New Friends, Like Old Friends
It’s not everyday that a potential client calls and within moments you feel like old friends, where everything just clicks. Well that’s how it was for Chas (Chastity’s homie nickname) and I. I’ve always wanted to see Chicago and the fact that Chris and Chas live there made their call even more serendipitous!
Although our timeline was tight, we nailed down a date for their engagement shoot, planned in full with champagne, beer, and extra time for lots of laughter.
Fast Forward to Chicago
When Mike and I walked through Chris & Chas’ front door, we were immediately greeted by their enthusiastic pups and the warm welcome of our new friends. The comfortable energy was instantaneous – Chas and I sipped champagne, Chris and Mike cracked open a few brewskis, and then we were off to the Chicago Park District Marine Harbors to enjoy a gorgeous spring day on Lake Michigan. This was also the same spot Chris popped the question during a beautiful snow covered day just a few months earlier in December.
I am over the moon excited to photograph what I know is going to be a stunning celebration this fall at the Hans Faden Winery in Calistoga. Not to mention, a month later I’ll get to capture Chris and Chas’ family celebration in Chas’ hometown (Tennessee).
Chris and Chas, I couldn’t be happier for you two and selfishly I couldn’t be happier that you found me!
Cheers to you, our new friends.
