Maeve & Erik chose Lincoln Park for their engagement photographs to celebrate one of their favorite Chicago neighborhoods. As a photographer who loves golden hour sunset sessions as much as the next gal, I loved their idea to incorporate some of the lovely natural elements, classic Chicago architecture and gorgeous Lake Michigan.
We started our walk just west of the Lincoln Park Zoo and meandered through the parks, talking about their winter wedding plans and enjoying one of Chicago's most beautiful summer evenings. A quick outfit change later, we headed to North Avenue Beach to catch the skyline at sunset as the city lights mixed with the deepening twilight. A wind off the water provided a lovely movement complementing the texture and colors of the film in this engagement session. Be sure to catch a view of the Hancock building in many of the photographs as well as Maeve's stunning Art Deco-inspired custom engagement ring.
These fine art engagement photographs were shot on Kodak Portra 400 film processed by the super team at PhotoVision film lab in Salem, OR.
