This past January we had the pleasure of having the coolest photo shoot ever (no seriously, it was -10 that day) with the amazing photographer and our dear friend, Rich Shilkus. Even though he's located in Chicago, he's captured so many awesome moments with his camera all over the world. Here are some of the shots from our photoshoot, and you can check out his work here. We can't recommend him enough!
