I traveled to Lake Forest recently to have an engagement shoot with Marisa and Michael. Lake Forest is Marisa’s hometown and she was in love with the idea of incorporating some the village’s most beautiful spots into their session… and the village did not disappoint! We started out on the shore of Lake Michigan, where the two kicked off their shoes and got their toes in the sand.
I was impressed with how well Michael climbed this light– especially since he wasn’t wearing shoes!!
The lovebirds had a little smooch-‘n-swing…
…and then we traveled to a nearby nature preserve. It was so gorgeous there… hard to believe we were mere miles away from the city!
While we took photos we discussed the plans for their wedding, which was only a few days away. These two were just as glowing and happy on their wedding day as they were in this picture. I can’t wait to share the images from their big day!
What a fun day, Marisa and Michael! Thanks for spending time with me!
Check in again soon to see the pictures from Michael and Marisa’s wedding!
