One of the greatest pleasures of being a photographer is that you are personally involved in a couple’s life simply because you are allowed to document their special events, happiness and love and then share it with the world. That experience is even sweeter when it’s one of your best friends. Lindsay was not only my best friend in college but she was my roommate. Nothing bonds you together like the ups and downs of your 20’s, going through school, trying to figure out who you are and what you want to be. She was there at the very start of my career in photography and I finally got to “thank” her for all her support by photographing her and engagement photos with her awesome fiance, Jeff.
We spent a nice, humid day in the great city of Chicago. We spent some time in their cute apartment, sipping win on the roof top. And then we ventured off to a near by park. The couple loves playing Scrabble so we used those infamous little tiles to spice up the photo shoot. After the shoot we enjoyed some Chicago-style deep dish pizza and then grabbed a cab during a thunderstorm. All in all it was a perfect Midwest evening and time well spent with dear friends Lindsay and Jeff.
Schuyler- I am so happy for you. (…As I tear up writing this…) I am so happy you found an amazing man to spend the rest of your life with. You have grown into such an amazing woman with an awesome career and life in front of you. I can’t WAIT for the wedding- it will be a night to remember. Congratulations! I wish you two nothing but pure happiness and joy. Enjoy the photos.
