When Tricia and Chris opted to have their engagement session in downtown Chicago, I thought “Cool! I can get out of Madison for a day and shoot something different.” Although I did shoot several weddings in Chicago this year. But I digress. I was even thinking of a little jaunt over to IKEA. So the big day arrives and I am on day two of the flu AND the weather called for 50mph wind gusts in Chicago. Of course. But, do I reschedule. Of course…NOT. It was part “get it in before the weather really changes” plus “let’s see if I can gut it out and shoot while whiny and mildly delirious”. The answer was “yes” on both counts. From the Kinzie Street bridge to the L to the financial district to the skyline I think we nailed it. Special thanks goes to Krystal who braved the roundtrip car ride and the shoot with Mr. Sickee. Her reward? She got it the same thing a week later. Ah, the sacrifices we must make for our craft.
