I’ve known Sam since college through several friends at Northern Michigan University and she is now engaged and planning a wedding! She approached me about doing her wedding that’s in February as well as doing a winter engagement shoot in Chicago where her and Eric live! I always feel so honored when people I know hire me! Her and Eric have a passion for traveling, Paris, delicious coffee and enjoying all that Chicago has to offer. Eric in fact, proposed to Sam while they went on a surprise trip for Sam’s birthday in Paris. So basically the best engagement story in the history of stories!
Sam and Eric had a couple must have stops for their engagement shoot and Sam was adorable during it because she quickly wanted to hit every nook of the city. I couldn’t blame her because when you live there you learn all the amazing spots and you just want to take advantage of all of it! We had a lot of fun wandering the city - me especially ;) and finished the session at a coffee shop they love, most delicious pastries in the city!
I’m so excited to head back in February for their beautiful wedding!
It was incredibly bittersweet but a much needed trip to go back to one of our first homes and see all the things that are still there, all the new things that are and walk the same paths that we use to enjoy together.
