This Chicago engagement photos session with Alina and Mike is way overdue but better late than never. Back in June, WASIO photography collaborated with Paula from Pink With Diamonds to capture one of the most romantic surprise proposals for Alina and Mike. Please read their story and see the photos from their surprise proposal. Chicago got seriously spoiled with amazing fall weather and we got to take advantage of both the nice weather and rich colors in the Art Institute Gardens and Millennium Park. It's not often you get to experience an empty garden here but there was a huge demonstration going on and we were gifted the honor to enjoy the gardens alone. Alina and Mike are a very elegant and classy couple. I love their story of how the came to be a couple and I think we have a strong weak spot for high school and college sweethearts. They were so natural in front of the camera and we had such a fun session together.
For practically most of their session we incorporated the Profoto B1 light which is an awesome off camera flash that we have fallen in love with and use for all of our sessions. It's a little on the heavier side so if using outdoors its important to have an assistant hold it. The light quality you get from it is unlike anything we have ever experienced before.
