Well we’ve got a doozy for you this week and that doozy is a Star Wars Engagement – A Turn To The Dark Side!  Katie and Paul fancy themselves as connoisseurs of all things comic book, Harry Potter and of course Star Wars!  As the planning began of their engagement session and they said to me, “since you do a lot of themed shoots, what if we did a Star Wars engagement shoot?”  And even though I haven’t been a die hard fan of Star Wars, I certainly am now!  The thing that we all wanted to avoid was just grabbing a couple lightsabers and just going straight into a fight scene.  Like any movie, there had to be some sort of story.

The story begins with Katie (part beauty, part resident ass kicker) and Paul (Sith Lord extraordinaire) going about their day as they normally would.  They get ready to head out, grab their trusty lightsabers and go about their business.  It’s a small world, especially in Chicago and it doesn’t take long for them to spot one another on opposite sides of the tracks.  The only problem here is that rather than love twinkling in their eyes, instead they have a desire to remove the other one from the face of the planet.

Paul pursues Katie and they end up coming face to face in the belly of the Chicago underground.  Paul does start off just a bit cocky and almost immediately has his lightsaber busted out of his hand by Katie.  Fortunately, Superman has a timeshare near by and feels that even though this is a clear battle of good and evil…it really should be a fair fight.  He brings his own backup to assist Paul.  So why the title of “A Turn To The Dark Side”?  You’ll have to get through all the images to find out!Engagement individual portrait
