“For last week’s two Chicago engagement photography sessions, we had some unexpected 70 degree, seriously awesome April weather! However, it was not only warm, but also two extremely gusty “windy city” Chicago days.
Brittany + Bobby are a fun loving, easy going couple who are very much in love. Ryan and I had a great time venturing around the City and seeing them interact with each other in the photos. We enjoyed visiting a few new photo locations just outside of the Chicago Loop for their shoot. During every engagement session, we seem to have a memorable moment … we will never forget stumbling across another couple near the Lake Michigan shoreline during their shoot. ; ) LOL
When discussing their shoot, I proposed the idea of incorporating some balloons into a few pictures. Brittany fell in love with the idea, so she gladly ordered and brought some balloons along – we had sooooo many balloons that we were a little nervous they all wouldn’t fit into our XTerra. The wind was definitely a little tricky to work with, but determined, we captured some romantic shots with the balloons in a quiet, secluded section of Chicago’s Museum Park. In addition, we mixed in some other soft photo styles then incorporated historic architecture, Lake Michigan and finally closed the day with everyone’s favorites, some after dark glowing Chicago evening skyline photos. Brittany looked stunning in her black dress and hot, yellow heels.
After the session, we grabbed a bite to eat and got to know each other a little more discovering Brittany and Bobby have been dating for over ten years – almost longer than Ryan and my relationship. With their upcoming destination wedding at Lake Lawn Resort on Lake Delavan in Wisconsin approaching, they were excited to talk about their wedding plans. We LOVE shooting destination weddings, whether they are only a state away or a destination wedding around the world. Brittany and Bobby… Ryan and I are thrilled to be heading up with you for your lakeside wedding. We can’t wait to meet your family and friends, 22 member bridal party, and enjoy your wedding weekend this Summer. Enjoy the photos and hope we created some lasting memories for the two of you… ”
