When the team showed up to Schiller Park we were looking at the sky and praying it wouldn't pour on us. Luckily Angela and Eric were down for whatever happened! We were getting ready when I looked across the park and could just tell our couple was walking towards us. They were dressed perfectly!! This was going to be a great shoot...regardless of the rain.
We all said our hellos and headed to the bridge in the middle of the park. If you've ever been, you probably know exactly what I'm talking about. We were also thankful the park wasn't over crowded (probably because of the storm cloud looming above us) but we continued on. Angela and Eric are easy to take photos of because they seriously have a great time together.
They were so much fun to take photos of and were down for any crazy idea we could think of. Once we finished with our walk in the park we stopped for a quick change of cloths (literally in their car on the side of the road) and headed to the cute streets of German Village. I love the brick roads the best...and brick sidewalk...and basically everything about the old feel of German Village. We even ran into a Jeni's Ice Cream window I didn't even know was there!! That's when the idea hit me...LET'S USE THE ICE CREAM. We asked Angela and Eric their thoughts and got a resounding YES!!! We finished up our middle of the street photos and rain shots (it did sprinkle on us a little but the perfect amount really). Can we talk about the fact that Angela's hair stayed perfect?!?!?
Remember the Jeni's Ice Cream comment? Well nows the time!! We bought some ice cream cones and hit the streets...or I guess alleys of German Village...you get the point. Can I just say, these two couldn't be happier they got to eat ice cream cones on their shoot. We even had a moment when Eric said, "I don't even think I've looked at you one (to Angela) since I've gotten this ice cream cone!" They had us cracking up and looked adorable. Which really makes sense.
That's basically what we did during their shoot! If you'd like to see the rest of their awesome and hilarious shoot check out the link -----> ANGELA + ERIC ENGAGEMENT SESSION
