Mimi is a bridesmaid in another wedding I am shooting this year; I was so excited when she emailed me about capturing some engagement photos here in Chicago for her and her fiance, Decker. They were marrying in Italy, but wanted some photos to capture the city where they met and fell in love. We did a quick one-hour North Avenue Beach engagement session at sunrise. In the summer, I always suggest a sunrise session for couples that wish to go to the lake. If you’ve ever been to the Beach in the evening, you’ll know that it can be a hot mess, with volleyball players, bikers, swimmers, and more. In the morning, though, it has a peaceful, tranquil quality, and the light rising over the lake is so beautiful. I also loved the outfits Mimi and Decker chose! The white and khaki look was a perfect blend for the dreamy, romantic, and editorial feel that Mimi wanted. Enjoy!
