Christy and Jesse | Chicago engagement photos

I’ve known Christy ever since we played basketball against each other in high school. She didn’t know me because I stunk, but I knew her since she was one of their star players. Then, one of my best friends in college joins a sorority, and who is her sorority sister? Christy! So, we got to know each other during our college years, and have seen each other at weddings and parties since then.

She and Jesse got engaged this fall and are planning a May wedding at the Palmer House in Chicago. It sounds pretty amazing. I gotta admit, I’m pretty excited to shoot it 🙂

The three of us wandered around Chicago – Millenium park, the rink, Wacker bridge, fighting off the freezing cold and then hopped over to Lincoln Park Zoo to take photos with the lights. So beautiful!
