Photographed at the Millennium Park in downtown Chicago. Millennium Park opened in 2004 and it allows for amazing portraits with variety of backgrounds. Cityscape backgrounds are also possible. It is one of Bart's favorite spots to take his couples for engagement and wedding portraits and it is in close proximity to Bart's other favorite spots, like the Art Institute of Chicago, Monroe Harbor, Wrigley Building or Chicago Riverwalk.
Engagement session is a big part of the wedding photography coverage. It creates memorable and beautiful images of the couple that can be used, among other things, for the save the date cards and display prints at the wedding. It also serves as a great way of getting to know the photographer who on the other hand will learn about couple's personalities, likes and dislikes. After all, just like the bridal party, the photographer will be with the couple for the majority of their wedding day.
This engagement image was taken with a wide angle lens on a Nikon D4 body. Off camera flash was added from the right to add more dimension, as the natural light was very flat.
