Anu & Chris’ wedding was small in attendance, but huge in heart. With just four guests in-person, they said their vows at one of the most serene spots in the heart of Chicago: the edge of Lincoln Park’s Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool. They were joined by more than 60 friends and family members from all over the U.S., Switzerland, and India via Zoom.
Navy Pier is a Chicago classic, and for Jackie & Jeff, it’s a classic for their relationship as well. It’s the site of their first date, and the spot where they got engaged, so it was only natural that it should also be the site of their engagement photos. We had a lovely spring morning to catch all sorts of angles at this iconic Chicago experience, and I’m so happy with the images we got.
I’m all about getting super glam for an engagement session. It’s a huge deal to get engaged, and there’s no better time to embrace the most formal aspects of your wardrobe for a session. Lucky for me, Sara & Vivek were totally game for formal wear for their Chicago engagement photos. Sara is from India, and Vivek grew up in an Indian family in Dubai. They met in the U.S. as adults, and got engaged in Chicago, a city that they called home for several years. It was such fun to do this engagement session with them in this city that is so significant to them as a couple.
Katherine and Elliot met on the shores of the same water over which they said their marriage vows. Elliot signed up for sailing lessons, not knowing that his instructor would one day be his wife— and co-owner of their sail boat. Since Lake Michigan and nautical life are a centerpoint to their lives, Columbia Yacht Club was a natural choice for their venue.
