One small lesson I’ve learned as I celebrate one year since I moved back to the Windy City is that, well, Chicago really is WINDY!
I arrived a few minutes before Emily and Gary for their engagement session, which I had envisioned as a fun, fall afternoon photographing them as they took a romantic stroll along the waterfront with the majestic skyline in the background.
HA! In reality, when I got there I nearly got knocked over by the winds!
So I texted them to ask if they wanted to divert to something a little more sheltered, but instead they decided to go for it, wind and all. I have to say that we had the BEST time….to recover from the first half of our session, we stopped into a coffee shop (just down the street from where they first met) for a break, and then we finished the session with a walk near the Art Institute.
So here they are — Emily and Gary! Congratulations, guys, and I can’t wait for the wedding!
