Burnham Harbor South Chicago Engagement: Summer + Joe

When they were introduced several years back, Summer remembers a visible spark.  Granted it was a celebratory day full of spirits and cocktails, while she celebrated her 21st Birthday.  Shortly after and excited to go on their first date, she was skeptically hopeful the same connection would be there.  After a first, second and a third date of easy conversation, so much in common, and Joe keeping a smile on Summer’s face; she introduced him to her family as her boyfriend at a family wedding.  Romantic dinners in the city, laid back dates at home, and friendship that led to love is the story they get to tell for generations to come.

Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful pair at Burnham Harbor in Chicago!  The summer evening had magical light, and their love shines bright through all of it.  I am so excited to capture their Wedding next month, and I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from their engagement session!


Summer has the most beautiful, and contagious laugh!

Oh, and when I grow up… I want Summer’s hair.

Magical love and light!

I may be biased, but I adore 3 stone engagement rings <3

We decided to end their session, at Burnham Harbor…


I will end with this picture because I think it sums their love up perfect!
