When planning an engagement photo session in Chicago, we highly recommend considering morning. October is one of the best times of the year for photo session in terms of light. Sunset in Chicago is not as magnificent as it is across the lake in Michigan but sunrise is spectacular. We were so glad when Lauren and Robert opted for early morning. We had the most beautiful Chicago morning for engagement photos!

Our first location was Milton Lee Olive park. We consider this location the most picturesque in the city where the peaceful and serene lake Michigan merges with amazing skyline of the city. The backdrop was accentuated by the golden sun-rays. There was nobody in there except for us, so it was much easier to take photos without interruption.

For second location, they choose South garden of the Art Institute. South garden is incredibly romantic! This magical spot is like a little hidden oasis in the middle of the busy city life.

We loved Lauren and Robert’s positive, loving energy! They are a wonderful couple and we can not wait to document their wedding next year!
