So, a couple of weeks ago Kevin and I got to be models for a day. In other words, we had our engagement photos taken. I really do love engagement photos in general. Sure they can be a little cheesy and disgustingly lovey-dovey, but overall I am a huge fan. Naturally, Chicago is a great place for pictures. We've got a stunning skyline, a fantastic downtown area and dozens of unique and wonderful neighborhoods. We chose to have our pictures taken in the Bucktown/Wicker Park area, known for its artsy appeal and a plethora of restaurants and bars. (Our wedding reception will be at Maggiano's downtown, so I figured we would do the downtown shoot then). Were we nervous at first? Yes. Was it awkward posing and having our pictures taken in public? Quite a bit. But we managed to warm up to the process (I think the beer I had may have helped) after a little while and actually had a lot of fun. Not to mention we have an amazing photographer, Laurie of Elle Rose Photo. Here are a few favorites from our session:

 

 

                         

 

 

 

Not too shabby, eh? And so concluded our brief foray into modeling. Until next time . . . our wedding day!
