Chicago Boating Engagement Photos / Sunset + Wrigley Field

Chicago Boating Engagement Photos + Wrigley Field + Sunset!

Though the temperature just dropped this past week, overall, the weather this past fall has been amazing! It was perfect for Megan and Michael’s Chicago boating engagement photos! We were able to cruise the river in shorts…in October! We ended their session with Chicago sunset engagement photos. Before we share their photos on the boat or at Wrigley Field, here’s one of the best shots with the Chicago skyline!

Chicago Boating Engagement Photos

As a Chicago engagement photographer, I always enjoy fresh perspectives when taking pictures in our city! When Michael mentioned they he is an avid boater, we knew we had a great idea on our hand! Chicago boating engagement photos!

With COVID season upon us, their Chicago boating engagement photos allowed us to be socially distant from EVERYONE!

Nothing says “Chicago engagement photos” like a shot with our iconic bridges! Nothing says “unique perspective” like taking said Chicago engagement photos on a boat in the middle of the river!

As the boating season here in Chicago winds down, the river was empty! It made for such peaceful photos!

One of my favorite views of the city when on a boat is from the east. While we would have loved to have gone out to the lake through the locks, due to our time constraints, we just made sure to get this view!

Wrigley Field Engagement Photos

Just prior to our boating trip, we stopped by Wrigley Field for a few pictures!

Chicago Sunset Engagement Photos

After finishing up our time on the boat, we headed down to Buckingham Fountain for a few Chicago sunset engagement photos with the skyline! Though the fountain was not on, we were still able to capture the glowing lights of the buildings!

Love how this photo incorporates this iconic Chicago “diamond roof?” building in the background!

As a Chicago engagement photographer, capturing the sunset is challenging as the sun sets west, and the light is generally blocked by the tall buildings. But the sunset does create beautiful colors in the sky!

Thanks Megan + Michael for a wonderful engagement session! Your Chicago boating engagement photos were so great! (If anyone else would like to have an engagement session on a boat, let me know!) Can’t wait until your wedding next year!

with love,
