Maureen + Marty’s Engagement Pictures!

Chicago is a fabulous city for pictures. Wedding photos, lifestyle photos, and engagement photos! There’s just so much variety! As a wedding photographer, I love being able find all these cool little nooks in the city that so few people know about! This engagement photo session w/Maureen + Marty is a perfect example!

Chicago Engagement Pictures: Northerly Island

Northerly Island…formerly Meigs Field, is a stark reminder of Mayor Daley. It was controversial how he tore up Meigs field in the middle of the night. But politics aside…Northerly Island is a great place to have a picnic or to take a beautiful stroll on a gorgeous day. It’s one of Chicago’s better kept secrets. The view of the Chicago Skyline is pretty epic. I hope you enjoy their engagement pictures!

We started off w/a nice casual look w/Lake Michigan in the background

Maureen + Marty are so much fun together and they were continually smiling in all their pictures!

Lake Michigan actually looks kind of nice in this picture. =) I love the serene feeling this picture evokes. A sense of peace.

A pictures standing in the rubble of what was once a runway. The remnants of Meigs Field.

They can’t wait to be married! And then they can be in the same state together!

Love this engagement picture!

Chicago is famous for it’s skyline. So many wedding photographers take the SAME Chicago Skyline shots over…and over…and over. I’ll admit that I have taken the cliche pictures too…but I love to come up with something unique and creative. Like this picture! I love it!

Maureen is so light that Marty was twirling her around for a few minutes!

Love their smiles! And the iconic Chicago Skyline in the background!

Thanks Maureen + Marty for a great time together! And thanks for being willing to come out to Northerly Island! It think it was worth it! Goodtimes! And Marty- eat some Pappy’s ribs for me down there in St. Louis!

Can’t wait til October!
