Jessica + Richie : Engaged

When Gary and I first met, he told me he wanted to live somewhere warm one day.  And not just California warm…like Hawaii.  And as much as I am dying to go to Hawaii…there was no way I was going to live there.  I quickly explained to him that the seasons are part of who I am.  That the excitement of winter turning into Spring or Summer turning into Fall is way too great to ever leave it.  I must have been irresistible because he has since agreed to staying midwestern.  But lately…Chicago has been testing my seasonal love.  50 degrees in June.  Rain every day.  Definitely not my idea of summer.


Last week was one of those days.  When Jessica scheduled her session in June we were sure it would be a lovely summer evening.  But oh no…Chicago had other plans.  Rain.  Wind.  Winter-like temperatures.  But her and Richie were champs.  The snuggled a little closer and made me love them just a little bit more.  These two are so sweet together.  Constantly making each other laugh and so obviously in love.  I had only heard Jessica talk about Richie…but after seeing them together I could see how perfect they are for each other.  Meant to be.  And after our session…I may have been cold and a little wind-blown…but I was even more excited for their wedding!  Without further adieu…meet Jessica and Richie.
