Spring Break + Snow + An Engaged Couple So in Love = one of the best times I've ever had on a shoot

After exchanging quite a few emails, we finally got to meet Matt and Aubrey in person when we drove up to Chicago over spring break for their engagement shoot. My trusty assistant and I easily fell into conversation with them while we headed into Chicago rush hour traffic. For weeks we had been planning their engagement shoot in downtown Chicago... I even scoped out places online that I wanted to hit. And of course, it started raining right when we got downtown. Well, it was kinda more like snow from time to time, but it was precipitating none the less. We weren't able to reschedule because our trip was already jammed packed, so we made the best of it, and I'm so glad we did!

We started off by the infamous bean in millennial park.

Good thing we had an umbrella!

We hoped it would let up, but alas, it precipitated in one form or another the whole time. But precipitation was not about to get in our way :). We found lots of of covered locations, like this alley, to guard us from whatever was coming down from the sky at the moment.

Instead of walking in the rain, we took the bus :)

When we got to Navy Pier, it pretty much stopped raining for a bit... right as the sun sank down, which gave us this really cool moody photo.

These two are so stinkin in love they can't hide it!

We then took the bus back to Union Station for some last shots.

After the shoot, we decided to grab some dinner with Matt and Aubrey and chat some more. I just love these guys! They told us all about how they met and starting dating. Aubrey was playing Mary in her church's Christmas show and they needed a last minute Joseph ... Matt jumped in. A little foreshadowing, eh :). Matt and Aubrey, if we lived in Chicago, Jon and I would want to hang out with you guys all the time:) Can't wait for your wedding!!!
