Being in downtown Rockford always provides me with such inspiration and positive energy. I was so glad that Christy and Chad were willing to take my recommendation on the location because I know what amazing backdrops downtown had to offer us. Below is one of the more popular spots for wedding and engagement photography, but no matter how many times I come back here I always walk away with a different, unique shot.
We ended our afternoon of smiles, kisses and clicks over a tasty beverage at Carlyle Brewing Company (I can't resist their Vanilla Cream Ale). I loved being able to put down the camera and get to know them a little bit.
Over our beverage Chad shared that he has a passion about cooking and has hopes to be a chef. I personally love cooking...but even more than cooking...I love to eat! They were both telling me about some of the dishes Chad has made, and I found my stomach growling and mouth watering at just the descriptions of his food. Christy was his biggest fan and supporter, her compliments exemplifying her love for him. If he ever works in a restaurant, I can't wait to try his food.
These two are some of the sweetest, kindest people I have had the pleasure to work with and I cannot wait to be behind the lens during their wedding...I just hope they don't make me cry :)
