The late afternoon sun is one of our favorite times to take pictures! Everything feels so three dimensional!

Maddie wore the perfect color to ‘pop’ in all the photos!

Love all the layers in this photo…the foreground trees framing the Willis Tower, the wooden slab cutting across the middle of the photo…and their kiss perfectly balanced with the Willis Tower! Also…that kiss of sunlight!

Chicago Rooftop Engagement Photos

What a view! We never pass up an opportunity to take rooftop engagement photos!

Here in Chicago, we don’t get to see the ‘sun setting over the horizon’ like you can in other places. But getting up high allows you to see the sun set!

Looking forward to your wedding next year Maddie + John! Thanks for having me as your Chicago engagement photographer!

with love,

Photographer’s Insight: This photo with the Rolls Royce…there’s something about it that I love. The motion, the focused demeanor, the curviness of the car, the vertical lines of the building and the flowing wedding gown…all combined…just looks really cool!

Photographer’s Insight: I love how the triangle of light highlights their kiss and cuts across the vertical columns! In the middle of the strong lines…their sweet embrace! Also love the contrast of concrete/stone and flowers and greenery!
