Christy and Nicky had very intimate sunset engagement photos in Chicago. It started out with dramatic clouds coming in, which we loved to incorporate in the photos. Minutes later, it began to pour down on us. We took on a challenge and decided to incorporate the rain into their sunset engagement photos creating a more intimate feel. Plus, when it rains the city gets pretty empty and that's the way we love it for photos.
Our first day was October 22, 2008 at Cafe Babareeba. My sister and brother in law set us up. We started the night by rearranging the table at the restaurant from long ways to sideways so that we could sit closer to each other and ended the night with both of our cheeks hurting from smiling and laughing so much. It was easy and fun to be together and the attraction was magnetic. There was no question that he was the one for me. I was always the independent girl who chased after her career and studied abroad. I kept love on the back burner, but when Nicky came along, he swept me off my feet and I realized what truly mattered in life. Nicky proposed the night before my birthday this year in January very casually by surprising me with some coffee and a sweet ring. We celebrated the next day with close friends and family at Nellcote. Nicky is the love of my life. He is my best friend who makes me laugh and let's me feel comfortable to be myself. I know that he loves me so much too because he does so much to make me happy (like taking the engagement pictures). We love to just hang out casually, but we also enjoy spending time with our families, dressing up for a romantic night in the city (any excuse for me to wear my heels!), and during the summer we ride on his Harley to Wisconsin.
