Tuesday I had the privilege of working with Jackie and Jillian from the Metropolitan Club in the Willis Tower (Chicago) to photograph the women’s expo they were hosting. This is the same club we had our wedding show at (you can view the blog and photos from that here, here, and here) back in January. I had such a great time at the Women’s Expo. It’s so inspiring to see women running their own business’ and empowering themselves to be successful. The first woman I met was Karen Gill of Karen Joy Handcrafted Jewelry. Her jewelry is just gorgeous! She was so sweet and gave me a beautiful, handmade necklace for photographing her jewelry. She was so sweet! As I walked around taking pictures of as many vendor tables as I could I collected about 18 business cards of fabulous, inspiring women in business. It was a pleasure working with Jackie and Jillian. I worked with Jillian for the wedding show and she initially contacted me regarding the Women’s Expo but I primarily worked with Jackie. They are both very sweet, awesome women! After the expo, Colby and I went up to the Metropolitan Club restaurant and enjoyed the tastiest, most fabulous, hands down, best dinner EVER! I know.. Tons of adjectives there, but totally true! We overlooked the city on the 66th floor. It was such a nice, relaxing experience in a romantic, beautiful city setting. It was the perfect way to end the evening. Here are some of my favorite photos from the night.
Below is a list of business’ from the cards I collected.
