“We had a awesome time roaming around Chicago shooting engagement pics with this next couple… meet our next featured engaged couple Scott + Andrea. Currently living in Jackson Tennesee, we wish they lived closer, as we really enjoyed just simply hanging out with these guys. And of course, getting creative shooting their pictures was fun too. Being Chicago engagement and wedding photographers and receiving the opportunity to meet + become friends with fun couples like these guys is such an awesome perk of the job.
Andi is another bride-to-be that adapted quickly to our high-fashion engagement photos style and wow she looked amazingly beautiful. During the shoot, it was not hard to quickly notice some great chemistry between these two. Scott + Andi enjoy the City of Chicago, and although live currently in Tennessee, they have acquired many framed art pieces for the walls of their Tennessee home which feature a number of Chicago scenes ( many of the raised Chicago L tracks ). So for the shoot, being they came into town arriving in Chicago area for only a couple of days, they were really looking forward to our stops at a few off beat Chicago shooting locations ( and especially the under the L location ).
Thanks Scott + Andi in grabbing a bite to eat in the South Loop after the shoot and treating us to dinner. We had fun exchanging stories and learning about your interesting executive jobs ( they both work in Human Resources at GE ), hearing more about the wedding which will be taking place down in Decatur Illinois with the reception venue being on the same lake where Andi’s family has a lake home, at Lake Decatur, hearing about the lake, and of course summer time boating. Hello down there to you in Tennessee and your families in Oklahoma + Decatur. We hope you enjoy the engagement pics! Look forward to the wedding and seeing you guys again in a few months.”
Scott + Andi have set a Spring May wedding date. The ceremony will take place at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Decatur and the reception will follow at The Beach House. The Beach House is located lakeside on Lake Decatur in central Illinois. We are looking forward to traveling down state, meeting their families, and shooting around Decatur and at their unique lakefront reception venue. Scott is Cherokee Indian and the couple are planning on incorporating Native American traditions into their wedding. For this Chicago engagement session, Scott surprised Andi with beautiful turquoise jewelry he brought back from a visit to the Southwest in Santa Fe, New Mexico. For the wedding day, she will be wearing a turquoise ring + necklace ( both also purchased in Santa Fe, NM. )
