Why have an engagement session?
I encourage all couples to consider an engagement session before their wedding, even if they’ve already had one previously. That’s because they are are an amazing opportunity for all of us to get to know each other further and result in better images on your wedding day. Even more, these sessions help me better learn your personalities and how the two of you interact with each other and how best to direct, guide, and pose you for photos that look natural and relaxed.
Chicago engagement photography locations
It’s no secret that Chicago is a beautiful city with lots of green space due to our amazing lakefront. So this makes our city the perfect backdrop for any engagement session. Firstly, we have the river walk cutting right through downtown. This is one of my personal favorites locations as it incorporates the skyline and our iconic bridges. Secondly, we have the lakefront paths and parks. It’s hard to beat an engagement session at North Ave beach overlooking the water with the buildings behind. Thirdly, we have our incredible museums. The Art Institute of Chicago is a classic indoor spot for engagement photos, moreover the Art Institute South Garden is a gorgeous and quiet spot in the heart of downtown. Of course, there are many other great locations as well and as a Chicago engagement photographer I can provide suggestions.
