About Naperville Riverwalk

Naperville Riverwalk was created back in 1981, to commemorate the 150th birthday of the city. But it looks like it was made for engagement photo sessions. Just look at photographs from Naperville, they look beautiful beyond belief.

The serene DuPage River will hypnotize you, for sure. And the bridges will make you feel like you are staring in a romantic movie. With a happy end, of course.

The gorgeous green lawns look their best in the spring and summer season. But in the fall, everything gets that special magical feeling. You can make simple photographs on the green lawns. Or exciting ones with the dandelion fountain or the clock tower in the background. Or both.

The Naperville Riverwalk has a lot to offer. On one side, there is nature, and on the other, there are stones and brick paths.

If you’ve never been here before, just wait. You’ll want to come here again after you finish your engagement session. You will even want to shoot your wedding day photos here. And if you can arrange that, why not. Talk with Eivan’s wedding photographer and see what they think about it. It is a spectacular location for anything romanticly related. And it’s also a perfect location for wedding photography.

With the variety of interesting places at the Naperville Riverwalk, you can even create beautiful winter engagement photos. We know that Chicago winters can be crazy, but if the temperature is okay you can still make beautiful photos that will look stunning with the snow in the background.

There are some tips that we can give you to help you relax and look good in the final photos. You will be thrilled at the end of your Naperville Riverwalk engagement session.

Here are the tips:

  • Relax – The first and the most important thing you should do is to relax. Once you and your partner are relaxed, everything else will come easy.
  • Make candid poses – If you are new to posing and don’t know how to do it, the best advice we can give you is to act natural. Don’t pose too much, don’t try to look like a supermodel, just be normal and natural.
  • Do something with your arms – The most awkward thing is when the model doesn’t know what to do with their arms. So, the best thing to not look awkward is to know where to put your arms. When you are being photographed with your partner, it’s easy. You can take their hand, hug them, or do something like that. But you can also have a prop with you, like a straw hat, for example.
  • Pick an outstanding outfit – You need to pick an outfit that will stand out in the photographs. The best way to choose a perfect outfit is to do it according to the current season. That being said, if you are having a spring or a summer engagement shoot, you can wear a colorful and breezy dress with an exciting print. And if you are taking fall engagement photos, always choose the colors that go great with the golden brown fall background.

We hope that you will remember these photo shoot ideas once you go for your shoot. They will come in handy, believe us.
