Chicago Skyline & Train Engagement Photography

Karly and Will Engagement Session

I always know I have the best clients when they say YES to doing a weekday sunrise session!

Why are we crazy enough to get up at 5 AM in the middle of summer on a Monday morning (okay I am a little late writing this blog, so I am not exactly sure what day of the week it was, but let’s just say…) for a shoot??  Because living in a huge city like Chicago or NYC, the city is still asleep and we are able to get the prime shots, in the summer, on a gorgeous 90 degree morning ALL TO OURSELVES!!  On top of that, the sun and the light looks absolutely beautiful right at sunrise (or right at sunset); that’s why the photos from this session are full of all that amazing, epic lighting!  That back-lit golden-hour-look simply can’t be duplicated in the middle of the day!!

We started their engagement session at the awesome North Ave Beach for the amazing city views, watched the sunrise a little bit and started sweating from the heat!  After hanging out and running around on the beach for a little bit, we grabbed an Uber and did one of my fav things, took engagement photos on the El (the Chicago Subway System)!  We headed to the Brownline, my favorite train in Chicago (above ground, so good light for photos!!) and took the cutest pics ever, both on the train and at the stop waiting for a train to come!  Karly and Will were naturals, letting me shoot pics of them cuddling on the train while the earliest of risers headed to their destinations. 

We took the train downtown and got off by the riverwalk, at JUST the perfect time for some gorgeous golden hour light and to get some shots on the bridge before the traffic built up downtown.  I am SO excited for their Arts Institute wedding next June!!  It is such an epic Chicago wedding venue and Karly and Will are just the cutest!
