Sarah + Ryan Miller:
“Fall is definitely a popular time to schedule an engagement session with Miller + Miller! However the unpredictable weather and scheduling an outdoor shoot can naturally provide for some unpredicted variables. For Mike + Aimee’s Chicago engagement photos, the wind was blowing and some super moody clouds rolled in. Thankfully, the rain cooperated holding off until after our final City shots were completed. ( And actually, we loved the clouds and created some real artistry with them! )
We had a great time creating both elegant and creative photos for Mike and Aimee. We loved our first Downtown shooting spot that Aimee suggested! The park where Mike’s proposal took place incorporated both nature and beautiful, classic detail elements. Next we crossed Lake Shore Drive to the Chicago Harbor – we love boating Lake Michigan and suggested this location to M+A. The dock photos were great, but wow we were very grateful that a local Chicago sailer and his wife invited us aboard their massive, 50 foot sailboat to shoot some amazing, front bow photographs! Our boat is only 20′ and fun on Lake Michigan, but shooting onboard their sail boat was truly photographic gift. Many thanks to everyone we met on Sunday and of course to Aimee and Mike for a great day. A special thank you to Aimee, who despite her recent foot surgery and difficulty putting tons of weight on her right foot, she was determined to shoot some unforgettable photographs.
Mike + Aimee are completing final details for their Spring April 2010 wedding taking place at the historic and beautiful The Patrick C. Haley Mansion in Joliet, IL. We look forward to your wedding. M+A were a referral from Joshua + Stacy. We love appreciate referrals and enjoy the opportunity everyday in meeting new couples and capturing some of their happiest moments of their lives from their engagements and weddings, to baby and family portraits as their families grow.”
