Photographing Engagement Sessions is one of my favorite opportunities to connect with my couples. We meet moments before the sun crests the horizon. This is an incredible time to be in Chicago The city feels like it’s only you and your love awake at that hour. Standing on the shores of a city of nearly 3 million people and listening to the waves roll in while watching the first rays of sun bounce off the gleaming skyline is an incredibly special sensation.
I tend to favor sunrise session in the city and sunset sessions in the suburbs. The sun sets behind the skyline and I find that the many of the most requested locations I tend to capture sessions is along Chicago’s lakefront so I recommend if you’re considering an Engagement Session in Chicago that we plan to capture a sunrise session. Sunrise sessions in Chicago afford us the opportunity to park more easily at various locations and limit the amount of pedestrians in the background of our photos.
I invite you to view some of my favorite sessions from both sunrise and sunset in both the city and suburbs.
