Happy to share the latest slideshow from an Engagement Session with Lauren and Adam, a couple I met through the alumni association of one of my major departments at Carroll University in Waukesha, WI. The two of them met while attending there and even shared their engagement on the steps of Voorhees Hall. I’m so happy to be able to share in this year of their lives as they plan for their wedding, and make a deeper connection with fellow alumni.
Though the wedding will be in southeast Wisconsin, we did their engagement shoot in some more abstract locations in Chicago. It turned out beautifully, even with a small location snag. I had a loading dock area all eyed-up for a nice gritty industrial contrast, only to find the area occupied by a pile of pillows and blankets when we arrived that hadn’t been there when I scouted it earlier in the week. Luckily there were a couple other backdrops in walking distance I had also scouted, so we quickly changed course. I guess that is one of the possible hiccups when shooting in the city. It didn’t even phase my good natured bride-and groom-to-be, and I feel like some of my favorites from the day came from that graffiti wall we shot near just after changing course. With a couple that happy to be together and that nimble in circumstance, they will be well prepared to face the chaos of a wedding day… and life.
Lauren and Adam, thanks for a great shoot! Hope you enjoy the photos.
