Carly & Adam: A Valentine’s Day Love Shoot in Chicago
Photos By Morgan Lee Photography

In celebration of her return to blogging, Chicago-based photographer Morgan Lee recently hosted a special Valentine’s Day photo session giveaway for couples. The lucky winners, Adam and Carly Seidler, a blissfully wedded local pair, would see their real-life romance crystallized against a beautifully playful setting that included a fun flower wall, a garland of fresh greenery, tissue-paper confetti in red and pink hues, and monogrammed macarons in the shape of— what else?—hearts.
As dazzling as the details are, it is the love that shines through the most. And it is of the time-tested, must-be-destined kind, as Adam and Carly go all the way back to high school, when each harbored a secret crush on the other. Years after college, the two bumped into one another at a crowded Chicago bar on Halloween night, and the stars finally aligned.
“He was dressed in authentic Bavarian lederhosen, and I had on a ridiculous hot pink ballerina tutu,” Carly recalls. “No matter, all the butterflies came flitting back…and they have yet to leave.”
