I met Steve and Dana for their engagement pictures in Chicago. Engagement sessions are part of my minimum service. I love going to different cites for engagement sessions. Chicago is one of my favorites and is becoming my second photography home. Steve and Dana will be having their wedding and reception in Cleveland next year and they chose me to document their wedding day.
I met them at their favorite neighborhood spot The Green Door Tavern. We then proceeded to the Kinzie Street Bridge adjacent to the Chicago Sun-Times. We also traversed by the Chicago Theater. A favorite spot of mine.
It was a beautifully sunny day, which is exactly how I like it. Direct sunlight allows, for me, dramatic images. I love doing pictures in Chicago. Great architecture abounds presenting great backdrops for engagement pictures. On a sunny day like today, there is not only the direct sunlight, but the light that bounces off of the buildings. The Chicago Riverwalk is where we ended up for our daytime session.
Later that evening, we met up at near the Navy Pier for night pictures in Chicago. These were very dramatic engagement pictures. I mean, how couldn’t it be with the Chicago skyline as our backdrop. Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement pictures in Chicago.
