These two went to University of Chicago as undergraduate students, but did not get together until they graduated and were both in New York City. Now they are in a long-distance relationship – both Nina and Ryan attend business school, but Nina is at Wharton while Ryan and I are both at Booth. I was introduced to this couple through Agya and Salil, whose Indian wedding I photographed last year.
From the moment I held up my camera, Nina’s infectious, hearty laughter came out. I knew that they were a little nervous leading up to the engagement session, but honestly, the couple that laughs together… photographs well. They showed me some pretty cool spots around campus. We also had incredible good luck with the weather – it was sunny, a little windy, but all the leaves and flowers started to bloom and that made me super happy!
I live for color such as this!
