Chicago Engagement Session // Kara + Kevin!

Chicago Theater Marquee Sign Engagement Photos 

We shot Kara + Kevin’s engagement photos last month throughout Chicago. We started with the Chicago Theater marquee – once the lights turn on, the sign looks fabulous!

As a photographer shooting engagement sessions in Chicago for 10+ years, I have my favorite little nooks around the city, this is one of them!

Photographers Tip: Combining different elements in a photo. The bold lines of the sign, the curvature of the taxi, and a kiss by the bride and groom!
