Incorporating significant neighborhood locations, date night spots, and even furry family members is always something we’re going to suggest when planning your engagement portrait session. Lucky for us, Keri + John had already come to us with a few ideas so plotting out the perfect path from Chicago’s Loop to the Thompson Hotel was such a fun task for us! While Keri + John are getting ready to move into some new digs downtown before they tie the knot, the Loop will always hold a special place in their heart as their first place together. There adorable pup, Louis, took a brief stroll with us along the riverfront before we made our way to the infamous Board of Trade. Last, but certainly not least, was our final stop at Thompson Hotel. Keri and John not only had their first date here, but got engaged here as well. AND we’ll be photographing their wedding at this very same location in just a few short months. We like to think that good things come in threes and this totally proves our point!
