Engagement Shoot: It’s a Small World After All

Thanks to the Internet, sharing your life’s special moments is now more possible than ever. And the same tools that allow you to share your world also allow you to peek at others, as well. When you’re an outside viewer, it’s so easy to be touched by someone’s emotion without feeling like you’re intruding on an intimate moment. As Rebecca Marie Photography & Design points out, “You probably watch that video, tear up, and think ‘Oh my gosh, how amazing!’ without ever thinking you’ll actually meet the people involved and thus be faced with owning up to the rather awkward feeling of snooping in on someone else’s life without them knowing.” But sometimes the unexpected happens. Rebecca Marie Photography & Design knew Jodi and Dan’s engagement story well before they ever called her about shooting their engagement session, for she had seen the video of their musical-inspired proposal at Millennium Park on YouTube! After Marie revealed this unusual coincidence, the trio got to work planning a romantic engagement session. Set on the snow-covered streets of downtown Chicago, the sweet couple bundled up and braved the frigid December winds (they don’t call it “The Windy City” for nothing!). The results are stunning. Not only did the city provide an exceptional backdrop, the duo’s outfit choices popped beautifully against the grey skyline. In fact, Rebecca Marie Photography & Design says it best, “These two also totally nailed the winter look! Their cozy textured and bright colored scarves kept them looking not only spiffy but sensibly warm. Jodi’s light grey Calvin Klein coat photographed perfectly and you know Dan is a man with an eye for detail when he snags a peacoat with perfect red stitching under the collar!” We may just be hopeless romantics, but we say that fate brought these three together so they could have this amazing day; a day that now inspires us and you through the pages of this very blog. Aren’t you glad that the World Wide Web makes this a small world after all?!
