and I stayed an extra day in Chicago and shot their engagement session last Monday. Chicago is THEIR city. It’s where they met and spent the first part of their relationship together. As we walked up and down the busy streets of the windy city, they showed me where they used to work, where they met, their favorite restaurants, their favorite fountain, etc. I felt like not only was I getting to shoot a fun session but I was also getting a professional tour of Chicago!! These two are amazing. It was HOT…. like really HOT. We took a couple mini water and gatorade breaks and I’m so thankful they were willing to stick with me for close to 2 hours! We toured Millennium Park and I got to see the BEAN and how Chicagoans spend their evenings on hot summer days. There was a concert going on, children playing in the fountains and tourists taking their obligatory “Bean” pictures. Despite the heat, it was an amazing evening! I loved getting to know Patrick and Anna a little more. They are so easy to talk to and that makes any engagement session so enjoyable. I can’t WAIT to see them again… next time a little closer to home! :) Enjoy some of my favorites!!
Patrick and Anna Maria, THANK YOU for making this happen! I’m so glad we were able to shoot your engagements in YOUR city!! :) I had a blast! Enjoy!!
Definitely a favorite!!
Just love her laugh! She’s so much fun!
Funny story! One of Anna’s best friends is in charge of the landscaping in downtown Chicago! So we shot some in her beautiful flowers!
I don’t think Anna Maria could have worn a better necklace!! It matched EVERYTHING!
Love this one too! You should have heard me yelling instructions from across the 4 lane highway! haha
Last but not least, a few shots at the EL! :)
