Chicago Engagement Photographer | Chelsey and Rudy | Post by David • | “Do you know Meredith and Ulises?” she asked on the phone. This seemed to me like a silly question. Of course I did. We’ve done more sessions with those two than any other client, so much so that we’ve often thought of having a frequent client card and naming it after them. “Yes,” I replied, half-expecting her to tell me that she was a sorority sister (the usual answer) or a friend or family member, something simple. “This is crazy but we’ve been looking for a wedding photographer in Chicago and you guys were at the top of our list. Well we went downstairs to chat with our neighbors and loved their photos. We asked if they had heard of Cathy and David and it turns out you were their photographers!” The only thing I could think to say was, “What?” Because let’s be honest. It’s pretty crazy. We booked Meredith and Ulises for their Bloomington Indiana engagement session back when we lived in southern Indiana, shot their Captiva Florida destination wedding and then moved to Chicago, soon after followed by them (which I secretly tell myself was so that we could keep taking their photos). And then they happen to be downstairs neighbors with a couple who was considering us as their wedding photographer? This brings “small world” to a whole new level. Discovering how perfect this couple was for us was in now way surprising. These two were a perfect fit, having us meet them at a local farm-to-table restaurant to start their engagement session where he proposed and taking photos on the rooftop patio. After that we walked through the streets of their neighborhood (not far from where we used to live when we lived in the city) and then swinging by their house for an outfit change. Chelsey and Rudy were incredible to work with and I know their wedding at Room 1520 will be no different.
