Chelsea and Morwin | An Art Institute of Chicago Engagement Session

She's the yin to his yang. Chelsea, a vibrant stylist in New York City with a penchant for vintage fashion breezed into our initial consult wearing a fabulous fur coat and leather leggings and I knew immediately that I loved her. Morwin, a thoughtful and visionary entrepreneur followed her quietly, assessing the situation without saying much. He's a behind the scenes kind of guy, but I noticed it right away.

Opposites really do attract

As I connected with them, I loved their dynamic. Chelsea is energy, life and light. Morwin is calm and thoughtful. She pushes him outside his comfort zone and he pulls her back into hers. She makes him laugh and shake his head, he decides if 5 seconds is enough time to make it through a crosswalk.

The creative process for a meaningful engagement session

I loved collaborating with Chelsea to bring their session to life. With her background, she was able to clearly describe their relationship in a way that immediately gave me loads of ideas. We worked together to create an inspiration board that depicted a mood, style, and sense of place that best commemorated their dynamic. 

One of the things that gives me profound joy is listening to a couple to understand the core of who they are, processing that in a visual way, like a moodboard, and applying that to bring something to life that they will treasure in the future years. This is a key part of my creative process and Chelsea got that so clearly. 

Chelsea and Morwin, thanks so much for choosing us-we can't wait for your wedding with Cherry Blossom Events this summer. It's going to be a blast!
