Sarah first contacted me about wedding photography a few months ago. Like many others, she was working on rescheduling her wedding due to COVID. After a long engagement, and a couple changes of plans, she and Mike will finally be tying the knot in Michigan this October! When she mentioned they actually live in Chicago, I jumped on the opportunity for a downtown Chicago engagement session.
I don’t know what it is about Chicago, but the very first time I ever went there, I was hooked. There’s just a certain energy there that I love. The beautiful architecture everywhere and gorgeous view of Lake Michigan don’t hurt either. I’ll take any excuse to visit the windy city. Sarah works right downtown so we met up at her office building and spent a couple hours wandering around and getting to know each other.
Mike and Sarah are proof that you just never know when, how, or WHERE you will find the love of your life. Mike is actually from New Jersey, but met Sarah when she was there for a job. It didn’t take long to fall for each other, and even though they had to maintain a long distance relationship for a while, the rest is history. Mike proposed while they were on vacation in Hawaii – just wait until you see her stunning ring! – and that very same trip, they closed on their house in Chicago. What a week that must have been!
I am so excited to celebrate this love story at Haymarket Brewery in October. Until then, enjoy my favorite photos from their Chicago engagement session!
