Chicago River Engagement: Kristine & Ben

Sometimes, a fabulous engagement session is about more than just photos of the two of you. Ben & Kristine’s trip to the Chicago River was ALL of the things!

It can be an opportunity for family portraits! Take a look at Kristine & Ben, and their adorable furbaby. Pets are always great for a smile, a laugh, and to help a Gold Grid couple loosen up in front of the camera. It was all smiles at the Chicago River!  After a family stroll, we switched gears to focus on Kristine & Ben. The architecture and green spaces around the Chicago River made for a great mix of city and summer.

It can be the beginning of your modeling portfolios! Kristine & Ben were dressed to impress! We always tell our couples to put comfort first. But also, think of the session as an opportunity to show off! Think of a session as the beginning of a night out together!  In an ideal world, you get to leave your session, smiling and relieved. If dressed in that “snappy casual” way that Ben & Kristine are…you’re ready to go out to your favorite restaurant.

This lovestruck couple told us that their happiest memory is traveling to Finland and getting engaged (jealous!!). “We were in pajamas in a log cabin listening to music with the fireplace going and two glasses of wine.” While we are #swooning over that story, enjoy this engagement session perfection. To quote the wedding classic My Best Friend’s Wedding (which just happens to have a few scenes along the Chicago River), we “Love the bag. Love the shoes. Love everything!”
