Riverwalk + Lincoln Park Engagement // Raquel + Robert!

Chicago Engagement Photos // Riverwalk + Lincoln Park

Raquel + Robert had their engagement session photos taken at the Chicago Riverwalk and the South Pond in Lincoln Park! These two were a little worried/nervous about their engagement pictures (as most couples are!) but after just a few photos, they were able to see how natural and amazing they look! Getting comfortable with a photographer is a huge benefit of shooting engagement photos with your wedding photographer!

I’m a photographer that loves sun flare, so when I see it, I have to shoot it!

This was one of the first photos we took of their engagement session. As an engagement photographer…it’s always a great feeling when the couples loves the first few photos you take! =)

We finished their session at Lincoln Park with a view of the Chicago skyline and some fall colors!

Photographer’s tip: Find unique views of iconic structures! Here the John Hancock screams “Chicago” but this is not a common angle of it!
