Night-time engagement photography in Chicago

When I first spoke to Brittani about photographing their engagement, she wasn’t sure as to the locations she wanted, but it had to be night-time engagement photography in Chicago.  So, we hit the most known spots and some not so known, but thanks to this wonderful couple, Brittani and Vito, I learned of a new spot for night-time photography, and it happens to be one of my favorites. Only in Chicago, one can find new locations all the time. I will for sure use it in my next ventures.

Although winter is not the ideal time for wedding and engagement photos for some couples, I had the luck of getting some wonderful people who not only wanted a winter wonderland look, but also got it. Weather actually worked in their favor.  These are just some of my favorite photos and I’d like to thank all the couples for putting up with the cold for these unique photos.

When Rick and Larissa mentioned that their wedding would be at Chevy Chase Country Club, I was excited.  I know from the start that it would be not only a very beautiful wedding, but also very romantic.  Of course, having a wedding party that will do anything the bride says, is very helpful.  Although we’ve photographed outside, on the golf course, after the ceremony, they wanted some nighttime wedding photography, and  they brought sparklers, which ended up being a lot of fun.  And the photos turned up great.  I wish them the best in everything.

Cameron and Elisabeth’s surprise engagement photo shoot at Navy Pier, Chicago Illinois

Cameron and Elisabeth’s surprise engagement photos were nothing if not utterly exciting.  From having to change locations due to very heavy rain and thunderstorms, to finding just the right location in the last minute and a future fiancee-to-be who was running out of patience, I had my work cut out for me.  But in the end, the moment was truly a surprise for her and the rain slowed down a bit, just enough to propose and enjoy the Navy Pier fireworks.  I wish them the best in their marriage.
