The "honeycomb" at the Lincoln Park Nature Boardwalk is one of the most popular spots for couples pictures in Chicago, and Cynthia and Matt made it look that much better.
After considering a few places for their sunset engagement pictures, they decided on heading up to Lincoln Park and getting some iconic Chicago pictures with the Honeycomb. Our timing was a little shorter than planned due to some unexpected traffic during protests in the Loop, but we made the most of our shortened time and got the last glimmers of sunset, even if we had to keep moving and chase that light around Lincoln Park.
Hearing about their wedding plans for their City Winery wedding next summer made me so excited, and getting to know more about them and their story of how they met and fell in love was even better...a casual night at the bar and bumping into each other was all it took for these two to end up getting married one day.

Besides the Honeycomb, there are some beautiful gardens that glow during sunset throughout Lincoln Park.
We were definitely moving around the park a bit to chase the light and catch as much of sunset as we could, and this tiny little garden in the center of Lincoln Park was the perfect, romantic and secluded spot for some engagement pictures in Chicago. I love all the colors, the sunset, and how freaking happy these two look together.
Engagement pictures are a must in my book, not only because you get to know your photographer before the wedding day, but also (and arguably more importantly) because you get to just enjoy the engagement period and celebrate together! It's a step back from planning and a moment to just soak up all the congratulations once you share more pictures.
We made sure to squeeze in a quick outfit change to get some more casual engagement pictures in Lincoln Park and have some fun. I'm such a fan of the candid, goofy, natural looking photos, but there's also a spot in my heart for the romantic photos that Cynthia requested.
These two are such a beautiful couple, and Cynthia will be SUCH a beautiful bride next summer! I was glad to meet these two and check off Lincoln Park from my engagement photo bucket list, and there will be so much more goodness to come in just a few short months!!!
