Sometimes it can be hard to do photos this time of year. It’s cold, it’s gray, and everyone is just counting down the days until winter is over. Kishan and Sonam didn’t let that affect them. They brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to their shoot, and it shows.
They grew up in the suburbs, but now they’ve been converted to city life, so they wanted some of Chicago’s landmarks to be part of their photos. We started at the Chicago Cultural Center and worked our way over to Cloud Gate (or ‘the bean’ as most call it) before wrapping up at Buckingham Fountain with a full view of the skyline.
Anthony lives here in the states, just outside Chicago. Joy teaches in the Dominican Republic. Since most of their relationship is long-distance, the excitement they felt just to be with each other was so obvious during this shoot.
Joy has made the trip back for Christmas several times and she described how usually, she feels such a shock from the cold when she steps off the plane. This time, she told us, she was filled with so much excitement to see Anthony that she barely felt the cold.
Their wedding is coming up in August, so they will be separated for a while longer as Joy finishes up the school year. However, their next reunion will be even more special since they’ll finally be together for good.
Louise and Sheldon braved the cold windy weather with us on Saturday. We started at their first apartment in the city. Then we walked to their favorite cafe, and talked about their wedding plans over a cup of coffee. We finished up on a friend’s rooftop which gave an amazing view of the Chicago skyline.
