This week is just full of adorable engaged couples! It seems to be an AWESOME trend that we’ve had quite a few couples recently who want to do their photos along Lake Michigan. From Kenosha, to Milwaukee to Chicago, the lakefront has been a beautiful theme among them and we absolutely love it!!!
We met McKenna and Brandon for the first time via Skype back in October. They were telling us all about the amazing wedding they’re planning at Eagle Ridge in July. It’s going to be incredible! Through that conversation we also found out that they’re fans of rival teams just like Jeff and I are, and that McKenna also has a brother with Down’s Syndrome just like I do. We absolutely fell in love with them and are so excited to be getting to know them and their families over the next several months!
To start their engagement photos, McKenna and Brandon wanted to meet along the lake in Evanston. They brought their adorable dog, Oakley, with them and we had so much fun with the three of them!
After McKenna’s dad took Oakley back to the house so he could rest up from being the star of the show, we spent some more time just walking around the Lighthouse Beach area. It is such a versatile beach and we found some great places!
Next, we all made the drive down to Lincoln Park to finish the session. Lincoln Park is one of our favorite places to shoot in Chicago because of the wide variety of shooting locations there are. It’s usually packed with people, but if you look around hard enough you can find some places most people aren’t going to and make great use of them.
McKenna and Brandon, we cannot wait for your wedding later this year!!! It’s going to be so much fun!!!
