Patience is a Virtue! Gorgeous eSession Pictures w/Linda + Ben!

Chicago Engagement Photos

Sometimes good things come to those who wait. =) In Linda + Ben’s case…that meant…rescheduling their engagement session four times! But it was worth it! The weather could not have been anymore perfect! As a Chicago wedding photographer, I have to be flexible and willing to shoot in all types of weather conditions and I was thankful for the cool & sunny weather that we enjoyed at the end of July! Linda + Ben had almost given up hope that we would be able to take photos before their wedding, but we were able to head out to various Chicago locations for their photoshoot!

North Avenue Beach – Chicago Skyline

As their photographer, I listened to their wants and desires and we settled on North Avenue Beach for their Chicago skyline pictures! The Chicago skyline was perfectly balanced w/a blue sky and gorgeous clouds!

I found some sun flare poking through the clouds and wanted a photo with it!

I’m loving this beautiful Chicago skyline photo – Linda + Ben almost look like they are walking in the sky!

Downtown Chicago at Night

We stopped by their condo for an outfit change to continue their engagement session at night! I love the challenge and fun of photographing couples at night. It is so technically challenging, but the rewards are worth it! It make my job as a Chicago engagement photographer all the more enjoyable!
