Shawna & Joey || Chicago Engagement

To be honest, when I first met Shawna and Joey, I was a little intimidated. I felt like they were too cool for me and I was just a young, silly photographer meeting them trying to pitch my photographic style to them for their Albuquerque wedding. However, little did I know that as soon as I left our meeting, they told their planner (the amazing Vicki Newsom of Orange September), that they didn’t want to meet anyone else; I was the photographer for them. I mean, talk about an honorable experience! And that was only the beginning of our journey. Cut to nine months later and they are flying me to their home city for a gorgeous Chicago engagement shoot. Both Shawna and Joey work for Southwest Airlines – Joey is a Captain and Shawna is a flight attendant. Talk about a dreamy love story! They live in the heart of Downtown Chicago, surrounded by great food, beautiful gardens, and the great Lake Michigan. For our shoot together, they took me to the Rose Garden where Joey had proposed; white roses and green grass surrounded us as the city skyline danced in the mist of the muggy summer heat. The time I spent with them was joyfully wonderful as we giggled our way through the city until dusk trickled in and lead us to a bar to meet some of their friends.  I couldn’t be happier that I had the chance to photograph these two lovers in their beloved city. I know I will look back fondly on this trip for years to come. One last thing: as soon as I saw these two the afternoon of our shoot, it felt like we were old friends. That initial intimidation I felt dissipated and it was like spending an afternoon laughing with old college buddies. Shawna and Joey are truly gems of human beings and I’m eternally grateful that Vicki introduced us.
