Ahhh, these two. I met Wesley through his younger brother will and then became friends, well, the whole family. I did his sister's engagement pictures and got to attend the wedding as a guest (woohoo! all my wedding vendor friends know how exciting that is when you're invited to a wedding as a guest), and I'm lucky enough to get to both attend and shoot Wes + Bea's wedding in Chicago this August.

I've gotten to know both of them slowly over the past few months and it's been so fun to learn more about them.

Bea suggested Montrose Harbor for their sunrise engagement pictures in Chicago, and boy was it refreshing!

As much as I love a good cityscape, as do most people who want sunrise engagement pictures in Chicago, it's nice to break up the buildings with some beautiful greenery and a view of the lake + harbor. Their outfits were the perfect colors for this location, and I'm that much more excited to shoot their big day in just a few short months!!

They're cute...right?!

Even though we didn't have much of a sun at these sunrise engagement pictures in Chicago, the overcast still provided perfect lighting to get some beautiful colors of the green trees and blue Lake Michigan.
