lexi + aric // chicago illinois engagement photographer

What a day! The rain poured as we made our way to Chicago but Lexi said the rain usually passes the city and I'm SO glad I listened to her! We met at Lincoln Park Zoo *literally* as the rain stopped. Lexi and Aric worked the city look (with a few sprinkles here and there) as they showed Cory and I around some of their favorite hot spots. We had an absolute blast with these two! Lexi and Aric are the type of couple that make you feel like you've known them for years -- huge hearts, big smiles, and infectious personalities.  They say "I do" later this year at an incredible venue in the middle of Ohio and I'm so glad they brought us to Chicago to photograph a little piece of their home!

The last images were taken right after sunset as the city of Chicago lined Michigan Ave for a Christmas parade. You would never guess that millions of people were right next to us during these last shots. It's a part of why I love those images so much. It's like time stood still.
