Chicago Engagement Session | Fulton Market | Chicago Engagement Photographer | Heather Hackney Photography

Let me start off by saying that I am not a wedding photographer. While I love weddings, I just have this overwhelming anxiety about the idea of photographing them.

However, engagements on the other hand feed my soul. I love, love, love photographing engagement sessions. Most of my couples tend to get married in other cities, yet they still wish for a Chicago engagement session because Chicago is the place they call home. So that’s where I come in :).

Following couples around their favorite Chicago spots with my camera is always so much fun. My approach to Chicago engagement sessions is very similar to my approach to family sessions. I love to get know you, encourage you to have fun, get in close and try to forget that I’m there. I also love finding special locations together. For this colorful engagement session we decided to meet in their very own neighborhood - the West Loop, which just happens to be a short walk to The Fulton Market district. I love this area so much. City views, colorful murals and all kinds of texture and architecture surrounding us.

Below are a few of my favorite’s from this amazing urban Chicago engagement session. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
