This week’s “retro” post is dedicated to Allison and Jason! These two were scheduled to tie the knot in Evanston last fall, inevitably deciding to postpone the festivities. I’m so happy we had a chance to meet in person before things changed! Allison and Jason currently live in Florida, and we made sure to schedule their Lincoln Park Zoo engagement session while they were in town that October.
On a romantic and rainy afternoon, I met up with these two at Lincoln Park Zoo. The location was no accident… They spent lots of time here together during their student days at Northwestern University, so of course we had to visit! We took a stroll along the Nature Boardwalk, stayed warm inside the Reptile House, and even caught a little Chicago rain. Jason and Allison were a treat to photograph, and the weather didn’t faze them at all 🙂
Looking back at these sessions from the “before times” has really helped put things into perspective. It’s no secret that the wedding industry has changed fundamentally over the past year, and it’s not over yet! I cannot speak for every vendor, but as for me: safety is a priority. I will continue to adapt to the needs of my couples, and am always excited to share their stories.
Allison and Jason: Thank you for having me capture these memories for you! Can’t wait for you to finally make it official this year!!
