5 Unique Ways to Tell Your Chicago Love Story

Setting is a significant part of any story of course. It’s all about location, location, location! A skilled Chicago wedding photographer can help inscribe the beginnings of your life together with your City as a backdrop.

1. Get playful

Capture the fun in your relationship. For playful photos of you and your love try something new! Go to a new restaurant or fun, new location to explore. Rent bikes and ride down Lakeshore paths. Play bocce ball at Pinstripes downtown. With the help of your Chicago wedding photographer any of these authentic moments will be ones you will cherish for a lifetime.

2. First date

Think about heading to the bar where you met, that ice cream shop where you had your first date, or your favorite pizza place. Even if the food is forgettable the restaurant is made memorable by being a part of your love story. So, head back to reminisce and revel in the romance of your relationship.

3. Your personal paparazzi

Who would’ve thought walking your dog could be a romantic photo-op!? With your Chicago wedding photographer hiding in the background she can grab these candid moments and make them a treasured work of art! She can capture these day-in-the-life scenes that will forever remind you of how lucky you are to have someone you love to share them with.

4. Embrace Tourism

Chicago ranks number 3 in the nation for tourism, but how often do you take advantage of these popular attractions? When you live in the city you rarely take the time to indulge yourself in the fanfare. Head to Navy Pier to play some games or grab a snow cone at the zoo. No matter how silly it may seem, when you bring along your Chicago wedding photographer the moment will be elevated to one of the best dates you’ve ever been on!

5. Romance of the city

Don’t miss a chance for a picture of you in your wedding attire with the backdrop of the Chicago skyline!  Grab your new spouse and head with your photographer for a few quick snapshots. There’s no better way to punctuate a special day.

Who knows where life will take you? Your story may continue in other cities, but for now, Chicago is yours. It is the backdrop of your lives, almost acting like a character on its own at times. Allow the beauty and the fun of the city you love be reflected in your engagement and wedding photos. Fall back in love with Chicago as you showcase your story’s beginning.
