Chicago Engagement Photos

I cannot decide where to get them done! Does anyone have any ideas? For the wedding, they are going to be done in Millenium park and buckingham fountain...so does anyone else have any other ideas? Thanks

    Here are some options based on what type of scenery you want:

    Green, Foliage, Nature: Garfield Park Conservatory, Lincoln Park Conservatory, Cantigny Park

    City, Urban: Walking around downtown, Museum of Contemporary Art or Art Institute and Modern Wing, Cultural Center, Lasalle under the El, North Ave Beach (nice skyline shots), Financial District, there are some cool views of the city from South of the Loop also.  

    It really depends on what you guys want as a couple.  We chose more urban locations but I think the parks might be nice

    We did more around the city pictures, because we live downtown and love the urban look. My pics are at briankinyon.smugmug.com if you want to check out where we went. Stephanie and Brandon near the bottom.

    If you already have a photographer, do they have a blog? I think that's the best way to get ideas because you can see how your photog photographed other couples in various locations and pick from there.

    If not, our photographer does a great job of blogging around the city: www.karaschultz.com
