There’s nothing like Saturday mornings in summertime Chicago! If you can get past getting up early (it’s tough, I KNOW), Chicago is quiet and beautiful and so peaceful. Last Saturday, I met Alyssa and Jim at the Grant Memorial in Lincoln Park, and the morning was so perfect, so beautiful! We spent some time at the pond and pavilion, walked over to North Avenue Beach, and ended at the Riverwalk and the El tracks!
These two are city lovers, with hearts of gold and a serious love for the people in their lives. Jim is solid, strong, sure of himself, and Alyssa is the definition of a smile — everything she does just makes you laugh. Enjoy the variety in this shoot — we did diffused natural light, harsh full-on sunrise, nature and city, water and sky! I loved spending time with these two, and I’m so excited for their winter wedding in February!
