Chicago Engagement Session on North Lakeshore by Chicago Wedding Photographer Courtney Rudicel

Chicago, IL — This Chicago engagement session highlights Marissa and Carlo’s love for each other and their city! We started early and took our time exploring some of their favorites spots. I got the full Chicago experience hitting up North Avenue lakeshore area with the stunning backdrop of the city skyline, we got some nature-y park feels with the trees and glowy light, some barefoot beach moments at Oak Street Beach and they also gave me the iconic downtown vibes before we grabbed an Uber back to their place.

These two welcomed me into the city with open arms and treated me as if I was an old friend. I will always cherish that. And the end of the session when I thanked them for sharing their time with me, Carlo said “we love showing off our city” and they really did. After spending our time together, they both shared their love for me and their experience and I was cloud nine for the whole 3 hour drive home!

Marissa and Carlo’s chemistry is so clearly visible in their photos and their joy is contagious! Here are some favorites from their Chicago engagement session!
