Chicago’s Lincoln Park And South Pond Nature Walk Lincoln Park Zoo

On a cool late summer day in September 2020, I traveled to Chicago to do my first traveling engagement shoot. Although they live in Chicago, their wedding will be in Dayton, Ohio. After many changes due to weather and COVID-19, I made my way to Chicago’s Lincoln Park, early one Saturday morning.

Photographing A Couple In Chicago’s Lincoln Park

Our first selected location was the South Pond Nature Walk at Lincoln Park Zoo. We secured the required permit to take engagement photos at the South Pond Nature Walk. We spent one hour photographing various natural habitats around this beautiful lake and park. I didn’t know what to expect from this park. There are photos online but none capture the beauty of this park. My favorite part of this park is the honeycomb art structure that perfectly framed the couple. The parking near this park is very easy but expensive.

This was the most amazing engagement session ever, one of my dreams as a wedding and engagement photographer. Contact me if you would like me to travel for your wedding or engagement. I am also a Dayton Ohio based travel photographer.

“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. He was organized and helpful in planning the locations and flexible when we had to postpone a week due to weather.

My fiancé and I aren’t big picture-takers so we were both a little nervous but Kevin made the whole experience relaxed and enjoyable. And the pictures were stunning! Kevin posed us just enough to ensure we looked our best while still looking and feeling very natural. He not only photographed us beautifully but also captured all the beauty of the parks, lakefront, and city views of Chicago that we were hoping our photos would reflect. We are so happy with our engagement photos and looking forward to being photographed again by Kevin on our big day!” – Amanda H.
