To say Juvy and Alvin love to travel would be quite an understatement. When Juvy first found us on Instagram and followed us, I naturally clicked on her Instagram and followed her back. I found myself endlessly scrolling through all of her beautiful pictures from all over the world. The trees of Grand Teton, Sunsets in Florida, the French Quarter of New Orleans, the ruins of Alcatraz, and of course the beautiful country of the Philippines – where both Juvy and Alvin were born.
The Philippines is also where these two first met nearly 10 years ago. Their lives have moved them all over the world and all over the United States as they both perused their careers as clinical laboratory scientists. While currently living in the Quad Cities, these two chose to show off Chicago for their engagement session. I had an idea of exactly what the pair was looking for – engagement photos that highlighted their love for each other while showing off the beautiful travel destination city of Chicago. Keeping this in mind, we decided to capture some unique Chicago gems which began with the river and bridges. We then went on to showcase the intricate architecture of the downtown area as well as the iconic Chicago skyline.
These two were such a pleasure to meet – and while the Midwest may only be one stop on their well-traveled journey, I am so glad our paths crossed. Congratulations Juvy and Alvin – we are looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful photos from your wedding in the Philippines and to follow your journey for years to come.
