Busse Forest Elk Pasture

Busse forest Elk Pasture 

If you’re one for natural settings, then Busse Forest Elk Pasture in Chicago is the perfect location for your Chicago engagement photography

Located in the outskirts of Chicago, the Ned Brown Preserve – commonly known as Busse Woods offers a variety of landscapes and options – providing stunning backdrops and picturesque scenery. Complete with a 460-acre lake, the forest is definitely one for the books (read: photo albums)! 

The Busse Forest Paved Trail is an eight-mile-long pathway looping through a variety of terrain, from sunny meadows along the lakeshore to the pleasant shade of huge, aged trees. You can opt for boating along the lake, or simple pose along the shore. Go deep into the woods or get bicycles as props. The possibilities for truly amazing photographs are limitless at the Busse Forest! 

Boasting tall red oaks, hickories, maple, ash, and elms, the grand trees are just right for some nature-inspired romance. Perfect for resting with your one and only in your arms while your Chicago engagement photographer captures those moments. 

However, the highlight of the forest is the Elk Pasture. Yes, you read that right, Elks! On the east side of the preserve, a small herd of elks inhabits an enclosed pasture. They are friendly creatures that would definitely love to make a cameo in your engagement photos. If you’re one for wildlife, it's the perfect photo-bomb! 

The options Busse Forest offers are bound only by the imagination! Be adventurous and make some beautiful memories for your Chicago engagement photographer to capture!
