Chicago, IL is a city where you can go a million times, and still find so many new and exciting places to visit! We met Sierra and Kyle in the city on a Tuesday evening, surrounded by hidden gardens and a city backdrop. The lighting could not have been any more perfect for this Chicago engagement session, and it really made all of the colors pop!
We started their engagement session in downtown Chicago around the Art Institute Gardens. These Gardens were amazing and full of so many different colors and textures. Not to mention, it felt like we weren’t even in the city! The beautiful architecture was another bonus, and is always a favorite of mine for engagement sessions. It adds a touch of elegance to every session, and I love the clean background the colors create!
After exploring the gardens in Chicago, we ended their engagement session at North Avenue Beach as the sun was setting. I can’t get enough of the golden hour light here. The sun was setting behind the city, and created the most beautiful glow. We always recommend starting engagement sessions near sunset for this reason!
Sierra also picked out the perfect outfit colors. They matched the beach setting perfectly! Outfits are always the hardest part about engagement sessions, and I always encourage our couples to pick out outfits that match the location! You don’t want to clash with the settings!
Sierra and Kyle have an amazing connection, so Matt and I had an extremely easy time capturing their love! I was in photographer’s heaven the entire time!
