Becca & Ryan’s Lincoln Park Engagement Session | TWA Photographic Artists | Chicago Wedding Photographers
Becca and Ryan are already married now (as of this April, congrats!) but we’re still hooked on their engagement photos from even earlier this year! March may not be the prettiest month in the Chicagoland area but Becca and Ryan totally made it work for them. They smartly chose the perfect spring outfits to complement their surroundings and ambiance in Lincoln Park, Chicago. The subtle colors of Becca’s flowy dress complemented the almost dreary season nicely. Both she and Ryan looked comfortable and chic during their outdoor photo session! Their photos remind us how amazing it is to be able to photograph so many different styles and visions, during any time of the year. We’re lucky to have such great couples that want to take photos in any weather- no thunderstorms though please!
Lincoln Park is one of our most popular locations for city engagement photo sessions. Not only are you able to view some great cityscape skylines with iconic Chicago towers in the background, but there’s also plenty of gardens, sculptures, and more natural settings within the Nature Boardwalk. It’s a great location to get the best of both worlds!
Nature Boardwalk, once a simple manmade pond, is now a lush, natural, prairie-style garden filled with native plants and brimming with birds, frogs, fish, turtles, insects, and other wildlife. Lincoln Park Zoo manages this fully functioning ecosystem, completed in the summer of 2010, by removing invasive species and conducting an annual floristic survey, which allows Horticulture staff to optimize plant diversity.
Nature Boardwalk acts as a living laboratory for the Urban Wildlife Institute. Here, scientists test field research methods and trial techniques for resolving human-wildlife conflict before deploying them more broadly. Since the completion of Nature Boardwalk, scientists have monitored wildlife, ranging from dragonflies to coyotes, in an effort to understand how animals are benefiting from this urban oasis. Through observation and interpretive signage, guests can learn first-hand about UWI’s research efforts and about the diverse urban ecosystem present in the heart of Chicago.
Our Chicago wedding photographers loved photographing this sweet couple and had a blast capturing their love at their wedding as well. We wish Becca and Ryan a wonderful journey together!
