When Jen & Chris asked if we could do their Chicago beach engagement session at Grosse Point Lighthouse, I almost jumped off my office chair with excitement. I have done weddings near there often and always wondered how awesome an engagement session would be. The old buildings are such a beautiful backdrop, and these two only added to the natural beauty with such a relaxed fun attitude. The dunes, tall grass and the quiet beach were stunning as the sun started to set. Jen arrived with blankets and several great ideas making this engagement photo session fun and creative.
It was a little windy on the beach. But thats Chicago haha. We used the wind to keep hair out eyes, so it actually helped us as long as we had Jen & Chris walking of facing the right way on the beach. Thankfully that put the sun behind them and we could light them with a subtle amount of flash from a higher angle for natural looking light
I am sooooo looking forward to their wedding at Sandy Pines in DeMotte next May.
