Are you thinking of having your engagement photographs taken in Chicago? Below are the top 5 best places for engagement photos in Chicago.
1. Logan Square – Industrial meets hipster
This is such a hip and upcoming neighborhood. There are new pubs and restaurants opening all around this neighborhood. Think of this as a more hisper-ish location. What we love about this location is the mix of the industrial feel with cool wall art. That's right, there is a "greetings from Chicago" wall! If you are looking for a raw and industrial location, then this is the spot for you.
2. Olive Park – Iconic Chicago views
A breathtaking combination of Lake Michigan intertwined with the iconic Chicago skyline. This location offers so much versatility for the views, locations and photo possibilities. Our favorite time to photograph here is at sunset. You'll be surprised by how intimate and not crowded this iconic spot is.
3. Millennium Park – Nature Meets Architecture
This is a HUGE park in the heart of Chicago. The combination of the native nature of Chicago and the breath taking Chicago architecture design is incredible. This location is perfect for all four seasons Chicago has to offer. Depending whether you want more green or fall colors is the only factor you will have to consider when booking your engagement session.
4. Art Institute - The Secret Garden
The Art Institute is definitely a hidden gem in the heart of Chicago. Most people know about the museum but not the gardens that surround the museum. The Art Institute gardens are full of lush, eye catching nature all around. We love this place in the fall time when the colors begin to turn golden. This place is awesome during the week because there are no people. Having such a romantic garden to yourselves will make you feel like you are in your own world.
An epic spot after sunset. Surrounded in the heart of the city, the city lights are the perfect touch for your after sunset photos. The Chicago Riverwalk is very busy during the day and as soon as the sun sets, this is the ideal intimate spot for an engagement session. What's more Chicago than the tall buildings and awesome bridges?
