La Salle Street Bridge Engagement Wedding Session

Engagement portrait by Bart Galbas

Photographed on the La Salle Street Bridge in downtown Chicago. Built in 1928, the bridge connects Near North Side with the Loop area. It's one of Bart's favorite spots to take his couples for engagement and wedding portraits.  What makes this spot more attractive is its close proximity to Bart's other favorite spots, like Chicago Board of Trade Building, Chicago River Walk 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 Bart's favorite, newest edition, Nikon 70-200mm 2.8E FL ED VR lens on a D4 body. Off camera light was added from the right due to late afternoon hours. Bart took this image handheld which was possible thanks to the newest vibration reduction of the lens.
