Kansas City is not Chicago =) Anita + Bret’s Engagement Photos in Chicago!

All the way from Kansas City-

Anita and Bret have fond memories of Chicago. Kansas City is now home for them. So when we planned their engagement photo session in Chicago…they were ecstatic to say the least! I was thankful to be their engagement photographer, as they were so excited for their photoshoot! I wanted to make sure they had some great photos from Chicago to hang on their Kansas City walls! =)

Engagement Session in Chicago-

We found a really cool urban spot- a railroad over run w/grass…and the setting sun was just gorgeous! And though they were a bit nervous…I loved how they laughed so much together! Laughter and smiles make a photo session so much more fun for a photographer! =)

A cool silhouette photo of them walking on the tracks-

Hard to believe we were in Chicago for this shot! Almost feels like a prairie somewhere-

Urban Chicago-

A cool photo with sunflare in the background-

Such a fun couple to hangout with- it’s going to be a long wait til their wedding next year!

We did a little urban exploration for these next photos!

Chicago Engagement Photos at NIGHT!

As the sun set…we captured these photos at night! By now you may have become used to seeing these night sessions on my blog! It’s been a blast to do something different during an engagement photo session! If you like these night photos, search ‘night photography’ on the blog…and you will find more posts with photos like these!

You have got to get the Chicago Skyline in the background

We loved the Chicago bridges!

Enjoying a moment together!

And…my absolute FAVORITE CHICAGO ENGAGEMENT PHOTO from the night! So freaking cool!

Thanks Anita + Bret for a great time together! We really came up with some unique images together! Thanks for being so excited throughout the whole shoot!

Can’t wait til the wedding!

with love,

Your wedding + engagement photographer,
