Buckingham Fountain + Riverwalk, Downtown Chicago Engagement Session // Jill+Andrew

Last week I met Jill and Andrew in downtown at the epic Buckingham Fountain to begin their engagement session.
We had a great time exploring the area and chatting. I love doing engagement sessions with my couples to get to know them and build relationship before their wedding day. We took advantage of the sunset and captured some great shots in the park and by the lake before we made our way over to the Riverwalk downtown. The Chicago Riverwalk is such a romantic place as the sun sets and the lights reflect off of the water. Here are some of my favorite shots of the happy couple, hope you enjoy. – Jay
