Breathtaking Downtown Chicago Skyline Engagements

This couple’s Downtown Chicago Skyline Engagement was absolutely beautiful! If you know me at all, you know that Chicago is my absolute favorite city. I’m a very sentimental person and I always grew up going to the “city” since we only lived about 45 minutes away. There’s something so special about Chicago to me and when Alisha + Thomas decided that they wanted the skyline in their engagement photos, I was 1000% onboard. Their Downtown Chicago Skyline Engagement was one for the books.

I knew that moving back north, I wanted to shoot more in Chicago. More engagement sessions, more weddings, etc. Chicago is only about 2-2.5 hours away from me so it’s very do-able! Anyway, let me tell you about how our morning went. One thing about shooting in Downtown Chicago, is that it can get VERY busy. People everywhere, constantly something going on, etc. We decided that the best time to do their engagement photos would be at sunrise and it definitely was! Even though it was a little chilly, the way the sun hit the city, and the fact that it was us three and a few others, it was a perfect morning.

I arrived in Chicago around 5:30am and got to snuggle their new pup, Bear. Again, if you know me, you know I’m a HUGE sucker for dogs/puppies/anything so that definitely made my morning! It was such a great morning in the city and cannot wait to go back (hopefully) soon!

Ready to plan your Chicago Skyline session?

Like I said before, I seriously can’t wait to go back to Chicago and shoot! If you’re thinking about having a session here, don’t be afraid to reach out as soon as possible! I want to make sure we get you the date you want, and the best way to do that is to secure it as soon as you can.
