Ah, a groom to be who enjoys dipping his soon to be bride!! Now, that's a beautiful thing. I will be sure to remember that come wedding day for Sandra and Andrew.
Our romantic engagement session on the streets of Chicago saw perfect temperatures and had a cast of characters greeting us as we made our way around the city. We saw everything from a singing older gentleman in a wizard looking outfit to a Polish parade to a train full of NFL draft football fanatics. It was a fun and unforgettable day!!
As is tradition in my Chicago Sessions Engagement Package, we started on the South Shore train platform for a romantic photo with the train speeding by. This specialty engagement shoot features everything shot in color with alternate black white versions, for a 1960's style street photography look.
Today is only a sneak peek from the weekend's photo shoot, so I will be mostly showcasing the color versions today. As you can see from the collage below, we traveled the city quite a bit and shot natural candid photos in addition to some romantic staged shots near various landmarks such as the Chicago River, Navy Pier ferris wheel and on State Street in front of the Chicago Theater.
Sandra and Andrew were a bit nervous at the start, but they did great. They naturally interacted with each other like in this shot on Michigan Avenue with the colorful tulips in the foreground. I made sure to get some nice close up portraits of them as well.
Special thanks to Sandra and Andrew for going the extra mile for our epic engagement shoot. I know I was tiring them out a bit. To the point where I'm sure they really enjoyed this fun, laying in the sun shot at the Millennium Park fountain.
I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek look at Sandra and Andrew's romantic engagement photos on the streets of Chicago. Stay tuned here and on Instagram and Facebook for more images. See the links below!!
