Sarah initially reached out to me in a typical fashion through markit’s say hello page. But the note included that her favorite song was by Neko Case so I knew I wanted to meet this girl and fast. We exchanged a few hilariously witty emails and met for coffee to dish about the wedding, photography, and her fianc√©¬†Rob. Shortly after, I received an exciting email from her wanting to book markit photography. Insert happy dance!

Shortly after we planned on a February 1 engagement session at and around their Rogers Park apartment, not realizing the snow Chicago would bring that morning. Uncharacteristically though, the temperature was around 30 and “tolerable” to shoot outside. So we began the shoot inside their adorable apartment, followed by a trek through the snow, around the neighborhood, even braving the beach. By the time we hit the beach, we could no longer feel our fingers. I’m so thrilled with this shoot, as winter session are sometimes difficult with mother nature typically against you. But couldn’t be happier with the results and the joy in working with such a hilariously fun couple.

The two will be wed this November at Architectural Artifacts and I can’t wait to celebrate with them!
