When Sam & Dan first reached out a few months ago during their search for a photographer for their Chicago wedding, I was struck by their intentionality in love and warmth in partnership with one another. These two athletes competed at University of Illinois and Ohio State and have since run marathons the world over. To say they’re a powerhouse couple would be an understatement: their first trip “away” together was Hong Kong. Not Door County or Nashville or Sonoma or even Mexico…. Hong. Kong. And they both loved it. Sam and Dan found in each other someone who could keep up; someone their speed- and it’s a blast to photograph them together.
For their engagement photos, we ran around Chicago, visiting the South Garden at the Art Institute of Chicago; Michigan Avenue, the Wrigley Building and Chicago Riverwalk and ended with the last sparks of a September sunset at Olive Park overlooking the skyline near Ohio Street Beach and Navy Pier. Here’s to June 1, 2019!
