The engagement photo session of Roman and Jenny was in a way a meditative experience. Their love was evident in every picture we took, and when they held each other tight, it seemed as the whole world around them went silent. In those brief intimate moments, the shutter clicks of our cameras seemed unnatural and intrusive (thanks Canon for the “silent shutter mode” option) yet their bliss could not be easily distracted and we could capture their happiness through our lenses.
The Lincoln Park and Old Town neighborhoods provided the perfect setting for their engagement pictures. The warm spring afternoon combined with the cool breeze from the lake Michigan made it even more pleasant to photograph two people in love. We walked through historic streets of Old Town dotted with magnificent architecture and then crossed over North Blvd. to Lincoln Park, a crown jewel of the Chicago Park District. This area of the city can be so much more appreciated if explored leisurely on foot. We’ve been there many time on bikes or drove to our favorite city beach on North Ave., but this was the first time we actually walked through the park in complete awe of its beauty. We can’t thank Jenny and Roman enough for sharing that experience with us – allowing us to document their intimate moments and their upcoming wedding in August.
