JACKIE & DREWDowntown Chicago City Engagement Session

Jackie and Drew are getting hitched! To celebrate, we put together an itinerary for a fun downtown Chicago city engagement session, starting with views of this amazing skyline (seriously, it never gets old!), passing by some favorite spots on the bridges and along the river, and ending up in a cozy little corner downtown.

 

And you know, we thought we were in the clear with the forecast (mild, even though it was early March!), but then out of nowhere, it started to drizzle. (Dang you, forecasters!) Jackie and Drew were the biggest troupers for the last 30 minutes of this session — and I have to say some of these final shots, with the mist and sparkling streetlights, are my absolute FAVORITES.

 

I can’t wait for September!!

 

(Also, shout outs to Rent the Runway for Jackie’s perfect LBD, and Trixie Girl Blow Dry Bar for her amazing hair and makeup!)
