Kim + Tom : North Ave Beach Sunrise Engagement

Sunrise sessions are ridiculously amazing! That about sums it up.  This wasn’t my first one and I PRAY it won’t be the last.  There is something about getting up before anyone else…especially living in a busy city like Chicago…and walking along the beach in those first moments before the sun comes up.

It truly is breathtaking and I was so excited when Kim & Tom agreed to meet me!  They loved the idea of having the beach to themselves and not having anyone be in their pictures.  And I think, after we all met there and saw the sky and the colors, we all soon forgot just how tired we were…I think. 😉

But FOR REAL though!!!


I had way too much fun with the silhouette pictures. 🙂

A walk along the beach with your soon to be spouse as the sun comes up.

This is like something out of a Nicolas Sparks movie! 😉

Tom had that best smile! You two are adorable!

These two were up for anything…including splashing around in the water.

And dancing with a sunrise background…(even without music). 😉

This one just makes me smile. They look so happy! 🙂

The sun came up fast!  And before we knew it, we had LOTS of colors and TONS of gorgeous light to work with.


The city skyline looked pretty cool with the morning sunlight on it!

Such a gorgeous morning with two beautiful people! Thank you Kim & Tom for not only waking up before the rest of the city, but for just being yourselves and having FUN! 😉 I loved this morning and it was so worth it to get up and document.

I can’t wait for your wedding next June!

Until then,
