One of my favorite locations to take engagement photos at in Chicago is North Avenue Beach! Not only do you get gorgeous views of the Chicago skyline, but you also have a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. My favorite time of the day to shoot at North Avenue Beach is sunrise since there are few people around at that time and the lighting is perfect!
For this particular North Avenue Beach engagement session, we made sure to arrive just before the sunrise to catch blue hour AND golden hour. It was absolutely magical to say the least!
