A breakdown of my favorite Chicago engagement session locations and the perfect backdrops to tell your love story at!
I haven’t had a Chicago Riverwalk Engagement Session in quite some time, and boy oh boy did it feel good to be back there! I forgot how stunning the colors can be, the light bouncing off of the buildings bringing them to life, the mix of cold hard steel and the soft light that fills […]
