Chicago Engagement Photographer: Victoria & Scott!
Being based in Milwaukee, it’s a special treat when we get to morph into a Chicago engagement photographer for an afternoon. Victoria and Scott will be getting married in Milwaukee next year, but Chicago is their home and they couldn’t imagine having an engagement session anywhere else. Victoria and Scott initially reached out to us through the Dynamic Events by David Caruso team about their Hales Corners wedding. One of the first points they clarified was confirming that we were willing to be their Chicago engagement photographer. Of course we were! This business has taken us around the world and we love any opportunity to explore the downtown Chicago area for awesome light and architecture.
We are all about telling the story of a couple. For Victoria and Scott, their story would not be complete without representing Chicago. For us, that meant finding a blend of the urban landscape that surrounded us as well finding the pockets of nature Chicago has built into it’s downtown scene. The other key to this shoot was timing. We started in late afternoon with the beautiful light and shot all the way into dusk when downtown Chicago really starts to glow. Of course, being blessed with amazing weather on a November day sure didn’t hurt either!
We had a blast exploring Chicago with Victoria and Scott. We can’t wait for the epic wedding they are planning next July!
There is something so stark about this image it’s hard not to just stare at it for awhile! It feels like those shrubs just go on forever creating a private space for Victoria and Scott.
These reflection are such a magical way of blending the urban with the nature! Discovering opportunities like this in the middle of the shoot is what we live for and what makes our photos so dynamic and fresh!
