Did I ever mention that Chicago has been so good to us? True story. Follow me for a few seconds…
Earlier in July, I shot Kati + Mike’s beautiful downtown wedding in Chicago. While I was there, I met with two great couples, Cassie + Derek and Kelli + Shawn. Both couples are having their 2013 wedding in the STL area and this guy (points to self) is documenting them. :)
Fast forward to September, we find ourselves back in the Windy City to shoot Kelli and Shawn’s awesome engagement session downtown. While we were there, I received an inquiry from Leslie + Chris regarding their 2013 wedding (now that is fate). We met up with Leslie and spent the better part of the morning chatting with her about their wedding plans before heading back to STL.
Which brings us to October for Leslie + Chris’ engagement session… Leslie + Chris wanted Chicago to be the backdrop of their session since it’s their new home (they are originally from St. Louis) and it would be the opposite setting from their winery wedding. The challenge was finding time for Ali and I to make the drive back up to Chicago during the month of October which is a crazy busy month for us. The solution? A day trip to Chi-town. Yep, that’s right… Leslie + Chris were super awesome and made the arranges to fly us up for the day to do the session. We spent the afternoon rocking downtown Chicago… starting with their wicked loft/condo then checking out the L train and finally ending the session off with the beautiful skyline of the city. Before we knew it, we were back on a plane and heading home.
Like I said, Chicago has been great to us. I can’t wait to find out what the city has in store for us next. :)
