We are looking forward to Gina and Josh's wedding coming up this fall. They wanted to incorporate their classic Chicago neighborhood in their engagement portraits and save-the-date cards, and Wedding Creativo Photography owner Giorgio had a lot of fun going around with this lovely couple on this beautiful spring day. Afterwards, we custom designed a wine and cream color save-the-date postcard, with a back side clover motif that mirrored the clover design in the staircase in the photo.
Tabitha and Matthew's spring engagement session reminded me of Albert Lamorisse's classic 1956 French film The Red Balloon. It is a simple but sweet movie about a boy and a balloon that seems to have a personality of its own. There is almost no dialogue, so you don't really need to understand French to appreciate the film.
I suppose a similar notion is true with couples in love. There is an unspoken language of understanding and appreciation.
We are really excited about participating in Love at Breathtaking Heights, an exclusive boutique wedding show hosted by the The Metroplitan Club. This event is coming up this Saturday, January 23, 2010 at Willis Tower (formally Sears Tower). There will be several door prizes, including our awesome giveaway for a premium Engagement Portrait package. Also, Chicago Style Unveiled is giving away tickets to this event. Be sure to leave a comment on thier site before noon tomorrow, January 20, for a chance to win!
During the door prize drawings at 5:30, we will be giving away a premium Engagement Package to one lucky couple, which will include:
- A Location Engagement Session (downtown Chicago area)
- Our custom-designed Wishes and Wisdom™ Guestbook
- Framed 8x10 Engagement Print
