Katherine & Jonathan Humboldt Park Engagement Portrait Session

Katherine & Jonathan decided to shoot their engagement portrait session in Humboldt Park a western neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois. I met up with the couple at their condo in Humboldt Park on a sunny summer weekend afternoon, where they wanted a couple of photos with their pet cat too!

We then went onto the park of Humboldt Park where I used the iconic boat house, lake, ponds, and trellis garden areas as backdrops of their photojournalist style engagement photos. Oh and they are avid soccer fans so we took a few cute photos of them kicking a soccer ball around too!

I love landscapes photos so I incorporated the pond in Humboldt Park with the wooden pier with the engaged couple holding hands waling towards the camera and made it a black and white image for a more documentary or photojournalism feel.

It was a bright sunny summer afternoon so this garden spot with a stone and wooden overhead trellis was perfect for a shady area for some of their engagement photos.

I love to use architecture to frame the background on wider environmental photos. The half domes at the Humboldt Park boat house were perfect!
