“Sailor Kissing Nurse” inspired engagement photos by Adler Planetarium, Chicago


Immediately after meeting Antonio and Salma, I knew that the theme of our engagement photos would be inspired by the timeless and classic “Sailor kissing nurse” photo.  We picked the Adler Planetarium as our location because they are out-of-towners and we wanted to capture the city skyline as well as other locations such as the beach, lake and park.  The cloudy weather was absolutely perfect as it acted as a large diffuser in an otherwise very hot and sunny day.  I wish this wonderful couple only the best in their marriage.

Although winter is not the ideal time for wedding and engagement photos for some couples, I had the luck of getting some wonderful people who not only wanted a winter wonderland look, but also got it. Weather actually worked in their favor.  These are just some of my favorite photos and I’d like to thank all the couples for putting up with the cold for these unique photos.

When Rick and Larissa mentioned that their wedding would be at Chevy Chase Country Club, I was excited.  I know from the start that it would be not only a very beautiful wedding, but also very romantic.  Of course, having a wedding party that will do anything the bride says, is very helpful.  Although we’ve photographed outside, on the golf course, after the ceremony, they wanted some nighttime wedding photography, and  they brought sparklers, which ended up being a lot of fun.  And the photos turned up great.  I wish them the best in everything.

Cameron and Elisabeth’s surprise engagement photo shoot at Navy Pier, Chicago Illinois


Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos

Cameron and Elisabeth’s surprise engagement photos were nothing if not utterly exciting.  From having to change locations due to very heavy rain and thunderstorms, to finding just the right location in the last minute and a future fiancee-to-be who was running out of patience, I had my work cut out for me.  But in the end, the moment was truly a surprise for her and the rain slowed down a bit, just enough to propose and enjoy the Navy Pier fireworks.  I wish them the best in their marriage.

For Araceli and Fred’s beautiful spring engagement photo session we decided to really show Chicago.  So we went to Buckingham Fountain, North Avenue Beach (which happens to be one of my favorite spots) and Millennium Park.  Luckily for us, we caught great weather and just the perfect amount of sun.  It’s easy to have fun during work and you photograph such a wonderful couple.  They are just great and I wish them only the best in their marriage.

Shijo and Betsy’s engagement photo session started at the beautiful Cultural Center in Chicago.  Given that outside was extremely cold, they’ve opted for something warmer and very classic.  Eventually, we went outside for a short period of time, and got some photos at the Millennium Park.  Best wishes to this wonderful couple.

Chris and Aleksandra’s wonderful engagement photo session in Chicago, Illinois

At Chris and Aleksandra’s request we tried to cover as much as possible of Chicago, and of course, the Chicago Sign, of Chicago Theater was a must.  Although, the weather was pretty cold, we also decided to go to Lincoln Park, where it’s always beautiful, and picture perfect.  Luckily, Chris suggested we go to the Nature Museum (where I’ve never been) and they have a beautiful butterfly room and exhibit.  We had lots of fun trying to catch and photograph there beautiful insects.  Best wishes to this great couple.

Amy and Matt’s engagement photos at Adler Planetarium, Chicago Illinois

As you can tell, this photoshoot, was done in the summer time, when light and heat really work in our favor.  Amy and Matt decided to have their photos taken at Adler Planetarium, which is an amazing spot, because of all the small and interesting locations within it.  Besides the wonderful Chicago backdrop, there’s also the beach to the south of it, the lake to the east and then the park passed the beach.  This gives every couple a lot of choices and variety in photos, which is exactly what this wonderful couple got.  I’m happy I had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful couple. Best wishes to them!

Kathleen and David wanted to, very much, show Chicago in their engagement photos.  So we started at North Avenue Beach, where we had a great Chicago backdrop, also the lake and beach.  Then, we went to the Michigan/Wacker Bridge, followed by different locations in the area.  We had a great time and some photos even looked very warm and summer-like, although, Chicago in November isn’t quite so.  Congratulations and best wishes!
