Sunrise Chicago Engagement Photos // Skyline + Adler Planetarium

Sunrise Engagement Photos at the Adler Planetarium

It’s hard to believe that after ten years as a Chicago engagement photographer, these were my first sunrise engagement photos! Is there a better place to catch a Chicago sunrise than at the Adler Planetarium? It is a truly magical experience to watch the sunrise over the horizon!  Chase + Jason were so great to work with in capturing these epic Chicago sunrise pictures! Be sure to check back soon to see more photos from their session at Millennium Park and the Chicago Riverwalk!

As a photographer, I have a thing for sunrises and sunsets. Whenever I travel I make it a point to enjoy them whenever I can! The window for the perfect moment is so small when taking photos of sunrises and these two were down for anything and everything to maximize their sunrise!

This was one of the first photos we took together, a pre-sunrise moment with the Chicago skyline in the background!

Each sunrise photo has a different feel…a different vibe! As a photographer, it’s hard to pick the best ones!
