Guthries Tavern is a special place. It’s a Chicago institution, a neighborhood bar that has been around for over 30 years. Guthries the kind of place where you can go to relax, have a drink, and forget about your worries. It’s also a place where couples go to fall in love all over again. The bar is known for its board games, craft beer selection and as a popular first or second date spot.
I recently had the pleasure of photographing a Guthries Tavern engagement session. The couple, Kunal and Puja, were so in love. They were laughing, talking, and just enjoying each other’s company. And the setting couldn’t have been more perfect.
The tavern is cozy and inviting. The ceiling is painted with tiles and in the back there are hundreds of board games to choose from. It’s the kind of place where you feel like you can be yourself.
As I photographed Kunal and Puja, I could see how much they loved each other. They were so comfortable and at ease in each other’s arms. They were also so excited about their upcoming wedding.
I know that their wedding day will be a beautiful celebration of their love. And I’m so grateful that I was able to capture a little bit of their love story at during their Guthries Tavern engagement.
After Guthries Tavern, we also hit up the Wrigley Building and Michigan Ave for some timeless Chicago engagement photos. The couple looked stunning against the backdrop of the city’s iconic architecture. And the energy of the city was palpable.
At one point, the couple took a break to buy some cotton candy from a local vendor. They fed each other the sweet treat, and it was a truly adorable moment.
This Guthries Tavern engagement session was just soo much fun to shoot. The couple was so easygoing and natural in front of the camera, and they were clearly in love. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!
