“We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing!” – Benjamin Franklin // This is a perfect quote for this fun Chicago arcade engagement.
Katy and Andrew are not just clients, but also happen to be good friends. They are getting married this October in Wisconsin at the House on the Rock (which my husband is also officiating) so I knew their engagement session had to be just as epic! When I asked them about where they wanted to do their engagement photo’s they didn’t have a location in mind and I immediately thought a Chicago arcade engagement shoot would be absolutely perfect for them. Lucky for me they were down for it immediately! I contacted a local arcade bar and the manager so kindly said we were free to use their location as long as we needed. We met at Replay arcade bar in Lincoln Park and had a absolute blast. If you have not yet been to one of these epic arcade bars, you must go, now. All games are free as long as you are drinking and it really transports you back to your childhood…but with alcohol…so really how can you go wrong 🙂
When we got there I explained my vision of “less oogy-gooey romantic and more cheesy candid fun”, the look I got when I said this was nothing but relief. I gotta say these two are spot on with my vision in these photo’s. From Mortal Combat, Pacman, Indiana Jones Pinball and Skeetball there was no shortage of photo opportunities as we made our way around Replay for this Chicago arcade engagement. As hard as Andrew and Katy try to not be insanely cute, it’s obvious they are made for one another.
Katy and Andrew, as the iconic neon sign says “never grow up, it’s a trap”! I am SO excited for your amazing wedding this October!!! Cheers – Lisa
