Photographed at the Maggie Daley Ice Skating Ribbon in downtown Chicago. This ice skating rink's unique design and modern architecture serves as one of Bart's many spots to take his couples for engagement and wedding portraits. What makes this spot even more attractive is its close proximity to Bart's other favorite spots, like the Chicago River Walk, Wrigley Building and Michigan Avenue.
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 Nikon's 24mm wide angle lens on a D4 body. Due to late afternoon hours little amount of flash was added to fill in couple's faces. Couple was positioned in a spot where overhang lights added a backlight to add dimension to the image.
