“You are the love that came without warning. You had my heart before I could say no” – Unknown // I love this quote for this romantic Chicago Bucktown Engagement Session with Sophia and Jeff 🙂
Sophia contacted me a few months ago hoping that I was available on a Friday night in July for her and her fiancé, Jeff’s, Bucktown engagement shoot. Sophia and Jeff met in Chicago but have since relocated to Seattle and while in town to visit family they wanted their engagement photo’s to be taken in some of their old haunting grounds in Chicago. I was free and we started planning their engagement shoot. Sophia explained that they used to frequent the Bucktown and Wicker Park neighborhoods a lot for dinner and drinks and really wanted to use the love mural on Damen as well as a bar. On the way to the shoot I passed by a bar that had the Chicago flag on the outside and I thought “this is perfect.” The couple absolutely loved the idea and the homage to their Chicago :). When Sophia and Jeff lived in Chicago they lived in the Lincoln park area and wanted to capture the skyline and their old hood – so after the Bucktown engagement shots we headed to Lincoln Park to capture the skyline and some golden light! We took advantage of the skyline and the “honeycomb” sculpture and were about to leave when I noticed this bright field of yellow daisies and I said “let’s do a couple more shots that mom will love” – these shots ended up being some of the couples faves!
I was so honored to capture the city where Sophia and Jeff started falling in love with some beautiful Bucktown engagement photo’s! I wish this fun-loving couple all the best in Seattle as they start their forever together! xo- Lisa
