Enchanting Engagement Photo Spots for your Inner Architect
Neat views and intricate details make these locations ideal for proposals or engagement photos. You’re sure to have a stunning “save the date” card with these photo spots!
1. Milton Lee Olive Park
Lake? Check. Hancock Building? Check. Partners for life? Check and check. This little park has it all! The name, Milton Lee Olive Park, may not ring a bell, but its views of the Hancock Building make it an iconic Chicago landmark. The lovely lakeshore and waves crashing on the beach provide a hint of nature in the background of this gorgeous location.
The shadowy streets of Lincoln Park or Logan Square are ideal for capturing those tender moments you’ll cherish forever. If you’re a couple who doesn’t take themselves too seriously, spring for a talented photographer in the area where you met or wish to live someday. Walking along the streets of Chicago holding your favorite person’s hand is such a genuine photo-op! Alexa, play “I want to hold your hand.”
With architect Frank Lloyd Wright involved, it’s no wonder this building is a masterpiece. It’s an unexpected, yet elegant setting to propose or take those wedding glamour shots. In 1888, it was the finest office building in America. And it’s still one of the finest in town for photos with your honey.
4. Buckingham Fountain
Kissing in the rain? Unnecessary and soaking wet. Photos at a fountain? Just the right amount of splash for your engagement shoot! The Buckingham Fountain, famous for its large size and 150-foot water displays each hour, is located in Grant Park. This landmark in the heart of Chicago flows with sparkling water from May to mid-October and is the perfect place to capture a sweet second with bae.
A bold couple may vouch for the city streets rather than grand landscapes, when it comes to their engagement photos. The glimmering downtown lights right around dusk are a whimsical backdrop for an extraordinary occasion. It’s urban chic! If you wish to continue your evening near the river after your engagement shoot, hop aboard Chicago’s First Lady for a Twilight River Cruise!
Take some pictures and cheers to your engagement! Besides being a posh brunch spot and a spectacular wedding venue, LondonHouse is one of the classiest places to take engagement photos in the city. The stunning skyline views are the perfect surroundings for any Chicago-loving couple.
