Mariah + George : Engagement session in Humboldt Park :
“We also have a connection to the Wicker Park, Bucktown, and Logan Square neighborhood.”
This was music to my ears! The last Chicago neighborhood I lived in before we moved out of the city was Logan Square and I always loved exploring the surrounding neighborhoods, especially finding new murals. If you know me, I even have my own mural finding hashtag on instagram – #MURALSFINDLIZ – so getting to actually meet up with a cute couple to take photos in my favorite places was a dream.
Right away, Mariah and George greeted me with the biggest smiles, adorably eager to walk around wherever I thought would make for a good backdrop. We started in Humboldt Park and slowly made our way Northeast through Logan and Wicker Park, incorporating all the favorite spots including the ‘swan pond’ by the Humboldt Park pavilion and the many trails surrounding it, the famous 606 trail, an extremely colorful floral mural wall that I’m still obsessed with, Ipsento Coffee, and finally, Map Room, one of their favorite Chicago bars.
These two were so much fun to photograph and I was honestly sad when we had to stop, but spending an afternoon walking around the city with them made me even more excited for their wedding day.
