At first, Chris wasn’t a fan of the idea of getting a photo taken for his Chicago engagement photography session, but he was on board when he found out he could bring his bike. Bikes+Grunge? We love. It’s the perfect ying and yang with Tammy’s cheery yellow outfit, and adorable doggy. Plus, Tammy is a veterinarian (Charlie’s Vet actually!) so they had to bring their dog. 🙂
Tammy and Chris wanted to have their engagement session in Chicago, since it’ll be a nice offset with their Lake Michigan wedding near Tammy’s parent’s Blueberry Farm.
Tammy- you’re adorable.

Meet Cassie and Justin- Blackwelder. As you may remember, Cassie had all of the details of her Kure Beach wedding ready and prepped out on her blog post. Justin and Cassie had their festivites at the Fort Fisher Aquarium, near Kure Beach and just south of Wilmington. The fantastic aquarium, and surrounding towns are a bit of a tradition for these two lovely folks, heading down for a yearly vacation with their closest friends.
So the details from Cassie’s blog? Check it out! I think my favorites were the seastars on top of their cake, or the shoes- but hey, who doesn’t love a good shoe. 😉
Grandma’s ring? Perfect fit!
Cassie- you are absolutely beautiful!
Excellent superhero pins as boutineers. 🙂
The happiest baby Hammerhead Shark ever? Indeed.
Adorable cupcake toppers made by Cassie herself!
Cassie and Justin, we feel so lucky to have met you guys. Congrats! You two make a fantastic pair! If Justin ever has another contract near Chicago, come and visit! 🙂
Okay, so perhaps like mother like son in this shot. When I pulled it up, I was amazed by the similarities, facial expressions, the joyful crowd in the background, the same feeling showing through Janeen and Akili’s eyes as were on Akili’s parent’s decades ago. Couldn’t resist but to share.
Jenn and Ron amaze me. Seriously- my jaw dropped when they told me that they were in a long distance relationship for over a YEAR. When Jenn suggested that we could take their engagement photos at Midway airport, I thought- of course! One could only imagine the series of emotions that went through the two of them with every departure and arrival set for Philadelphia between them. Every month, Jenn and Ron made sure to book a flight visiting one another, with most all flights going through midway- and! See the luggage they’re sporting? Indeed- it’s long distance certified. 😉
I loved all of the mini planes on a string!
And the luggage tag? Perfect touch! Goes quite well with the backside of the tag, along with the & symbol- which will go quite well with their Chicago Bulls wedding colors of Red, Black, and White.
Jenn and Ron- Thank you so much for spending the morning with us! Cannot wait to see the details at your wedding in 3 1/2 months!
Have to say, I’m pretty excited over the busy month ahead. (Which goes quite well with our JET Near Beer piggy bank) Here’s what we have coming up 🙂
