It was so much fun to capture Diana's and Michael's engagement photos around Chicago a few weeks ago. They had a sunset session and we met them at the art institute a couple of hours before sunset. There was a blue's fest going on downtown but that didn't stop us from capturing Diana and Michael from a creative standpoint to eliminate the crowds in most of the pictures. Sparks flew immediately when Diana and Michael met. She thought he was Polish but learned that he was of Lithuanian and Italian decent. Since he grew up in Chicago, he was able to win her over with the random Polish sayings he had learned from childhood friends. The strong connection and passion between them was very exciting to capture for us. Diana works in a healthcare PR firm and is a news junkie, reading the headlines first thing every morning and interacting with the media daily. Michael works for Nabisco and can tell you the inside scoop regarding upcoming Oreo and Triscuit flavors and details of household snack consumption. They share a common love for exploring. Together for four years, they've gotten their passports stamped in travels to Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and most recently to St. Lucia where they got engaged one romantic summer evening. Diana and Michael celebrated the next day with the ultimate island activities drinking rum punch, snorkeling, boating, dolphin watching, mud bathing, waterfall diving, dancing, and loving life. The toughest wedding decision has been the honeymoon destination for them. They currently live together in the Little Italy area of Chicago. They really wanted some nighttime photos, since they enjoy exploring Chicago nightlife on the weekends. In their spare time they love traveling, weddings, grocery shopping, and spending time with friends, families and each other. They are so excited to get married next May in Connecticut at the church where Diana's parents were married over 34 years ago. The celebration will include two days of dancing, food and fun.
