Downtown Chicago Elopement Photography ~ Chicago Midnight Elopement

I absolutely LOVE shooting elopements, so I was already excited to get this fabulous inquiry from an amazing couple. Then they mentioned they wanted to get married at the stroke of midnight in downtown Chicago after having a quiet dinner with their family and I was sold! There is just something SO romantic about Chicago at night… the city lights… the quiet… the glow of the city reflecting off the river. It’s pretty magical.

Leading up to this elopement I was beyond excited, and when we found out it was going to be one of the coldest nights of the fall so far – these two were troopers about it and were determined to make it work! They may have froze their way through some of it – but you’d never know!

James and I had the best time with them and LOVE LOVE LOVED getting to shoot something different than our normal daylight shoots! And I now have this NEED to shoot more in the city at night! Who’s in?! 😉

Here are a few of my favorites from this magical midnight elopement!



Congrats a million times over you two!!
