When you meet up with a couple and they are already ALL smiles, you know it’s going to be a great day. Patrice and Peter met me on Chicago’s beautiful river-walk to start out their pictures. But before we starting snapping away, we just happened to be next to City Winery, so WINE not have a drink to celebrate right?! 😉
These two, just like EVERY OTHER COUPLE, laughed at how awkward they imagined they would probably be for pictures. I knew as soon as we sat down and starting chatting, though, that this wasn’t the case at all. They were so very easy to talk to and relate to, and I immediately felt as though we had done this before. Patrice had the sweetest smile and every so often you could catch them glancing over at each other with a little smile or giggle. That right there folks, that’s when I know you will not and CANNOT be awkward in pictures. When you are comfortable with each other, that shows on camera. And even if you feel silly, you will laugh and smile TOGETHER. That’s what this is all about after all…celebrating and having fun as a couple.
So after a glass to celebrate and a little more reassurance from yours truly, we went walking through the crowds on the river walk.
