Kaitlyn and John’s Wicker Park engagement session was dreamy, eventful, and nostalgic, to say the least! Ever since our first conversation, we had a pretty solid game plan for what the evening would entail. These two met while playing softball in Lincoln Park, and their first date was soon to follow. The date sounded so awesome, we had to recreate it for engagement photos!
“It was the best first date ever- beer, the 606, a funky used bookstore, a park, and tacos (and flowed together beautifully for all the excitement!). It was the best night of my life- that is until the night he proposed!”
We started our session at the infamous Robin Williams mural outside of Concord Music Hall on Milwaukee Avenue. Kaitlyn and John actually lived near this mural while it was being painted – and I’m so excited they wanted photos here! Did you know Robin Williams was from Chicago?! I had no idea… gonna blame that one on my Wisconsin heritage. Hah!
After some time with the Genie, we headed over to Wicker Park for photos with the fountain and spring tulips (Kaitlyn’s fave!). We strolled over to Big Star for margaritas and their adorable heart wall. Shout out to the staff for letting us take a few photos on the patio! Our next stop was Myopic, of course – is there another “funky used bookstore” in Wicker Park? – and then headed to the 606 just in time for sunset 🙂 Kaitlyn and John were so adorable together, they even got applause from random passersby on the street! Now THAT is how you know you rocked your engagement session!!
Kaitlyn and John: I had so much fun at your Wicker Park engagement session! Can’t wait for wedding day this fall!
