“After a few earlier in the week wedding photo posts… we are excited to feature next a Summer Chicago engagement session with Eric + the beautiful Tiffany. From the moment we imported the images from the camera to our computer, we could hardly wait to feature this engagement shoot. ( And narrowing it down to these favorites pictures to feature was a difficult task : ) We have many favorites, loved the locations + loved working with Tiffany and Eric.
After booking us earlier this Spring, we had only talked to Tiffany a few times, long distance over the phone. So it wasn’t until the shoot, that we actually met in person these two. It’s was great finally meeting the two of you! T+E are currently living and working in Southern California in the Santa Clarita area. Originally calling Chicago home, Tiffany + Eric moved to LA a few years ago… they currently work for the same company, a worldwide developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices. Tiffany works in the company’s PR and event planning department, while Eric works in sales. Their positions sometimes cross paths, so it was interesting comparing how Ryan and I work together, and their occasional working together relationship too.
For the engagement shoot, we mixed in a variety of environments capturing some unique and Chicago high-fashion engagement pictures, and then in-contrast some romantic softer portraits. We loved E+T’s fashion sense and style. Tiffany requested a few location and photo stops which both her and Eric would each like… it’s always interesting hearing the different styles the guys and girls have. Once she mentioned we loved boats, we had a great, secret location in mind that we had came across earlier in the week… With them being from LA and the uncommon occurrence of palm trees in Chicago… this turned out to be a fitting location for these two.
Eric + Tiffany, we had a great time on your shoot and thanks for grabbing a late night bite to eat with us afterwards!! Enjoyed the good conversation and hearing about your wedding plans, jobs, travels, the lifestyle and activities in the LA area, and boating and wake boarding up North at Eric’s family’s Wisconsin cabin. After hearing about the area you live at in California and the lifestyle, Ryan and I are dedicated to finding time for a trip out your way! Hopefully we can stop by and grab drinks again. Hope your family and friends enjoy the engagement pics… talk to you soon.”
Eric + Tiffany are planning on using a few photos for their save the date announcement. They are in the midst of wedding planning for their June 2011 wedding. Talk about selecting a popular June wedding date… we have received 5 inquiries in the past month alone for their wedding day. : ) Both the ceremony and reception are going to take place at Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and convention center in Schaumburg. A unique hotel, the Renaissance has a modern decor style and a ton of touches of bright colors. A contemporary hotel design … we love modern places, so with it’s unique architectural style it’s definitely one of our favorite reception venues in Schaumburg. Looking forward to E+T’s wedding!
