Last weekend, I traveled to Chicago to photograph Kate and Juan's engagements! Kate was a bride who originally found me 'the old fashioned way'- simple word of mouth! In today's world, social media is the modern day 'word of mouth'; however, it always makes me happy to know that people are having conversations...maybe I'm old fashioned! Anyways, to make a long story short, prior to their engagement session, I had only met the couple via Skype. Many of my clients live all over the country and I do love the fact that we can connect face-to-face, no matter how far the distance is! I knew I really liked Kate and Juan from our online conversations, but it was SO great to get to know them more during our time together in Chicago! The couple met by happen chance. A few years ago, Juan was taking the elevator up to his apartment and saw Kate. He knew that he had to pursue this girl and his persistence paid off! It turned out that they lived in the same apartment building and before you knew it, they were in love! Kate and Juan are a great couple that clearly make each other incredibly happy!
Congratulations to Kate and Juan on their engagement! So looking forward to your wedding next year!
