With sweeping views of the city where they fell in love and where they call home, this couple's engagement photos taken in the crown of Chicago's Tribune Tower are absolutely breathtaking.  Clary Pfeiffer Photography captured these two lovebirds as they danced and spun around, and we can't get enough of their joyful expressions... or the beautiful movement of Torie's gorg ruffled skirt.

From Clary Pfeiffer Photography... Torie and Amarit's entire session was in the crown of The Chicago Tribune Tower, high above the city, looking over the river and white gleaming skyscrapers. This perspective of Chicago is breathtaking and one of my favorite locations ever for a city session! Being so high up in the sky felt magical. One moment I loved is The Wrigley Building's clock peeking through while Amarit spun Torie in her gorgeous ruffled skirt.

Torie is wearing an A.L.C. top, a ruffled skirt from Alice and Olivia, and pumps from Pour La Victoire. Her engagement ring and wedding band were designed with help from Seth Brennecke at Diamond Consultants. Amarit is wearing a three piece suit from Suitsupply with shoes from To Boot New York. His watch is his wedding gift from Torie, a vintage Rolex from the year he was born.

From the Groom... Despite growing up just a few blocks from one another and attending rival high schools in downtown Chicago, Torie and I never met until after college when we both began working for Lettuce Entertain You in 2011. We became great friends almost immediately, and there was always a distinct gravity in our relationship, although it took over 2 years before we both realized what was really going on. Our close friends tell us they always knew we had strong chemistry, but we were both oblivious to the fact that we were falling in love with one another.

Three years later, I asked Torie to marry me in New York where I took her on our first date. Our engagement photos were taken at the beautiful Tribune Tower, an historic Chicago landmark completed in 1925. Although we both grew up a few blocks from the building and spent many years working just down the street, it was our first time up in the famous "crown" of the tower – looking down on the Chicago river and the very building in which we met six years earlier.
