So–my first solo shoot in forever. I was so anxious the night before I didn’t sleep well–I wanted everything to go perfectly. Not only because I always want to take the best photos I can, but Dan is a friend–so it is even more important. I have had the pleasure of knowing Dan since our time at Starbucks together back in Tulsa, when he was in the ballet and I was just a lowly grad student. Since then many things have changed, we have lived many places, and we now both live in Chicago.
Dan has met a wonderful southern boy (enter Evan). Though I have only spent a little time with them–but I can tell they complement each other. They are supportive, caring, sweet, and most of all–truly love each other. For their engagement shoot–I had to take advantage of their adorable apartment in Chicago. It is full of things they have gathered from their lives, and has been put together in a way that makes their space so wonderfully theirs. Between the pictures, books, piano, and of course their cat. I couldn’t pass it up–and I am so glad I didn’t. After that we went to Lincoln Park and Old Town to catch some photos around town. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate with us–and it was beyond overcast and windy. But we persevered, got some photos inside a few local places, and ended our evening with drinks and croissants at an AMAZING french bakery (La Fournette in Old Town, go there–drink, eat, get an almond croissant, and close your eyes and pretend you are in France).
Anyways–here is Dan and Evans engagement shoot. I hope that everyone enjoys them–
