Some things are meant to be, some things just happen, and more often than not, things that are meant to be just happen. These two are no exception. James is from Ireland; Tavia is from Chicago. A work opportunity brought James to Chicago, and he decided to stay after meeting Tavia.
These two are the kind of fun, easygoing people that everyone wants to hang out with, so it's no surprise that they want to hang out with one another for life. Tav said YES when James proposed on a ski trip at Breckenridge over the New Year holiday.
When we scheduled their engagement photography session in Chicago this spring, James and Tav shared that they are planning a destination wedding for May next year-- in Ireland! Because of this, celebrating Chicago in their engagement photographs became a priority.
We started with craft cocktails at the terrace at Drumbar on the roof of the Rafaello Hotel in the magnificent mile. From there, we walked down Michigan Avenue to Water Tower Place and took a stroll down the Chicago Riverwalk, a favorite for wedding and engagement photographs in the spring! Congratulations, you two!
