Chicago Botanic Garden Engagement Photos

Elona and Andy have set the date for October 25, 2019. I first met Elona and Andy when I captured their proposal at the County Line Orchard in the midst of a sunflower field, so I was thrilled when they chose me to be their wedding photographer.

The Chicago Botanic Garden is such an amazing spot for engagement photos. Located in Glencoe, IL, there is no shortage of hidden gems throughout the many acres of landscaped gardens. From the Japanese Garden to the landscape and circle gardens, there are so many favorite spots to choose from. The greenhouse also offers a nice indoor option if the weather is being difficult, which we thought was going to be the case during this session. Mother nature turned out to be on our side though!

Andy and Elona met through mutual friends. Elona’s cousin is Andy’s best friend and the two were introduced to each other at a social gathering. Their relationship is special because of the strong bond the two share. It started as friendship and grew into something much more over the years. Congratulations Elona and Andy! I cannot wait for your wedding this fall!

    I am looking to propose to my girlfriend at the Chicago Botanic Garden on Friday, August 27th of this year. I was curious if you do this type of work, if you were available this day, what packages and pricing look like and any additional information you would like to share!

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Best regards,
