Some days my job is just plain fun. Lucky for me, Andrea and Deep exploded with chemistry in front of the camera. Their cuteness meter was pretty much pegged.
We started the shoot on bikes in Lincoln Park’s beautiful Burling Street. It was a great spot to get the last of the fall colors that cling to the trees. The first half hour of the shoot was wonderfully protected from the nasty wind and chill we would later discover was we took the shoot into Lincoln Park and North Avenue Beach. But I really have to tip my hat (stocking cap) to Andrea and Deep. They had a great attitude and really withstood some less-than-ideal conditions.
Fortunately the sun did come through to provide some gorgeous backlight in Lincoln Park.
The session on North Avenue Beach probably lasted all of 10 minutes including the lighting set up. It was a mad-dash to get the shots made. Fortunately, we were laughing and yelling the whole time, all the way back to the warm car waiting for us at the end of a fun but cold shoot. That’s Chicago.
Congrutulations Andrea and Deep! My numb fingers are looking forward to your summer wedding at the JW Marriot!
