urban chicago engagement :: sandra + chris

She had a very specific vision in mind. She knew what she wanted, and she was going to get it. When I first talked to Sandy about engagement photos, I felt well…a little nervous. You see, Sandy is a family friend of many, many years…and I wanted to make the most. amazing. photos. ever. for her. I wanted her to be as happy with her photos as she is with Chris.

Sandy met Chris by chance. She was at dinner with her dad on a random Sunday night when Chris and his guy friends walked into the restaurant for drinks. Sandy found out that both her and Chris had a mutual friend in common, so the whole crew headed out for drinks at another location that same evening. The two clicked right away….and two nights later they went on their first date. It might not have been love at first site, but rather love at their first date.

I know these two will look at each other the same way in 60 years as they did during our engagement session. Congrats to you both….I loved shooting these photos for you guys!
