Chicago engagement session – Huu & Vassaly

Every time I get to shoot a Chicago engagement session I get very excited because there are so many great locations to shoot in this city. We started the day early at City Grounds coffee shop in Lincoln Park. I am not a big coffee drinker but having one with a croissant while I was waiting for Vassaly and Huu was such a great start for the day. The sounds of the city, the fresh paper, the smell of coffee – it was just perfect. I guess I miss living in a big city.

Our first stop was the beach which provided a nice view of the city skyline then we walked around the neighborhood, stopping from time to time as I saw a good photo opportunity.

We had lunch at La Creperie – a family own restaurant which serves some amazing crepes. My first time there but I highly recommend it!

The last spot on our list was the Millennium Park. I just love the juxtaposition of the lush, green gardens against the tall buildings in the background.
