Jaw Dropping Engagement Session Photos at Night – Arielle + Brett!

My Best Nighttime Engagement Session Photo Ever?

I know this is bold of me to say…but I think this first nightime engagement picture taken at Millennium Park might be one of my best engagement photos ever. I love the color, the composition and their pose! And I love the feel of Chicago at night! I’ve been shooting these nighttime engagement sessions for the last 5 years and they make my job as a Chicago engagement photographer all the more exciting! It is truly a thrill to capture a moment like this!

Nothing says Chicago more than the Wrigley building in the background!

The Marina City towers are also pretty iconic structures in Chicago…I used to call them the ‘corn on the cob’ buildings when I was a kid =)



We took a few pictures at their hotel…and as much as we take amazing engagement session pictures all over Chicago…I LOVE this photo of the two of them!
