Already in Chicago for a beautiful wedding, Ben, Kelsey, and I decided to meet up for an epic engagement shoot! And boy, did we see everything! Shot at their (beautiful!) home, downtown, in the park, under the “L” train, by “The Bean”, by the river, along the lake, and way out by the Adler Planetarium for an amazing view of the entire skyline. I have been dying to get that one shot of a beautiful couple and a massive city skyline, after dark of course, for ages. This shoot was everything and more. So photogenic, so genuine, such a great pair.
Ben and I graduated from Ankeny High School together. We were both in show choir (he was actually my “mirror” for a lot of the staging, since we’re just about the same size and height) and all the drama productions together (and may I mention he is an AMAZING tenor!). And Kelsey and I met at Iowa State in in and around the theatre scene (surprise – thespians unite!). Ben and Kelsey are a great pair and I am psyched for their wedding day at the Barnes’ Place in Adel, Iowa.
Oh, don’t you love the selfies in the bean?! Couldn’t resist!
