When you live in Chicago and your favorite food in the whole world is pizza and your favorite pizza joint is serving heart-shaped pies for Valentine's Day then you absolutely have to snag the opportunity to make an adorable date with your wedding photographer. This cute-as-can-be couple served up a piping hot dish of sweetness during their charming engagement session with Cristina G Photography at Giordano's followed by a romantic stroll. See the entire delightful date in the full gallery!
From Cristina of Cristina G Photography... This engagement session should have probably been titled "For the Love of Pizza!" Bob and Ashley are a true Chicago couple tying the knot a little over a month from now at the beautiful Westin Hotel in Lombard, Illinois. Their first engagement session, which provided them with cute save-the-date images, was captured by Ashley's mom right after they got engaged, and she did an amazing job with Ashley's new camera! Fast forward to a few months later, and the opportunity presented itself for a new engagement session — one with their wedding photographer. Inspired by an article about Giordano's Pizza Valentine's Day sensation, the heart-shaped stuffed pizza, Cristina G of Cristina G Photography decided to gift Ashley and Bob an early wedding present of a Valentine's Day date engagement session in downtown Chicago to try the famous Giordano's deep dish pizza they know and love, but in a heart shape! Bob was excited beyond words — rumor has it that his favorite thing in the whole wide world is pizza!
So we headed out downtown, and with the help of the wonderful people at Giordano's, we put together a spread for them that is bound to be remembered forever! The soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Aikens had a great time at their romantic heart-shaped pizza dinner, followed by a brisk evening walk in the beautiful 45 degree January weather — something we have quite possibly never seen before in the windy city!
