Voltaire & Rowena Engagement Shoot Preview

Voltaire & Rowena’s downtown Chicago engagement shoot sneak peek. We started the day out at their high rise condo in the south loop, walked over to a park near their place, then drove around to Chicago’s Grant Park, Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, and finally visited the west loop of downtown Chicago for a more urban feel. Here I was happy to find an urban edgy backdrop near the Metra train overpass bridge along the Chicago River. The texture of the grungy concrete gave a nice contrast to this photo.

Such a fun cute couple! There were a bunch of sweet moments like this one throughout the entire shoot. I loved the lighting at this west loop location in the early evening. The sun was in a perfect position to cast this nice shadow detail from the above wooden trellis along the grungy cement wall. Their colorful outfits really popped against the muted urban backdrop!

Thank guys! It was so much fun working with you around downtown Chicago Illinois and I am looking forward to the wedding this November, between downtown Chicago and the Intercontinental Hotel in the suburb of Rosemont, Ill!
