When Cheyenne and Alistair said they wanted to do a beach engagement session I couldn’t have been happier. I love Chicago engagements and other creative engagements. But this California boy loves and always will feel more at home at the beach. That was my thought going in to this session. I wanted to give them that California feel in their engagement sessions. Bright colors, landscape portraiture, all of it. Wide open and airy was the name of the game!
These two were such a pleasure to photograph. Each moment was pure and personal. Throughout the session you got to see their personalities pop out more and more.
As we made our walk to the last destination of the night I knew I wanted to get some BIG and EPIC sunset photos for them. The Dunes are a great beach to mimic that “West Coast” feel, and if you didn’t know the beach very well you’d swear we were back in Cali. We arrived at the top of the peak and started shooting!
BUT FIRST! Some passion for you!
We ended the night walking down the hill with the privilege of clear skies and bright orange sunset. The weather was perfect, only a slight breeze was detected with cool, not cold, spring air hitting our faces. Thank you Alistair and Cheyenne for allowing me to capture your engagement. 2020 will be here before we know it!
