It’s no secret we love Chicago, so naturally we couldn’t resist this Chicago engagement session. We love the very classic look that this bride and groom opted for and you can’t beat the gorgeous backdrop.
My fiance, Kevin, and I were both born and raised in Chicago and knew we wanted the city to be the backdrop for our engagement photos. We lucked out on having beautiful day in May and had a great time shooting with our photographer, Katie Kett. Taking engagement photos served as a great way for us to get to know our wedding photographer and vice versa before our big day.I knew for one of my looks I wanted to embrace bridal tradition and wear white. I opted for a classic white sheath dress with simple gold jewelry. Kevin brought the pop of color in a blue and white gingham shirt. I wanted us to stand out and let our outfits be subtle while complimenting each other. For our second look, I opted for a green fit and flare with a great cut out in the back to add an unexpected twist. Again, I wore minimal jewelry. I often think statement jewelry in engagement photos is all my eye focuses on and bold pieces can look dated after a few years. – Katie, the bride and blogger at Kel & Kate
