Chicago Engagement Photos | A Toast to Forever: Dreamy Champagne Beach Picnic

Couple has beach picnic with champagne glasses to celebrate their Engagement in Chicago

Toast to forever amidst the breathtaking beauty of Chicago's sandy shores. Picture this: crystal-clear waters, a gentle sea breeze, and the sun setting in a blaze of colors as you celebrate your love. This intimate lakeshore was the perfect setting for Lauren and Kyle's Engagement Session. As they strolled hand in hand along the shoreline, the sound of the waves gently crashing across the sand, and the soft golden glow from the setting sun created an ambiance of romance for this sweet and romantic champagne picnic.

The Benefits of Having Engagement Photos taken by Your Chicago Wedding Photographer:

Having an engagement photoshoot offers numerous benefits that go beyond capturing beautiful photographs. For starters, it provides an opportunity for you and your partner to get comfortable in front of the camera before it's time for your wedding day! I also believe in telling your story and truly capturing this chapter in your journey together, which in my opinion, extends beyond just your wedding day! This is an opportunity for us to show off your personality and create an experience that embodies who you two are and what you enjoy doing (and it's the perfect excuse for a date night). All of my wedding photography packages include a complimentary engagement session for this exact reason, Additionally, engagement photos can be used for save-the-date cards, wedding invitations, and as decor during your wedding reception. They are a wonderful way to celebrate your love and share your excitement with friends and family.

Planning Your Chicago Engagement Photoshoot: Choosing the Location, Styling, and Posing

From choosing the perfect location, to styling outfits and props, I love to help couples create the perfect scene to show off their love during their engagement session! Planning an engagement session is all about curating an experience for you two to have fun, focus on each other and just enjoy this chapter in your lives together! Chicago offers so many beautiful locations for your engagement session- from sandy shores, blue waters, and incredible skylines there's plenty of romantic backdrops to set the scene for a fun experience that shows off your love. Once we have the location set, then we can start to get creative and bring your dream date night to life by piecing together props. Lauren and Kyle chose to have a champagne picnic on the beach because that's where they feel the most like themselves. The cozy blanket, adorable basket, and customized champagne bottle tied together their vision perfectly. Choosing outfits is the next step in bringing your session to life! I send all of my clients a styling guide and sometimes we even create a custom color palette and select outfits together. And the final piece of the puzzle is posing. I come prepared to every session with a variety of poses and prompts to help you feel comfortable, confident, and totally yourselves. My goal is to have you two focus on each other and just have fun.
