do you want to do them downtown Chicago or a suburb? I did mine at st James forest preseve, I loves it there. it’s in warrenville. Also in oak brook there’s a place calles old graue mill. It’s really pretty there, the pics on the websiare doesn’t give it justice. Also in warrenville there’s a place called cantigny that is awesome as well. all those places are about 45 min away from downtown

@ValerieBee03:  We did some at Oak Street Beach and also in a little area across from the Drake Hotel (where we got engaged) that has some grass and a gazebo. They turned out amazing! You can get a ton of different “looks” around that area (beach, skyline) so that’s why we chose it.

We did ours at Wrigley Field, on one of the many bridges over the Chicago River and inside a really cool lighting store called Lightology.

For our wedding photos, we went to the beach that juts out to the North of Navy Pier– we got great beach, lake and skyline photos, as well as pictures with the ferris wheel in the background.

Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood is my favorite spot to do engagement photos. It’s urban and edgy.  I tended to wanted to avoid the touristy super common areas like Millennium Park, Wrigley Field, the museum campus etc.  There are always a million people there.
