Moody Engagement Session at Salvage One in Chicago, IL
Crystal and Joe
Crystal fell in love with Salvage One while they were looking at locations for their wedding. They decided to get married at Stan Mansion, but still wanted photos at Salvage One. So we rented it out for an engagement shoot!! It is such a fun location— full of weird vintage stuff, crazy lights, couches, and more. There are tons of different rooms and props and little nooks and spaces. There is even an outdoor area with an amazing Chicago sign!
Speaking of the cool/craziness of Salvage One, at one point in the shoot you see Crystal and Joe posing with a big letter “D”. We thought it would be funny, since Crystal is taking on Joe's last name, which starts with a D, to do some fun photos with the huge vintage D. I love mixing up the session to add some fun and kinda weird shots that just scream the two of you!
I love getting to shoot engagement sessions with my couples because it is really the first time I really get to know them!! As this was the first time Crystal and Joe met me in person, we had tons to talk about! I was so excited that they were down to lay on the floor and dance around in the open spaces. It let me know how much fun their wedding is going to be! I also got them to bring a few bottles of champagne to pop in front of the Chicago sign! I am so excited for Crystal and Joe's wedding in just two weeks!! Wow, has the winter gone fast! Wedding season, I am ready for you!!
