Chicago Engagement Photos in the Rain

Some wise person on Pinterest once said, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." That's exactly what Liz and Phil did for this rainy day Chicago engagement session...literally! Not only did these Florida natives get up at the crack of dawn for their engagement shoot, they battled the cold Chicago weather and rain. Most couples would have wanted to reschedule, but they decided to go with it and I think the results were beautiful. The pouring rain was unrelenting, and didn't stop for even a second during this shoot. Luckily, I know my way around Lincoln Park and had a few semi-rain free spots where we were able to stay dry...for a little while at least! At the very end of the session Liz and Phil abandoned the umbrella and decided to just go for it, running out into the wide open. They danced, they kissed, they laughed. It was beautiful! While the conditions and weather for this shoot weren't ideal, we were still able to get great photos of this wonderful couple. Not only did they end up with some unique photos, they got a great story out of it! Thank you both so much for being such good sports! You made my job easy. :)
