LOOKING FOR PARIS IN CHICAGO
It took me two years to blog these downtown Chicago engagement pictures. I was in town for a corporate event and Se Won asked me to do one hour on the riverwalk. It was the last day of january, with a snowstorm in the forecast and thick clouds gathering for the party. It was cold and the palette was a dull flat grey. To boost the pictures, I decided to give them a parisian feel and to keep the focus ultra thin. I wanted to wash away the background and reduce the buildings to patterns that would make them stand out more. But all of this would have made no sense if it was not that Se Won and Phil are a fantastic couple and a pleasure to spend time with.
I edited this collection so many times but I never published it. The original version was mainly in colors but, as I was preparing them for the post, I decided to convert everything to BW. Save one. My friend and colleague Esenam kept asking me: so when are you gonna post them? so here they are now.
