Lincoln Park Engagement Photos!
For Maureen & Chris’ engagement photos, we headed out Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood! One thing I love about Lincoln Park…is the variety of locations to shoot! Since Maureen & Chris will be getting married in a more rural environment, they thought to start their engagement photos at the petting zoo in Lincoln Park!
Smiling and having fun!
Maureen & Chris are ‘normal’ Chicago residents. They aren’t models and spend most of their time in the courtroom or processing paperwork! Like most of my clients, they were apprehensive before the session started…and thankfully, they warmed up and were able to be themselves! It’s part of my job as a wedding photographer…to make my clients feel comfortable in front of the lens!
Did you know there was a petting zoo in Lincoln Park? It’s a great way to get away from the urban Chicago environment.
Taking advantage of the red ‘barn’ in this fun photo!
You almost feel like they were in a far away prairie!
The sun had come out after a cloudy morning and created some magical light!
Some tree leaves turning colors in the background of this engagement photo!
And Lincoln Park is right on Lake Michigan- so we headed out to the beach!
I LOVE this photo! So relaxing and chill!
Such a beautiful couple!
Something serene and beautiful about this image. I went a little more creative with this photo- so peaceful! In this moment I stopped being a wedding photographer…and became a landscape photographer!
Chris loves to wrap his arms around his fiance!
A great ‘in between’ moments photo
The wind was pretty fierce and I loved how it helped to create this photo

A different type of engagement photo- I almost feel like it belongs in a Ralph Lauren ad!
The Chicago skyline is in the background! Thanks for a great photo session Maureen & Chris! The wedding is going to be a ton of fun! I can’t wait!
