With the brisk winter air finally arriving here in Chicago, engagement season is in full swing. We adore the winter time because it encompasses every aspect of romance and togetherness from the glittering of lights, to the magic in the air and an overall mood of peace and love. While nearly every corner in Chicago is the perfect place to snap a cute picture, we've narrowed it down to our top five spots for must-have engagement photos.

Water Tower Place

The annual lightening of Michigan Ave. is one of our favorite holiday kick-off celebrations in the city. Not only does the well-known city block become filled with glittering lights and extravagant window displays, but it is also home to the perfect location for those looking to incorporate some shine into their photos.

Kinzie Bridge

Chicago is known for its architecture and what better way to show it off than to head over to the Kinzie Bridge to snap a few shots. This location is perfect for those looking for a modern yet artsy spot - not to mention it looks beautiful when the snow is falling!

Millennium Park

Whether it's ice skating or enjoying the breathtaking views of the city, Millennium Park is absolutely stunning covered in snow and glowing with holiday cheer. This one location has multiple spots that would be gorgeous for engagement photos to showcase your fun-loving selves. 

Chicago Board of Trade

Nothing says Chicago-wedding like standing in the middle of a busy street and celebrating your love for one another! Our favorite "street" location is outside of the Chicago Board of Trade. This location is perfect for those looking to incorporate the more traditional aspects of a city-wedding into their photos. Plus, this spot looks incredible with a light snowfall and the street lamps light up!

Union Station

Looking to escape the cold outside and take your photos inside? Union Station is the place for you! While this location is still decorate for the holidays (not to mention, one of the most elegant places in the city), you'll be able to stay warm and show off more than your trendy winter coats.
