Chicago Engagement Photos on Lake Michigan
Laura + Pradeep are getting married! Pradeep was actually a groomsman in my own wedding…just over a year ago…and we are so excited for his big day this September! Unfortunately, I won’t be allowed to be their wedding photographer…as I am standing as a groomsman…but I really enjoyed the opportunity to photograph their engagement session! We started on Lake Michigan…where Laura + Pradeep have spent a good amount of time together. And it helps to have a KILLER view of the Chicago skyline!
For those not from Chicago…there are not a lot of beaches in Chicago. Lake Michigan is met with a large cement ‘sidewalk’ where people jog, bike + stroll.
I couldn’t resist a photo of their shadow- and I love the little details…like the way they hold their hands! =)
Laura was all smiles for their engagement session!
So peaceful…and surprisingly…blue! Lake Michigan at its finest!
The sun was reflecting off the water…and it made for this ethereal photo
We stopped briefly with these pink neon lights-
The Cancer Survivors Garden in Millennium Park had a bed of yellow daffodils blooming!
Another engagement photo taking advantage of the yellow color…and it goes so well with Laura’s blue dress!
The happy couple!
Pradeep knew about these cool architectural lines that I would like…and of course I wanted to photograph them there! I waited til this random pedestrian was walking in ‘just’ the right spot to perfectly balance out the photo!
Another cool staircase…I love the tree juxtaposed with concrete architecture.
And one last engagement picture!
We are so excited for your upcoming wedding Laura + Pradeep! We know that wedding planning can be busy…thanks for taking the time for the session + for having so much fun with it!
