December in Chicago can be a tricky proposition.    Engagement sessions in December in Chicago can even trickier.    But, as luck would have it, we got some unusually warm weather and it was perfectly sunny most of the day.     We started out at the lakefront to get some skyline shots.   (thanks to Jack for his quick thinking on some rock/concrete engineering to keep my gear from completely breaking), and then afterwards headed over to Restoration Hardware's massive new store at the 101-year-old Three Arts Club of Chicago building in the Gold Coast.     While the lighting was iffy, and we felt like we probably had to be a bit sneaky to get some shots, we came away with a few that turned out okay.     What a cool store it is though, and they look like they could host a pretty stunning wedding if they wanted to!   

Anyway, here's the quick set, hope you enjoy!
