1. Your favorite bar or restaurant
Where is your favorite place to grab a margarita or craft beer? Is there somewhere with cute outdoor seating that would be perfect for your summer engagement session?
If you and your fiance love burgers, head somewhere where you can chow down on some fries and patties. Nothing tells your love story better than going to one of your favorite restaurant or bar where you get to enjoy your favorite food or drink!
2. Where you first met
Whether it was the campus library, an elevator or the grocery store, it's always fun to go down memory lane!
3. Ice cream shop
You'd probably find my husband and I at Jeni's Icecream on Southport. With our own cones of course, because who shares ice cream anyways?
4. Coffee shop
These sessions are perfect for winter or fall sessions because you can be cozied up in the coffee shop, sipping on your latte or cappuccino.
5. The beach
Beaches are notorious for clean, natural light so are the perfect backdrop for beautiful sunset or sunrise engagement sessions!

Chicago and its surrounding suburbs have soooo many beautiful parks! Matter of fact, even if you're in Nebraska or New York, you probably have some hidden gem parks that would be awesome for your next photo session.

Are you and your boo total city folks who strive off of the hustle and bustle of the city? Try out an engagement session where you hit the town! It's always fun to be dressed up and roaming through the streets, hoping on the L for your next destination in the city.

There’s something so unique and cute about eating corn dogs and cotton candy with your love! Grab a candy apple and hop on the farris wheel for some fun photos.
10. Somewhere meaningful to you
Did you adopt your puppy from the animal shelter and want to document that milestone in your life through your engagement photos? What about the place where the two of you got engaged at?
