It's uncommon for us to meet a couple for the very first time at their engagement session. The situation leaves everyone a little on edge because we are hoping the couple will be fun and relaxed in front of the camera, and the couple is hoping that we will make them feel at ease and get some really great photos of them. Thankfully, with Megan and Guy the initial uncertainty melted away almost immediately. It felt like we had known them for a while because they were easy to get along with, casual, and fun!
One of the first things we noticed was that Megan wore a bright colored dress with some awesome 3-inch heels -- and then proceeded to hike 2 miles from Millennium Park to Adler Planetarium in those heels with ease. Color us impressed! Guy had a great sense of humor and was incredibly sweet to Megan. His down-to-earth personality and their go-with-the-flow attitudes made their e-session a piece of cake.
The cute moments came very naturally to them. We hardly ever prompted them to hold hands or kiss for a photo because they were already doing that candidly, which made our jobs really easy. They clearly make each other very happy. :]
Megan and Guy -- it was so great getting to know you. Thanks for being such troopers with all the walking and unexpectedly frigid winds. (Perhaps it was good practice for your upcoming winter wedding?) ;] We can't wait to be part of your special day in December.
