I had loads of fun photographing Nicole and Allen's engagement photos in downtown Chicago. I will be shooting their wedding on September 19th next year and as you can see above, these Blackhawks fans know how to get the word out to friends and family. I foresee some really cool Save the Date cards arriving in mailboxes soon.
The couple chose the Chicago Sessions engagement package so they will have a color photo gallery as well as vintage looking black and white versions. As usual, we started with the arrival of the train at the platform in Indiana and then made our way all around the city. We stumbled upon Rudy's which is wear the couple dined when they visited Chicago when Allen proposed.
We used the grit of the city as our backdrop. The L train roared above and the now iconic blue bicycles were everywhere. It was a day of laughter as a photo shoot in Chicago can sometimes attract interesting attention from tourist.
While we definitely wanted to capture the grandeur of the windy city, we also wanted some nice close up portraits for Nicole and Allen to show off to family and friends. The Chicago River and the Millennium Garden gave us both.
We ended our session in the evening hours overlooking the city skyline as it was all lit up. The glowing stars of the street lamps matched that of the glowing faces of Nicole and Allen. A perfect ending to a great day of engagement photos in downtown Chicago.
