sara+charlie chicago engagement session

storyboard020Sara and Charlie are getting married this summer in East Lansing, but they’re currently living in Chicago. We tossed around the idea of coming to Chicago, hanging out for a day, and taking lots of photos, and they were down! So, while it’s normally referred to as the “Windy City”, this winter locals have been  referring to it lovingly as “Chiberia”. We were a little hesitant to spend a bunch time outside, in January, in the cold. But the weekend we visited the weather ended up pretty nice, although a big blizzard was forecasted for later in the day we’d planned to shoot. We stuck to the plan, and it worked out perfectly. Sarah and Charlie showed us around to some of their favorite little gems in the city. We ended up getting a ton of great photos, then stopped and warmed up with some coffee, and continued all over the city. Later in the day the skies opened up and started dropping some big fluffy snowflakes. It ended up making for some magical wintery goodness! We’re super excited for their wedding this August, and hopefully it’s a little warmer than it was last time we saw them! storyboard021storyboard022storyboard023storyboard024storyboard047storyboard025storyboard026storyboard045storyboard046storyboard003storyboard004storyboard005storyboard006storyboard007storyboard008storyboard001storyboard009storyboard010storyboard011storyboard013storyboard012storyboard014storyboard015storyboard016storyboard017storyboard018storyboard019storyboard028storyboard032storyboard033storyboard034storyboard035storyboard036storyboard037storyboard038storyboard039storyboard040storyboard041storyboard042storyboard043storyboard044
