Alyssa + Nick ~ Sydney Marovitz Golf Course & North Avenue Beach Engagement ~ Chicago Engagement Photography

This busy season is calling for some serious patience on my part! I’ve been so busy shooting away and am doing my best to share my sessions on the blog in the order they are shot as I finish editing them – which means sometimes I have to wait a week or two to post. Needless to say – I’ve been itching to share this engagement session with you guys since the night I shot it a couple weeks ago!

Nick and Alyssa are getting married this August in Chicago and I seriously cannot wait for their big day! They were referred to me by Katie & Shaan, so I knew I would love them from the moment I met them – and they did not disappoint! 😉 I had so much fun with them on their engagement session and cannot thank them enough for sticking it out with me on North Avenue Beach as I insisted on shooting a *few* more frames (more like 30-40 more frames) as the sun was setting, even though poor Alyssa was freezing!

Aren’t these two so adorable together?!


Gorgeous Alyssa!!


Can’t wait for their wedding in a couple months!! 🙂
