Photography for your Engagement
One of the exciting things about becoming engaged is sharing your news with family and friends. An Engagement Session is essential to share the news. Rick Aguilar photographs Engagement Sessions all throughout Chicago. His location Engagement Sessions are fun, creative and easy! Plus, the studio offers a variety of ways to showcase your photography and announce to the world your new engagement.
The Marriage Proposal
Rick Aguilar Studios is honored when we are called for surprise photography at a wedding proposal. And our photographers have captured so many of these moments. Plus, the bride is always amazed that we can pull off such a romantic surprise.
Last fall, our Associate Clare teamed up with our client Kunal to propose to his longtime girlfriend Kendall. With a little pre-planning, Kunal and Clare staged his proposal on Chicago’s famous Riverwalk. The couple met after work to walk their dog, Clare was staged on the steps, using her long lens, and captured the moment Kunal dropped to his knee.
The proposed to is exciting enough. Then, when Kendall was introduced to the photographer on the steps, she received the bonus surprise of having the big moment photographed too. Clare continued the photography session with fun pictures of the couple walking on the riverwalk, on the bridge over the river, and even hopping onto one of Chicago’s water taxis.
The Engagement Session
Location sessions in Chicago are always inspiring. Add Rick’s experience, and you can choose from his favorite locations for photographs. Meet him on-location at the Lincoln Park Zoo, Olive Park by Navy Pier, or North Avenue Beach. Your engagement sessions will feature our iconic Chicago skyline.
We love the Engagement Sessions that show the couple’s personality. Dana and Evan wanted to have their engagement session somewhere unusual. Why not include some of Chicago’s fun graffiti murals? Add in a speakeasy to the session, and that is a true Chicago theme! Rick’s is always up for new and creative ways to photograph couples.
