Engagement photos


After looking through many many photographer portfolios online, and meeting several photography companies in person, Sarah and I decided to use Gina & Tony photography for many reasons: 1) We heard about Gina & Tony from Sarah's sister, as they did the maternity photos of Michele and baby photos of Luke. 2) We found their work to be the best we've seen online. Check out their work at 3) They are local right next door in Forest Park. 4) They are totally fun. 

Below is a selection of the photos from our engagement shoot on October 19, 2014. (All photos ©2014

We visited the Chicago Cultural Center on our third date; and closed out the galleries as the security guards had to kick us out. Tony and Gina came up with some great compositions in this beautiful Chicago landmark.

The Randolph/Wabash station is the Loop train station that I take to go home every night. It also happens to be the same train station I use to go to Sarah's! We love taking CTA whenever possible to frequent some of our favorite spots in The Loop. So, this stop, which merges our two lines-- the Green and Brown-- together makes for some fun urban photos.

Chicago Riverwalk

Sarah and I greatly enjoy the Chicago Riverwalk, so it only made sense for us to take a stroll down this way. We didn't plan it, but the colors of our outfits nicely matched the sandstone colors of the Riverwalk's landscape architecture. Tony & Gina did a great job pulling those colors out in their photos. Plus, the walls made for a great surface for us to start folding some of our origami butterflies.

We crossed the river to the Wrigley Building where we placed a couple more origami butterflies. Notice that the third photo is the one that inspired our Save the Date card!

Just outside Tribune Tower, my workplace of 14+ years, is Pioneer Court. I often like to take lunches out on this plaza. Tony & Gina did some really great framing using the surrounding gardens.
