Fresh & Fun Downtown Oak Park Engagement

It's not hard to see why Frank Lloyd Wright chose Oak Park for his home and studio when the spring weather and blooms are this gorgeous.

When Lauren and Kevin chose to do their spring engagement session at special and sentimental locations in downtown Oak Park, I jumped at the chance. When a couple is planning a destination wedding or even a wedding in another part of the Chicago area, there's no better way to celebrate your hometown or new-hometown than an engagement session highlighting your favorite spots. 

We started at Beer Shop (a new-ish local hangout for craft brew lovers) and wandered around Austin Gardens, the Oak Park Metra station, the Lake Theater enjoying the gorgeous redbuds and bistro lights. Warm wedding weather is here, folks!

This engagement session was shot digitally, but processed to have the natural, soft look of film. I'm excited to see how Lynda at Greenstar Paperie uses these photos for Lauren and Kevin's wedding Save the Dates. Enjoy!
