The night before their engagement session, Andy + Paige watched the Cubs play from the rooftop of Wrigley field. “The city felt SO alive,” they told us during their session, “Chicago has been experiencing a lot of hardship + violence over the past several months, but the Cubs have really brought everyone together + it’s been beautiful to witness positivity + joy in a place that has recently been feeling extremely divided.” Such a beautiful perspective coming from a woman who, although I haven’t known her for that long, is so obviously filled with deep convictions + an abundance of love.
I am genuinely so excited to share Andy + Paige’s session with you today! They are BOTH such kind individuals — Andy is more calm + relaxed, balanced perfectly by Paige’s more bubbly + outgoing nature. They bounce off each other SO well in their interactions + conversations, they have so many of the same interests, + the only conflicting difference between the two of them is that one is a Green Bay Packers fan + one is a Chicago Bears fan … I won’t say who is who ; )
It all began at a Crossfit gym — the gym that Andy runs, to be exact. They saw each other at the gym often, ended up having a bunch of mutual friends, + started as friends themselves … although, they will now both admit that there was always “something” there between the two of them, it just took time + breaking past nerves on both sides to figure out that the more-than-friends-interest was mutual on both sides!! Now, having the opportunity to witness them interact + love on one another during their session, my GOODNESS were these two made for one another. We even had a moment during the session where happy tears were shed because there was so much love + excitement being shared between the two of them. I am so confident in the future of their relationship + cannot wait to see all of the things these two will do + accomplish together as husband + wife! How beautiful : ) Enjoy some of our favorites from their iconic downtown Chicago session!!
Some favorites!! (And these were some of the FIRST we actually took!!)
Another incredible view! And just you wait! More to come! Since these two live in the city but aren’t getting married in the city, they wanted to shoot in some of the most iconic Chicago spots!!
