Garry & Alice have been trying to get some portraits done in Chicago since last December. With both of them living in New York, it has been a little difficult to find the proper time. The holidays got very busy for them and then the unpredictable Chicago weather did not help either. So we just waited it out.
To my delight, six days ago Garry got in touch and asked if it would be possible to squeeze something in this weekend. We were on! We exchanged some emails discussing ideal locations, and other details for the day. This was going to happen. Naturally, I dusted off my equipment that had been hibernating this winter and did some investigative work on the chosen locations. I was ready.
These two were laughing the whole time. Alice literally could not stop and was having a good time. Once outside, they were very good sport about the cold and chill. The Salvage One building was a very unique location, a place where architectural elements are saved from the wrecking ball; an ideal place for recycling conscious individuals. I truly wondered how some of these pieces were moved into the building.
The lighting varied on every floor and so did the artifacts scattered through the premises. By the time we hit all of our locations, the temperature had dropped a little. But by then we had called it a day and I was back on the train on my way home. I had a great time meeting my couple and look forward to the upcoming wedding on warmer days later this year. Enjoy!
