Allison and Scott | Engagement Session | Chicago



Ohhh how we love this family! Thank you, thank you, thank you Marcy Glink at Great Events, Event Planner extraordinaire, for introducing us to Leslie Kind. We had a blast working with you on her son, Michael's wedding to Fran and we're so excited about Allison and Scott's wedding in November!

Allison and Scott met through mutual friends and they hit it off that night but it wasn't until months later did they meet up again at a Single's Valentine's Day dinner and instantly connected again spending the entire night talking as if no one else was there. The rest is history!

We can't wait for our wedding day you two lovies!!!!

xoxo,

Ashley & Greg | Chicago Engagement Photography



Their story is super cute... and not love at first sight says Ashley, far from it as Greg was pursuing one of her friends. They met at a local Chicago bar, and she hit it off with his roommate. It wasn't until a few years later when she was studying abroad in Spain, did their relationship started to blossom... and her phone bill. When she returned home to Chicago that summer, it was like they had been dating for years. And can you guess where they spent a lot of their time? If you said the Cubs stadium you'd be absolutely right. Since her dad has been a season ticket holder forever, he pulled some strings and their name is in lights! Love it!

When Bob and I met with Ashley and Greg, and her mom, Terrie, I had my fingers crossed when we left the building they live in. We really loved meeting them all. When we got the call saying they wanted us to photograph their wedding, we couldn't have been happier!!! Every thing about Ashley is amazing. She is truly beautiful inside and out... and Greg adores her, which makes him so adorable! They make the sweetest couple... and just wait until you see their wedding photos! I'm posting them next!

xoox!

We're Engaged | Our New Book



We are proud to share our new book on our blog "WE'RE ENGAGED: Photographing Vibrant and Joyful Portraits of the Happy Couple". It was a fun collaboration by Bob and I and we are proud to share it with you all. We are so thankful to Amherst Media and Harvey Goldstein for asking us to collaborate with them on this book. What an honor! And thank you to all our amazing couples who trust us with these special moments in their lives. We hope that you all enjoy this book as much as we do!

Here's a description of what our book is about:
Today's brides and grooms-to-be have grown up inundated by world-class photography on the Internet, television, magazines, and social networking sites. Therefore, it's no surprise that these savvy, image-conscious consumers have high expectations when commissioning their engagement portraits. They want unique, innovative images that make them look great and reflect their personal style as individuals and as a couple. In this book, acclaimed photographers Bob and Dawn Davis show you how to rise to that lofty goal and deliver memorable, personalized images from each session. Covering the process from start to finish, you'll learn how to select locations, work with clients on their styling, get great poses even from camera-shy subjects, and find (or create) amazing lighting indoors and out, all day long. Lighting diagrams paired with each final image selection, along with supporting image variations from the same session, make it easy to learn!

You can find it at book store near you or online at at Amherst Media

Rocio & Cyrus | Chicago Engagement Photography



When you know, you just know. I can tell that when Rocio and Cyrus met, they just knew that they were meant to be. Look at the way he looks at her! I love it. They met at work, and after a few weeks of subtle flirting, they went on their first date. For her birthday, Cyrus took her to Maui to celebrate. Little did she know, he was preparing for his proposal. He took Rocio out to dinner for her birthday and then wanted to give her a "gift" so he walked her down to the moonlit beach and proposed. She said "yes" and the rest is history! I'm pretty sure this was an amazing, birthday, vacation, proposal...!!!

Bob and I met this gorgeous couple through Claire Weller at Big City Bride and we are so happy for the introduction. Bob photographed their engagement session last year in early November at the Alfred Caldwell Lilly Pool where they sipped wine and walked amongst all the beautiful fall colors. So pretty! And they wanted some sunset evening photos along the Chicago River which are always a favorite of mine.

We recently photographed their wedding and talk about colorful... I can't wait to share those images!

Enjoy!!!

Alex & Chris | Chicago Engagement Photography



Oh my gosh, how cute are Alex and Chris? WAY CUTE! I died when Alex's mom said that Chris was into boxing and that the boxing ring may be an option for their engagement session. And then when Alex agreed… I was like YES!!!! When Bob and I meet with our potential couples we always like to let them know that our style is all about the couple. Sure, we consider our photography timeless and classic with a fun, fresh twist. We are not formulaic and we, very much, like our photos to reflect who our clients are, not who Bob is as a photographer. These special events in peoples lives are about them, not us. So, when a fun shoot like Alex and Chris's engagement session comes up, we are always thrilled!!!

Bob, and our assistant who is also our daughter Alli, met them at Franklin Street Boxing Club Gym in Chicago where Alex boxed her soon to be husband and it was a TKO! Haha… seriously so cute, Alex in heels with her pink gloves! I love it!

They headed off to Eleven Lincoln Park, the cutest old school Jewish diner in Chicago! Sipping on a milkshake and hanging out in the candy shop made for some really cute photos! Then off to Chicago Union Station and Chicago North Avenue Beach for a crazy fun feather pillow fight! I just love that Alex and Chris were up for some fun!

We are beyond thrilled to be working with this family again, as we photographed their sister, Jillian's wedding to Brad in 2010 at the Chicago Hilton. Alex's parents, Debbie and Steve are so gracious and so fun… and we can't thank them enough for trusting us to capture their daughter's weddings! And a huge thank you to Reva Nathan for introducing us years ago to this wonderful family!

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did editing them!

Much love and blessings!

~ Dawn
