Capturing Love and Skyline: A North Avenue Beach Engagement

Hey there, lovely souls! Today, I’m thrilled to share a heartwarming journey that took me from the cozy streets of Grand Rapids to the vibrant shores of Chicago. Picture this: a dreamy engagement session with Becky and Mark, two souls deeply in love with each other, and the Windy City’s charm.

As a wedding photographer based in Grand Rapids, embarking on adventures is part of the gig, and let me tell you, Chicago holds a special place in my heart. It’s a city pulsating with life, diversity, and endless photographic possibilities. When Becky and Mark chose North Avenue Beach for their engagement session, my excitement knew no bounds!

You see, North Avenue Beach isn’t just any beach—it’s a canvas where urban meets serenity, where the iconic Chicago skyline kisses the horizon. For couples like Becky and Mark, who breathe in the city’s essence, it’s the perfect backdrop to freeze their love in time.

Becky and Mark, who are gearing up to tie the knot at the enchanting Mesón Sabika in Naperville, knew they wanted a slice of the Chicago skyline in their love story. And oh, what a joy it was to witness their playful chemistry against the backdrop of skyscrapers and endless possibilities!

Speaking of Becky and Mark, let me tell you, they radiate pure joy and infectious energy. From the moment we started clicking away to the last rays of the sunset, their laughter filled the air, and their love painted every frame with warmth and authenticity. Capturing their love was not just a job; it was a privilege, a moment frozen in time that I’ll cherish forever.
