When it comes to amazing e-session backdrops, Chicago really knows how it’s done.  Think gorgeous sandy beaches, a breathtaking city skyline and parks with towering trees and acres of lush green grass and you are on the right track.  So, traveling to the Windy City for your e-session?  Makes more than perfect sense.  Especially when it also happens to be the place you were engaged AND your favorite city. That’s what we call engagement session magic and you can see every last love-filled moment captured by Ashley Biess in the full gallery.

From Ashley Biess PhotographyAmy and Al flew in from Omaha, Nebraska to celebrate their one year engagement anniversary in their favorite city: Chicago. Last April, Al took Amy by surprise with his Windy City proposal. For their engagement photos, we took in the sights and visited some of the couple’s favorite spots; including the Chicago Theater, the State Street Bridge, and the Water Tower. We ended the session over at the Oak Street Beach, just as the city lights began to glimmer in the distance. Adding in a little surf and sand into the session was a perfect preview for their January, 2014 Puerto Vallarta wedding.
