Rachel & Mike | Chicago Engagement Photographer

“When I first knew I loved her, I couldn’t work up the courage to say it. So I said ‘Ich liebe dich’, knowing she didn’t know German. She had no idea what I’d said until much later, when I finally said ‘I love you.'”

Rachel and Mike are pretty damn remarkable. We had a blast shooting these pictures in downtown Chicago, the city where these two sweet Michiganders (represent) met and fell in love. We braved the encroaching winter cold for a walk through Millennium Park and Chicago’s very own Christkindlmarket, and even enjoyed some treats, emblazoned with the words ‘Ich Liebe Dich.’

How very appropriate.
