Winter Intimate Langham Chicago Wedding Photos

Intimate Langham Chicago Wedding Photos

Congratulations again to Andrew + Kim! After he proposed, it was a pretty easy decision for these two to get married in Chicago…the city where they last spent time together before COVID shut the world down. It was also a pretty easy decision to have their wedding at The Langham Chicago, one of the top luxury hotels in the country! (don’t believe me, just read about it: US News & World Reports) Their lobby is extremely photogenic and we made sure to include their Christmas tree for these winter Langham Chicago wedding photos!

Shout out to Shaun and The Langham Chicago staff for their wonderful service throughout the day!

We took a stroll outside for a few winter Chicago wedding photos! I apppreciate Andrew’s attention to detail…and I’m sure he will appreciate the perfectly centered, symmetrical composition in this photo below! Strong lines throughout the image…leading lines to the bride and groom…and yet the curvature of their dancing provides the perfect balance!

There was a beautiful sunset for Emily + Daniel as we took photos at Lincoln Park! We got lucky with a little bit of warmth for their session. Looking forward to their wedding next year as Jan from Parties, Events and More is planning and coordinating!

Be sure to scroll through all 20+ images as we took some amazing photos with the Lincoln Park Zoo Lights and the Riverwalk at night! These first three are some of our favorites! If you were looking for an engagement or proposal photographer send us a message!

One of my favorite night time spots in the whole city. One benefit to being a Chicago winter engagement photographer: nobody is in the background of these photos!

Fun Chicago Engagement Photos // Amanda + Zack

Fun Chicago Engagement Photos in Lincoln Park + North Ave Beach

So excited to share these fun Chicago engagement photos! This one of the last photos from the session, but I love the moment…and the mixture of urban and nature! If you were looking for a proposal or engagement photographer…send us a message!

We started in Lincoln Park…with a little bit of fall colors in the background!

We took plenty of “looking at the camera” photos…but I really enjoyed all the fun moments!

I don’t think Zack was expecting this…but he was a good sport! Nothing says “fun Chicago engagement photos” like spontaneous moments!

Decided to go a little Ansel Adams with a black and white nature picture

Photographer’s insight: Amanda and Zack are in the perfect spot where the buildings don’t block them! Also wanted to include the Navy Pier Ferris wheel!
