With the shutdown due to Covid-19, I want to dedicate more time to writing about the photoshoots I have the honoring of shooting for my clients. This post is about Anam and Mohsen! Anam is from Florida and Mohsen is a Chicago native. While the main events of their South Asian wedding were in Orlando, Florida, they had a second wedding reception in Chicago to celebrate. About a year later, in July 2019, Anam contacted us to do another shoot…Let’s say it was more like an anniversary shoot! I’m so glad they reached out again because it was so much fun spending time with them.
For this portrait shoot, we went to Michigan Avenue Bridge and shot near the Wrigley Building. Being July, the tourists and crowds were HUGE. If you plan to have a shoot in downtown Chicago, be aware that dealing with traffic, crowds and parking are a big factor to consider. You need at least two hours for a photoshoot in downtown because you may want to walk to different locations close by.
We only had an hour for this anniversary wedding shoot, so we stayed close to Michigan Avenue Bridge. This is a beautiful location for portraits because of the sweeping views of the Chicago river, and the iconic Chicago architecture. This is a popular wedding portrait location in Chicago so be ready for at least 2-3 large wedding bridal parties waiting in line to be photographed there.
With over ten years of experience capturing sacred moments and an artful intuition for what it takes to get the perfect shot, time and time again, it’s our joy to create evocative, timeless photographs that are as one-of-a-kind as your story.
