With a shared love for bike rides, trips to the Lincoln Park Zoo, and strolls along Chicago’s lakefront we can see how Kendra + Alexander fit together like two puzzle pieces. On the day of their shoot these two stayed calm + collected as a bit of rain tried (but did not succeed!) to dampen our shoot. Instead, we decided to retreat within the urban oasis that is the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Ever been? If not, it’s lush leaves and sprawling gardens will keep you coming back time and again. For our next stop, and just a stones throw from the Conservatory, is the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool. With it’s serene mini waterfalls and vibrant flowering trees we seriously had a hard time leaving afterwards! Whether it’s to take in a moment of calm with the person you love, or a quick jaunt for your engagement shoot, either of these locations will leave a permanent + fond stamp on your heart.
