Last week we photographed an incredible nighttime session in the city for a couple that met and fell in love in Chicago, but now lives in Georgia and will have their wedding ceremony later on this year in China. We chased the beautiful sapphire blue skies from the beach to Buckingham Fountain and Chicago Theatre! And the images are just amazing. It was a cold, cold May evening, but the sky was absolutely breathtaking! Here is a little sneak peek to the very best images of the session.
We started the session right at sunset on the beach and finished it well into the dark of the evening.
Our second stop was Buckingham Fountain, a downtown spot that I rarely go to. It’s just so busy with tourists, that it never quite works out for the look I always go for. The couple in love alone in the city kind of look. But nighttime is the perfect time for this look as all the people in the background turn to silhouettes that add interest and dimension to the frame, rather than distract attention away from the subject.
Last stop – Chicago Theatre! A first for nighttime portraits, but another great one!
