February in the Midwest can be counted on for its cold temperatures, but that means it’s the perfect time for an indoor photo shoot! I met up with Chloe and Peter downtown on one such dreary winter morning. This cute couple will be getting married next year at a destination wedding in Puerto Rico, but they needed a few shots for their “Save the Date” cards and I was happy to oblige. We briefly ducked into the Grand Avenue mall Plankinton Arcade. This historic building is a well known fixture in the city, and features lovely architectural details such as spiral staircases that twist in spiral formation around a fountain in the center. The lower level of this mostly empty former commercial center is brightly lit from overhead skylights, making it the perfect spot to duck inside for a few quick photos before heading out into the dreary winter afternoon.
