Chicago. World renown for its bold architecture and a skyline punctuated by skyscrapers, Chicago is an amazing city. Ivonne and George engagement session was my first time to Chicago. It won’t be the last.
I stayed right in the middle of downtown, it what’s called the loop, at the Central Loop Hotel. Nice. Comfortable and close to everything. It was December so we were hoping that the temperature wouldn’t be too cold. Luckily it warmed up to 46 degrees both days of shooting from 24 degrees that greeted me when I arrived in the city.
One of the things attracted me to do the session at Chicago was its incredible architecture and that the city is an active and vibrant artistic center for music, theatre, architecture, and culture. Chicago is a city with character and personality.
My inspiration for the sessions was Gotham city and elegance. We carefully planned what areas we would use, like the famous Union Station – remember the movie The Untouchables”? – The Chicago Stock Exchange, The Chicago Cultural Center and the Millenium Park.
Here are some of my favorite images from the Chicago Engagement Session of Ivonne and George.
