are the only 2 people in that 1st shot…I’ve never seen a bean picture that didn’t have tons of other people in it! All of these photos are wonderful!
These are amazing! Who knew the cold, icky snow could be so fun and beautiful?
Amazing session! Seriously so awesome! I love the second shot by the bean – greatness. Glad you had so much fun.
I looooooooooooove these! Each image made me smile! =] You guys are awesome!

Best engagement session I have seen in a long time!

This couple is so sweet! 🙂 I just love their energy! And how fun that they enjoy each other so much….they’re so cute. And how fun is your husband, Bobbi!? He’s cute. And your teeth look wonderific. Inivisalign should hire you to endorse.
i’m in love..in a major kind of way.
This is A-MAZING>> WOW!!!!!
This session almost makes me LIKE snow – GAH!! Every shot is better than the next, too, and it’s so difficult to choose a favorite. Oh, and thanks for posting this “winter inspiration” today; we’re supposed to shoot a senior tomorrow in the new snow that’s falling, so I’m going to draw energy from YOU!! Toe warmers, eh…
Just when I think you two can’t top yourselves….you go ahead and do it anyway!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shots. You rock…enough said.
SO LOVE THIS!! You guys are always amazing, but I am in love with the snow. Love!
Fan-freakin-tastic! I just love every Chicago shoot you do more than the last.
These are so amazing! Romantic and fun and whimsical and jut plain make-a-person-feel-good!
You and Mike are the best of the BEST! This shoot is amazing!
First, I love your blog! You are so funny and your pictures are amazing. I love this shoot, the snow, the bean, beautiful! Can you recommend gloves that are easy for shooting in the cold? I have a trip to Austria in two weeks and can’t even feel the shutter button with my current gloves on!
What a super fun session guys!
So so so many things I love about this session! Great job, guys! SUPER cute and fun couple, too!
HOLY CRAZY SESSION!!! This couple hit it outta the park…SERIOUSLY. Talk about a day to remember…FOREVER. I LOVE IT…FAB JOB AS ALWAYS!!!
Those are great shots, you can feel the love and the fun. I’m usually not fond of superlative comments on photoblogs or flickr, but this is really good.
How much fun was THAT??? I was sad a minute ago and now I do have a smile on my face 🙂 Great, GREAT job! I think your comments are wonderful, too.
In a perfect world, you guys would be back in Chicago this weekend when I’M going to be there to take pics like that of me and my hubby! 🙂 But really, it got me all excited for some snowy goodness. We’re visiting for our 2nd anniversary, I’ve never been before. You should be nice and warm in Jamaica right?
Hands down one of my favorite sessions of yours! Love each and every one of these! You guys rocked the snow like nobody’s business! I want to go frolick in the snow right now and drag my hubby with me…if you’re driving in Westfield and have your cameras, please feel free to photo us! 😉 In all seriousness, I LOOOOOOVE this session!
wow… fantastically and magically amazing!! great job, you two 🙂 I really like that contrasty black and white one. beautiful work!
I can’t stop looking at this post. You two are so amazing!
bobbi, these are ridiculous! I mean totally off the hook! Way to rock this session out like no other! Who says snow ruins a session? Boo-ya…is what I say followed by pointing them to this post! Great job guys!
These are awesome!!! Makes me want to grab the camera and go out in this winter wonderland we have here right now. Too bad somebody borrowed it and hasn’t brought it back. That first picture is my favorite! Very cool!
For a minute or two you make me wish I lived somewhere that really snowed. Then I realize how miserable and whiny I would be and I thank my lucky stars I live in Texas. But I do love these images!
these are so beautiful and show so much love i actually cried.
aww yess i am a romatical soul.
This is hands down my FAVORITE to date. I giggled a lot! AMAZING work. Too cute.
….they are awesome!! (my comment got posted before I was ready)
wow oh wow! how fun! Great great shots. Definitely agree with you on the black and white. My hubs would KILL me if I took my 5d out in the pouring snow… I know they are weather proof – are they THAT weather proof or did you guys do something?
oh and by the way, LOVE LOVE LOVE the photo of bobbi at the end. BEAUTIFUL!
So amazingly gorgeous!! Wow!
WOW!!! so gorgeous. All of them!
Erin yelling into cone = save the date
would be lots of fun
This is my favorite shoot you guys have ever done. LOVE THEM. And if you had any doubt about it when you were laying in the snow whether it was worth it…IT WAS X100!
Wow! I’ve been lurking for several years, but I just HAVE to de-lurk for these photos. They’re my very favorites EVER. You guys are AMAZING!!!!!!
Pure fabulousness! The one of them on Illinois st. is to die for!
These are the finest snow scene engagement photos I’ve ever seen. My goosh, so inspiring.
…always outdoing yourselves…. always! Seriously, these are amazing. Absolutely amazing.
And, that last shot of you Bobbi – cutest picture EVERRRRR.
Loved it! Beautiful as Always.
These are freaking ah.maz.ing! Seriously. Like you, I love the contrast with the black and whites. You guys are kinda good at what you do, ya know. 🙂 Love it!
LOVE these!!! Great job!
[…] out more of the session here. No Comments bobbi and mike […]
These are absolutely gorgeous! Ya’ll captured them perfectly!!!
wow. you guys are SO hardcore!! I love that everyone was game for a shoot in a blizzard! it came out so great! inspiring!!!
The pic of Mike holding the pink shoes? Fantastic! That’s a frame-worthy pic if I ever saw one. He’s TOO cute!
Man oh man. What an awesome session. You two are crazy. Thats why I love you more and more. My fave is the second fave of Bobbi’s pick.
Love you both.
WOW! that really was AMAZING! you guys knocked it out of the park! so so cool!
Can I please just add that your black and whites are out of this world!
you two are ridiculously ADORABLE – not only in your couples photos, but as yours as photographers. Can’t wait to hopefully bump into you at WPPI!
signed one of your BIGGEST fans! x
favorite shots EVER. love.every.single.one :0)
This is by far the cutest engagement session I have ever seen. Amazing pictures and they totally make me want pictures from you guys even more! I will have some before I die!!!
oh i completely disagree! that very first one is my VERY favorite from the whole session.
AMAZING …. You guys are so awesome!!!
SO much fun! Love ’em all. I’m sure you all were freezing but it was definitely so worth it!
Yea! An August 14th wedding. That’s my anniversary date and it’s the best because your half-year anniversary is Valentine’s – in case you didn’t know that already. I didn’t figure it out until our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple. I’m a little slow, though.
You got every photographer’s dream couple for this one! Nice of them to allow you both to trample through the storm with them for these AMAZING shots. I love every one too! I really really love that they have red noses. What character that gives the photos and such a memory making experience.
You guys continue to INSPIRE! 🙂
Such a fun and different engagement session! You’re right about the contrast!!! Wowza 🙂 Great job guys!
LOVE THIS SESSION!!! I think this is the best engagement session ya’ll have done yet! Wow….speechless.
We were just there the weekend of 1/22! I was really hoping to have a session while we were there but it was so much fun just wandering around and exploring the city! AMAZING!!!! Great job, as usually!!! BTW, I love how you are you…very inspiring!
I LOVE this shoot!! You two are so inspiring! I sometimes feel like I”m going to look stupid or people will think I’m stupid for laying on the ground or doing crazy things to get the shot, but seeing your work is like getting permission to not feel bad about being crazy about what you do. 🙂
Your images are beautiful. Your work is inspiring. and YOU are the cutest/coolest pair of photographers ever. Just LOVE your blog!!!!!!
These are amazing, amazing, amazing. So nice to see Chicago so empty. I would love something just like this for my engagement photos. Way to go!
One of my fav sessions you guys have ever done! Looooove the snow!
I’m ashamed to say I don’t think I’ve ever commented, but this?? This has to my my absolute favorite session of yours ever.
Always I see your blog and I love your work. Pictures are amazing, my two favorites are the first and the last.
