When Stacy + Alex requested to have their engagement session in their hometown of Chicago, I was all about it! Getting the chance to set aside Milwaukee for a while and explore another city is a blast! As my morning train rolled in to the station, I was greeted with overcast skies, a bit of rain and a cold wind, but Stacy and Alex were prepared to make the most of it with umbrellas, high spirits, and a plan. Our first stop was to take some shots on a few of the many bridges spanning the river in the heart of the Windy city. Before long, the rain stopped and we made our way over to Millennium Park where the bright Autumn trees looked fantastic against the steel and wood plank walking bridge. We had some fun with reflections at the fountains and in front of the silver bean structure "Cloud Gate". The Chicago Theatre made a great last stop for the session. Stacy and Alex are absolutely one of the kindest and happiest couples I have ever met and I feel privileged to get to photograph their upcoming wedding back in Wisconsin! Congratulations you two, see you in May!
