For Neha and Keyur's engagement session, we travelled to the magnificent Baha'i Temple in Wilmette, IL. The beautiful flower garden even has the right colours to complement their outfits! After that we headed to the city of Evanston and then ended the night at the Shedd Aquarium.
We all know how hard a long distance relationship can be, but Preeti and Jassi managed to survive it for seven years! Having spent some time in Chicago, they wanted to have their engagement session right here. After much planning and scouting locations to match what they had in mind, we were ready! We found a field that looked like a farm in Punjab, complete with a water well pump! Being basketball fans (even equipped with jerseys with their names on it), we had to do part of the shoot at the Chicago Bulls' home arena, the United Center, with Michael Jordan!
Divya & Ajin flew down from California to Chicago for their engagement session, since they had many memorable moments in the city. It was the place they first met, bumping into each other while walking around the University of Illinois - Chicago (UIC) campus looking for a place to eat on their first day.
We started the session off at the bench where they first met! After walking around the UIC campus, we headed out to Millenium Park and the surrounding area to finish the session. Check out the save the date image!
For Dipali and Shashin's engagement session we went to Rock Bottom Brewery (yes inside the brewery), the beach near Chicago's museum campus and the Adler Planetarium for some great Chicago skyline sunset shots!
