Cassie was a senior at The University of Wisconsin Madison, where she was hired at a new bar (Quinton’s Bar & Deli) by this tall dark and handsome manager, Nick. They dated and moved to Chicago together to start their careers. They brought into their home their first furry child, Remi. On her way home Cassie received a cute text from Nick saying he and Remi had a surprise for her when she got home. She arrived to Remi running up to her in a sparkly new collar which read “Cassandra, will you marry me?” and as she turned towards Nick he was already down on one knee holding this gorgeous custom emerald ring. She screamed “Of course!”
I met this photogenic couple at a Bridal Show, where I found out Nick grew up in my hometown LaGrange, and Cassie is an art therapist for people with special needs. Needless to say, this was a client-photographer match made in heaven. We chatted about engagement photos and they really wanted to show off the beauty that is Chicago. Nick and Cassie live in an amazing condo building with the most scenic rooftop! So we had to start with their boston terrier Remi on the rooftop to begin the engagement session! They have such a cute loft I wanted to capture a few intimate cozy photos on their couch before heading off to Lincoln Park for the rest of the session. Remi had to stay behind but I think he was all tired out from photos already anyways! We got some stunning images around the honeycomb and north pond, and some of my favorite night time images EVER! You need to check these beauties out!! I can’t wait for their wedding at Gallery 1028, it’s going to be amazingggggg!!
