Engagement Session At Civic Opera House Chicago Illinois

On a cool late summer day in September 2020, I traveled to Chicago to do my first traveling engagement shoot. This bride and groom (who are awesome) are getting married in Dayton, Ohio but live in Lincoln Park. After so many changes due to the weather and COVID-19, I made my way to Lincoln Park, Chicago, early one Saturday morning. The one thing this couple really wanted was engagement photos at Chicago’s Civic Opera House.

The last stops were my second favorite spots for Chicago engagement photography after Ohio Street Beach. We photographed near Michigan Avenue/Chicago River/Wabash, Wrigley Building, Chicago RiverWalk, Chicago Theatre, bridges over the Chicago River, the “L”, and the Civic Opera House. We were not able to get into the opera house, but we used the exterior. I love the giant columns and the interesting lighting. The leading lines make these photos really stand out. We had such a great time photographing all over downtown for four hours.

What I Love About Engagement Photos At Chicago’s Civic Opera House

I love the way the ornate sign above their heads that frames them nicely. I really just love these photos so much with these columns and leading lines. The time of day was perfect for lighting and shadows. I can’t stop looking at the series of leading lines in the photo. The wall to the right, the columns to the left, the sidewalk crack, and the chandeliers all direct your attention at this awesome couple.

“Kevin is an amazing photographer! My fiancé and I are in a unique situation in that we are getting married in Dayton but live in Chicago. We wanted to have our engagement photos in Chicago and Kevin was more than happy to work with us to make that happen.” – Amanda H.
