CHICAGO ENGAGEMENT : KINZIE STREET BRIDGE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS // robin + dewayne

It all began with something as simple as a wink. Robin was single and looking to meet someone special, so she joined Match.com. When she came across Dewayne’s profile, she stopped. He seemed like a cool guy, so she sent him a wink, and then carried on with her day. Dewayne soon messaged her, “hey, what’s up”. During the weeks following Robin’s initial wink, the two were messaging each other and soon were texting each other non-stop. It seemed that something special was evolving.

When it was time for Robin and Dewayne to finally meet in person, they grabbed a drink at a local, Irish bar in Chicago. They had been chatting long enough that while it was technically their first date, they felt like they already knew each other. Robin strolled in rocking yoga pants completely relaxed and ready to hang out with Dewayne, and Dewayne was smitten with how laid-back, sporty and chill Robin was. They chatted about life, sports and their families, and they ended their date knowing that they would be seeing each other again soon. The more time they spent together, the more they realized they had found someone special. So weeks later, Robin and Dewayne took down their Match.com profiles and made their relationship exclusive.

I met Robin and Dewayne at the Kinzie Street Bridge for their engagement photos. Robin was a bridesmaid in Eileen and Mike’s wedding, so I was delighted to see her again and to spend some time getting to know Dewayne.

The Chicago weather was …. dare I say perfect …. for an engagement session. It was warm but not hot. Sunny but not too bright. I was thrilled.

Robin and Dewayne were complete naturals in front of the camera. I just love how these two can go from fun to sweet to serious in a matter of minutes.

We practically had the whole area around Kinzie Street Bridge to ourselves for their engagement session including one of my favorite spots ….

I’ll leave you with one of my favorites because there is nothing that makes me smile more than a passionate kiss on a Chicago bridge.
