I got to spend some time with my friends Mitwa & Kunal and their “entourage” around Chicago and took some memorable pictures celebrating their engagement. It was also a great time to reminisce about our first encounter two years ago as they celebrated Pinky & Donny’s Wedding. Our ride to the city was filled with conversations about the fun and amazement we experienced during that four-day celebration.
The city was bright and lively as usual. After some daring attempts to find open parking spaces, we eventually made it to Olive Park, a common destination for skyline pictures of Chicago. The sun still hung high in the sky, backlighting the couple as they posed and creating the gorgeous flare you see above. Our journey continued with several outfit changes and stops around the city including a traditional outfit for Mitwa at Calder’s Flamingo where beautifully curved lines juxtaposed against the surrounding architecture highlighted the couple underneath. I was able to let the couple interact and step back for some interesting long-angle shots. After this, Mitwa stunned in a very classy asymmetrical skirt and continued to interact with Kunal with such ease in front of the camera. We had a fun and relaxed time together, with the couple connecting together and interacting very naturally as we visited Lincoln Park before ending up on the lakeshore for night time shots. Enjoy!
