Hannah and Dathan | La Villa Italian Restaurant | Chicago, Illinois • “We like board games and bourbon and lived in Korea for a couple of years before returning to Chicago.” That’s all someone really has to say for me to want to book them as a client. Honestly. It could just be Korea and I’d be good. It’s probably because I (David) have a love affair with K-Drama (Korean Soap Operas), especially the super romantic ones and all Korean food (which we make at home on a regular basis. There’s always a box of gochujang in our fridge.I also have to say apart from having an awesome “here’s us in a nutshell” email, they are also some of the kindest people ever — as are their parents (no surprise there, right?). I cannot believe how much fun we had at this wedding. To be honest, I felt like a guest more than a vendor and it was so hard to pack up and go. I probably would have stayed longer if our baby boy wasn’t waiting at home for us, lol. I can’t thank these two enough for trusting me on their portrait locations, for their constant care and for their phenomenal families. If you ever renew your vows — just call us, cool? See their engagement session here.
