I don’t even know where to start with these two!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there’s a really good chance that I’m going to become 100% emotionally invested in the couples I photograph lol! I had such an amazing time hanging out with Janet & Michael and capturing their love that I didn’t want the shoot to end!
To start off their engagement session they wanted to explore a local pen shop called Wonder Pens, which turned out to be the cutest little hidden treasure! There were tons of unique trinkets, handmade greeting cards, a giant chalkboard wall, and lush greenery in every corner!
From there, we headed to Yorkville and explored all the unique buildings & streets nearby. Right as we started shooting the clouds opened up and rain started pouring down on us. Thankfully, Janet & Michael were just so happy to be together and they were totally down for an adventure. So we ran around in the rain and ended up with such cute & romantic rainy day photos! Is it just me, or are rainy days in the city 10x more romantic anyways?!
To finish off the session we ended up at Pray Tell Bar where we were welcomed in from the rain (and even given some complimentary champagne)! The owners are seriously the kindest people ever, and we were amazed and how warmly they treated us! We shot a few more photos in the dark + moody bar, and I was over the moon with the images we were able to create together. I am seriously SO excited to capture their wedding later this summer!
