“Meet Gary + Michelle, they are our newest friends whom we LOVED working with for their portraits. Gary + Michelle contacted us after discovering our photo blog and they mentioned how they were especially drawn into our fashion-foward engagement photography style. We will be shooting Gary and Michelle’s Naperville wedding later this year, in the warmer Summer weather. However for their Winter time engagement session, it was brrrr a little cold outside. G+M decided on a suburban shoot with locations nearby their Naperville home.
You might be wondering, why did we take Gary + Michele into a laundry mat for this engagement session? Well after getting to know these two a little better we learned Gary and Michelle’s first meeting was in their college dorm’s laundromat. They were smiling and giggling while telling us about the story… and we eventually discussed how it would make for a great concept within the photos. So in knowing that these college sweethearts had a unique story and had plans for an indoor shooting location to warm up a bit for their session, we chose a stop inside a nearby laundry mat. It was fun re-inacting their first meeting, Michelle was studying for her Geology class when Gary first approached her. With some persistence, Michelle decided to let Gary take her out on a date, and the rest is history. We loved hearing their fun and unique story!
Gary and Michelle thank you in spending the day with us, we had a blast working together and enjoyed talking more over our Tapas dinner in Naperville after the shoot. Looking forward to seeing you again at the wedding + celebrating with your Naperville and Wheaton family and friends. Enjoy the photos.”
