Neha and Ryan Engagement Session
Our day with Neha and Ryan was a lot of fun! The two of them make a great couple, and really easy to work with. Neha and Ryan, who had met at the University of Chicago, had been great friends for a while before they started dating. December 31, 2012, Neha and Ryan attended the same New Years Eve party. As the clock struck midnight, the couple shared a NYE kiss, which lead to the beginning of their relationship. For a little while, they secretly dated. Neha said, "it was kind of Grey's Anatomy scandalous". However, that didn't last long, considering they were awful at keeping it a secret. Around the following Thanksgiving, Ryan proposed over a candlelit dinner set up at her apartment- roses and champaign included! Afterwards, he surprised Neha by bringing her to the Hancock Tower, where members of their families awaited to help them celebrate their engagement.
We asked the Neha for any advice she might have for brides planning their weddings. She said, "My advice for future couples is to enjoy the process of wedding planning. The actually wedding day happens so quickly, but the planning takes months. It's important to enjoy every moment and use it as a bonding experience with your fiancé and family. My dad always tells me this whenever I stress out and it's great advice. It has been a bonding experience for not only Ryan and me but for us to bond with each other's families. Watching Ryan's family embrace my Indian culture has been so sweet and special! Ryan always says that the details of the wedding day don't matter - what's important is that we have a loving relationship and a good life together!"
With the weather being a little chilly out, we moved to an indoor location for the wedding session where we could still incorporate the sunlight into the photos still. We loved working at Salvage One! It's a beautiful place to take pictures. There are so many different options for scenes, it's almost overwhelming. Our suggestion for photographers and couples is to plan ahead, especially because couples are paying per hour. If photographers can scout the venue before the actual photo session, take some pictures of possibilities, that helps a lot. Also, if there will be any wardrobe changes, having those planned in advance helps with the flow of the session.
