Jennifer and Brian’s Humboldt Park Chicago Engagement Session

Jennifer and Brian’s Humboldt Park Chicago Summer Engagement Session! I met up with Jennifer and Brian at their apartment in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago for a summer afternoon engagement portrait shoot. They wanted some cute fun ideas which included some photos with their pet dog, a beautiful Rhodesian ridge back, and a picnic in the park!

I love this image of them sitting for a picnic under a large oak tree on a small hill in Humboldt Park. I used the tree’s branches to frame the top of the picture.

I tried some artistic framing shooting through the metal circular wall grate to capture a candid image of them on the L train platform.

The modern metal chrome stairway at the newly remodeled California Green line L stop made for a beautiful frame for some of their engagement portraits.
