Planning photo sessions in the winter is tough in Chicago. You never know if the weather will be on your side and it can change at a moment’s notice. This was definitely the case for Emily and Lou’ s engagement session in Lincoln Park. When we arrived at A New Leaf, it was raining pretty heavily and we weren’t sure if we’d make it to the outdoor portion of the shoot. While we were inside A New Leaf, which is gorgeous by the way, the rain turned into snow!
A New Leaf is definitely a hidden gem in Lincoln Park. They’re a florist, but the location is also an event space. Definitely a place to keep on your radar if you’re planning a wedding or large event!
After we explored A New Leaf, we made our way to Lincoln Park across the street. The snowflakes were huge and covered everything in the park. It looked so pretty! Emily and Lou brought along some champagne and toasted to their new adventure and making memories as an engaged couple!
