Winter Engagement Photos in Chicago!

Chicago Winter Engagement Photos

It’s been a cold winter season here in Chicago…but that doesn’t stop us from taking engagement photos! We were hoping for some snow…but it was just cold out when we took Kate + Jim’s engagement pictures! Here’s one of my favorites that show the Chicago Trump International Hotel & Tower + the Wrigley building in the background!

Trump Chicago Engagement Pictures

Kate + Jim are getting married at the Chicago Trump Tower later on this year…so we decided to take some photos inside of the Trump for their engagement photos! The Trump staff was so accommodating to our last minute request! I love that the Trump is located on the Chicago river so you can get pictures like this!

We took full advantage of the modern Trump decor –

I have to give a shout out to Jim for seeing this shot. Photographed their reflection in a large mirror with a gorgeous chandelier above them-

I love their smiles, the warm sun, and the lines along the back wall-

Winter Chicago Engagement Photos at Night

Though it was ridiculously cold outside…they braved the Chicago elements to get these winter engagement photos! As a photographer, I am so thankful to all my clients and the lengths they go for our photo sessions! The holiday lights in the background are so romantic! I love taking photos of Chicago at night…it adds a completely different vibe to the photos!

We finished up our night session with some photos in a rooftop bar. I love the old school architecture juxtaposed with the modern industrial lightbulb chandelier!

Thanks Kate + Jim for a wonderful engagement session together! Your laughs and playfulness made my job as an engagement photographer all the more easy and enjoyable! And thank you for braving the cold winter Chicago weather! I can’t wait until your wedding at the Trump later this year!

with love,
