Katie & Mike Summer Engagement Photo Shoot at Cantigny Park
We recently spent some time at Cantigny to take their engagement portraits while Mike was in visiting from London (where they met!) Cantigny was the perfect inspirational backdrop to lead up to their wedding next May at Wilder Mansion.
One of my favorite spots to take photographs is on the rod iron cement staircase mansion at Cantigny Park Gardens.
There are so many beautiful landscape options for outdoor nature engagement photos at Cantigny Park.
They had some fun with the military tank sculpture garden at Cantigny.
They wanted a few photos where they each wore each others countries respective favorite sports teams. The Chicago Bears football jersey for Mike and the England national football soccer team for Katie.
When photographing engagement portraits I am always looking for unique backgrounds and where I can ones that highlight the couples personality.
I love how the sun flare back light highlights the wispy high grass field I used as a backdrop at the park for this sweet image.
They’ve officially tied the knot with their wedding and reception Wilder Mansion in Elmhurst, Illinois in a beautiful outdoor English Garden styled ceremony! Check out the full wedding blog post here!
