Oh, Wicker Park! I love this Chicago neighborhood – in all its gritty, boheme glory. Lyndsay and Reid were the perfect subjects to really bring the well-worn, raw and run-down backdrops to life. Even the peeling paint in Wicker Park manages to look cool and artfully done just so, don’t you think?
When Lyndsay and I met during the consultation, it was girl crush at first sight. We clicked just like that – we couldn’t stop laughing together, we’re both die-hard Democrats (how that came up, I have no idea!), and at one point I said to Lyndsay, you MUST be an Aries, like me. She said yes, and we both screamed! See? Girl crush.
Bringing this back to their engagement shoot, needless to say, it was non-stop laughter – after Lyndsay got over some nerves (a little liquid courage during your hair and makeup session never hurts!). I think both Reid and Lyndsay look like natural born models, seriously owning it! Especially in this next shot. Rrrrrrrrr.
All in all, I was happy to get a text from Lyndsay after we parted ways – saying that she’s never felt more confident or sexier than she did during the shoot. There’s nothing I like to hear more! I’ll be shooting Lyndsay and Reid’s wedding in 2014 – cheers to double the confidence by then!
