I met up with Amy & Robert in their Lincoln Park neighborhood at Other Side Bar before our engagement session. As I’ve said, I always like to meet up for drinks before we start shooting. It’s a great way to catch up on the wedding plans and relax before we head out.
From there it was a quick walk down Fullerton Avenue toward Lincoln Park. Our first stop was a new one for me – the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool. It’s a little hidden gem with lots of great photo opportunities. After a lap around the lily pool, we walked across the street to the casting pier on North Pond. After that we walked back through the park to Amy & Rob’s home for an outfit change.
When it was time for North Avenue Beach engagement photos my friend, Amanda met up with us there to assist with lighting. With it’s iconic skyline view, North Avenue Beach is among the most popular Chicago engagement photo locations. The city lights in the background and dusk blue sky were a perfect way to finish the evening.
I had a great time hanging out with Amy & Rob and I’m looking forward to seeing them again for their New Year’s Eve wedding this winter!
