A Springtime Engagement Session in Wrigleyville: Nicole and Steve

After years of traveling for work, Steve moved and started a life in downtown Chicago and a couple years later, his future wife whom he had not yet met, put down roots in the same city.
Both big country music fans, it only seems fitting that they met for the very first time at Old Crow, a country bar in Steve’s favorite neighborhood– Wrigleyville.  Nicole was celebrating St.Patrick’s day with friends at Old Crow and Steve was there for a friend’s birthday. At some point, Steve who had noticed Nicole several times through out the night approached Nicole, and the two groups merged.  They talked and laughed for a couple hours and  seemed to have an immediate connection as both groups left without even saying goodbye or letting them know.  Eventually later that night, the two said goodbye, but not before exchanging numbers. The very next morning, Nicole woke up to a text from Steve.
Nicole was skeptical to accept a first date from a guy she randomly met at a bar.  They spent about three weeks texting back and forth before Steve suggested they meet for an official first real date. Still unsure and even considered backing out of the date, Nicole’s roommate encouraged her to go on one date “since he might be the one.”  Well he was the one, and I couldn’t be more honored to be photographing their upcoming wedding this summer.  For their Engagement Session, it only seemed fitting to go back where it all began– Old Crow and the streets of Wrigleyville!   I hope you enjoy some of my favorites…
I just adore these two…
Besides being the neighborhood where the Chicago Cubs call home, this ‘hood has amazing spots to photograph!
Where it all began <3

The stadium has been under construction prepping for opening day (that is TODAY), but that didn’t stop these two from showing off their Cubs (and Sox) love;)
