Lincoln Park & Oak Street Beach Engagement Photography | James & Andi

They met in 2014 while working at their church's summer camp, and according to Andi, everyone knew the liked each other but them. A few months later, they were on their first date at Lincoln Park Zoo and Oak Street Beach in Chicago. It's been just about two years since their first date, and now they're planning their wedding for next June!!

Since James and Andi had their first date at the zoo, AND James proposed on the South Pond bridge, it only made sense for us to do their engagement photos there, as well as at the beach. It really couldn't have been a better day! It wasn't too hot for summer in the city, and there were storms on all sides that gave us some beautiful skies throughout the entire evening.

Confession: I had never been to a Chicago beach during sunset before this session. I was surprised at how peaceful it was! Also, it was pretty darn romantic.
