Romantic Lake Michigan Engagement


This fairytale of an evening at Montrose Harbor, Beach and Bird Sanctuary with Dane and Lindsey will go down as one of my favorite color palettes and styled engagement sessions EVER. Between Lake Michigan's perfect aqua blue, Lindsey's positively pink skirt, Dane's Italian tan and the summer green only found in the Midwest - this session was a home run before I even picked up my cameras. These two followed their own paths to Chicago (him by way of Ohio, her via Michigan) and as fate had it, met several years ago. Their relationship quickly deepened and strengthened, leading Dane to surprise Lindsey last winter with a sparkly stunner of a present under the Christmas tree- complete with THE question. For her, there was no question, and this bride- and groom-to-be started planning their wedding for next summer!

Since their getaway wedding plans include a destination, Lindsey and Dane wanted to celebrate Chicago and the love they both have for this beautiful city they both have come to call home. As someone else who moved to Chicago and fell in love with this city as an adult, I was thrilled. So without further words, check out this golden couple's gorgeous engagement photos, complete with beach, meadow, sunset over the city and perfectly romantic moonlit skyline photos. YAY!!
