An Epic Engagement Photo Shoot Chicago // N&J

Engagement Photo Shoot Chicago // Nicole + Jeff

It was the most amazing weather for their engagement photo shoot Chicago! Since they are getting married out of town…Nicole and Jeff wanted to make sure to highlight our beautiful city in their engagement pictures!

If you were needing an engagement photographer…be sure to send us a message! (we also photograph families and branding/headshots)

Love this first photo – everything about this photo is about lines…until you see their smiles and slight curve of their bodies…and their little doggy walking alongside is everything!

Their dog would lick his lips every time the word “kiss” was said aloud. Caught this perfect moment!

The Riverwalk is an amazing spot for pictures – while it was crowded on this Saturday evening, we were able to get some great pictures!
