Val and Rod
I absolutely adore Val, and first met her through our friend Shelly when we were all in high school many moons ago. When she asked me to meet with her to talk about wedding photography, I was super excited! We met at my old neighborhood Starbucks in the West Loop to make arrangements for her August wedding of this year, and scheduled their engagement photos at Montrose Beach for late spring. Things have been so super busy around here that I am just now blogging images from the session now.
Rod is from Australia, and has impeccable taste in music. As a fellow Led Zepplin fan, I think we managed to start things off on a positive note … dang it…. there’s a pun there. Ah well…
The session began at Montrose Beach, not far from Val’s city condo. We made our way to a neat underpass, and then finished the session at Lickity Split, an adorable ice cream shop just across the street from where Val and Rod first met (the place they met is no longer there, but the building is still standing, and can be seen in the reflection on the window in the black and white shot you’ll see one of the photos in this blog). These two are all about fun, laughing, and playful teasing
Stay tuned for their wedding day – it’s about a month away!!
