Building a home together as a couple is always such a fun and exciting task. When Lauren and Nick decided to take the plunge and move from their stomping grounds of the past few years, Wicker Park, to Oak Park it was definitely a huge milestone for them. Not only were they moving neighborhoods, but they were leaving the apartment that they first brought their adorable puppy, Olive, home to. As photographers we love a change of scenery too! Traipsing around the cobblestone streets of Oak Park with this couple was a great reprieve from the norm and new locations always keep our creative juices flowing. We love our Chicago neighborhoods just as much as everyone else, but if it means that Olive gets a yard and these two get a new adventure as homeowners, we’re totally enrolled.
