Elliot and Amanda’s budding romance started all the way back in middle school. Now here we are, years later, creating their city engagement photos in downtown Chicago. It’s crazy how fate brings people into our lives and reminds us to cherish them to the fullest.
City Engagement Photos in Downtown Chicago
For those of you who don’t know, I consider my photography style to lean more towards the documentary-style photography approach. If you want to read more about that, you can read my most recent blog about my photography approach here.
With this approach, it’s all about documenting the in-between moments. The moments that are considered “perfectly imperfect”. For Amanda and Elliot, it was evident that what they were looking for out of their Chicago engagement was to have their photos be as authentic as possible. They wanted to feel all the emotions, and remember every moment as if it just happened.
Walking around the streets of downtown Chicago reminds me of why I love this beautiful city so much. The twinkling lights and the hustle and bustle of people walking to and fro ignited the inspiration for Amanda and Elliot’s engagement session.
The city made the perfect backdrop for Amanda and Elliot’s Chicago engagement session.
We headed to the Chicago Board of Trade which is an iconic landmark here in Chicago. We wandered throughout the city, capturing Amanda and Elliot’s love where it took us. It was a day filled with adventure, love, and celebration and I wouldn’t have asked for anything better.
