Andrea + Charlie | A Chicago Engagement Session

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’m still giving thanks today, and I’m certainly thankful for my family, friends, and amazing clients like Andrea and Charlie!

Last weekend, I had the joy of spending an afternoon with this amazing couple. We started out at Andrea’s apartment, then wandered through the gorgeous fall colors over to the edge of Roscoe Village, and wrapped up with a glass of wine at Frasca Pizzeria + Wine Bar, the place where they had their first date and also where Charlie popped the question!

I think this is one of the longest engagement photography posts I’ve done on my blog - Andrea and Charlie just had so many amazing moments and were so gracious to keep me along photographing for a couple of hours! I didn’t want to leave; there was so much great photo eye-candy. :) You’re going to love this session.

The art on the walls of Andrea’s apartment was so lovely and the highlight was this gorgeous piece that Andrea purchased from an artist in South Haven, Michigan - the town in which the two will be married next summer!

Love, love, love the photo below:

I had no trouble finding a smile on Andrea’s face!

Charlie is also a talented guitarist. Andrea is one lucky girl.

Andrea’s ring is gorgeous, and I loved the look of diamonds against her gorgeous leather boots. :)

Did I mention Charlie sings too? So dreamy …

Love this moment:

Leaf fight anyone? :) :)

I don’t know what else to say … they are perfect together!

After a wardrobe change, we headed over to Frasca, the most lovely wine bar where they had their first date and then where they got engaged. This place has so much meaning for them, and it sure shows in their faces throughout these photos.

We caught Frasca at one of the rare moments when the restaurant is slow. Just about a half hour later, the dinner rush began and there wasn’t an empty table in the place!

OK, maybe I went overboard on the ring shots, but it was so gorgeous! (As were Andrea and Charlie!)

And finally, we had to grab a photo of the exact table where Charlie proposed!

Andrea and Charlie, thank you so much for the most fabulous Chicago engagement session I could have asked for! And thanks especially for introducing me to Frasca - I’m hooked! I can’t wait for your wedding in June!
