June has been the month of travel for Richard and Tara Photography!! It has been a crazy season so far, filled with so many happy couples and memories and I am waaayyyyyyyyy behind on blogging everything!!! I’ve just accepted that blogging is going to be behind for the majority of this season unfortunately! We always strive for perfection, but we are so far from perfect and some things just need to be placed on the back burner. C’est la vie!
Richard and I flew out to Chicago the first weekend in June to photograph Lisa + Josh and it was one of the best trips we’ve ever had! Chicago is an AMAZING city and we were just in awe of it’s beauty and how incredibly NICE everyone was!! Lisa + Josh were such troopers and we agreed on a sunrise session starting at Oak Street Beach in downtown Chicago. The city was empty at 5am (except for a few straggling party animals) which was amazing for photos and just getting around downtown! After Oak Street Beach we headed downtown to the Riverwalk as our next location. As we were walking I realized we were right next to the Chicago Theatre (I had been asking where “the Chicago sign” was from the moment we landed) so we had to stop for some photos and boy are we so glad we did!!! I am still so giddy that we passed this amazing landmark!
After the Riverwalk we zipped down to Millenium Park to get some photos with The Bean! We finally wrapped up the shoot at Lisa + Josh’s rooftop patio with their adorable pup, Raven, who may or may not have tried to eat me… it’s OK Raven, I forgive you :) With custom Oriole’s T-shirts and a pup named Raven, they are definitely representing Baltimore in their new home of Chicago!!
Thank you Lisa + Josh for inviting us out to Chicago and showing us around this amazing city!! We are already thinking about our next trip to Chi-town and cannot wait for your Baltimore Wedding next Spring!!
