Lincoln Park Chicago Engagement | Janice & Jeff

Lincoln Park Chicago Engagement

Are you planning to have an engagement photo session in Chicago? If you want stunning skyline views and a breathtaking backdrop that only Chicago can offer, Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan should be at the top of your list! Thankfully, that’s exactly what Janice and Jeff wanted so we made their Lincoln Park Chicago Engagement photos happen!

Located on the north side of Chicago, Lincoln Park is a sprawling urban oasis that is perfect for engagement photos. With over 1,200 acres of greenery, gardens, and trails, there are plenty of options for capturing beautiful photos. And with Lake Michigan in the background, you’ll have a truly memorable setting for your engagement photos.

Janice and Jeff chose this spot because Jeff used to have a boat docked here when they first met. They were familiar with the area and found it had a mix of that relaxed yachting atmosphere mixed with the beauty of that one-of-a-kind Chicago skyline. This is truly the perfect place for locals when you don’t want downtown because only locals really know about this location! If you’re looking for this specific location, you’re looking for Diversey Harbor Yacht Club. Click here to see it!

As the boats were being kissed by gentle waves, and the ducks were making their presence known, Janice & Jeff has me laughing with conversation in-between poses and little kisses. They were naturals in front of the camera and I’m so excited to photograph their wedding day now! They were outshining the view with the way they looked at one another. They truly have one another’s back and want to make sure that their friends and family get to feel that same love on their big day!

I had so much fun meeting them in person, having them pop a champagne bottle, and enjoying the sunshine. They were asking lots of questions and I really enjoyed learning more about their wedding day, where they were having their bachelor and bachelorette parties at, and how they’re really looking forward to having all of their favorite people together in one place to celebrate.

I also want to highlight their outfits because Janice wore the most beautiful light blush pink dress and Jeff dressed in dress pants and a blue button-down shirt. These types of outfits are a perfect formula to always look your best for engagement photos. It typically allows you to wear items that are already in your closet or chose clothing that you will be able to wear again! This is one of the best examples I’ve seen for a couple that looks like they go together without matching! Click here for more examples!

I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to top another Lincoln Park Engagement photo session but I would love to try because I could have photographed these two for hours! Luckily, I’ll be able to do just that on their wedding day at Chevy Chase Country Club next year! Can’t wait!
