“In being engagement and Chicago wedding photographers, we meet a number of amazing couples and it’s always exciting learning what they do for work. Matt + Stephanie are most definitely no exception… as they both work as agents. ( Although, due to the nature of their jobs, we are going to leave their exciting job details private. ) During their Chicago engagement photography session we learned that Matt + Stephanie met while both working a job in the City of Chicago and Matt invited Steph to lunch where they instantly fell for each other. After about 8 months of dating while both living in Chicago, Matt was transferred to DC where he now lives, several states apart from Stephanie. M+S are another one of our couple’s which we have photographed who have perfected the long distance relationship engagement and long distance planning of their wedding.
Since Steph lives here in Chicago and Matt in Washington, they are apart from each other pretty often. But when Matt + Steph were together for this Chicago engagement portrait session, it wasn’t difficult to catch them being incredibly cute around each when we positioned them close, flirting and smiling very often. These two are really, truely in love and this made our session super easy. Matt + Stephanie we are looking forward to your upcoming Summer time Chicago wedding at one of our all time favorite Chicago hotel wedding venues the Chicago Blackstone Hotel. You are such a cute couple and we can’t wait to see you married. Hope you enjoyed our selection of our favorite engagement images from the downtown Chicago photo shoot. Enjoy the next few months and the rest of your engagement and talk to you soon.”
Matt + Stephanie have planned for both their Chicago wedding reception and ceremony to take place at the Chicago Blackstone Hotel. The Blackstone is a luxury hotel located on Michigan Avenue near Grant Park which was recently restored in 2008 to its original early 1900’s grandeur featuring a mix of modernism and historic Beaux-Arts architecture.

Quite legendary, the Blackstone has been the choice hotel venue for a numerous notable historical events of Chicago’s finest, and Hollywood’s greatest such as Katherine Hepburn and other famous celebs coming into the City.
