Photo Shoot at Montrose Beach & Bird Sanctuary

Categories Real Weddings

No downtown Chicago photo session for these two! That’s what photographer Emily Alt had to say about Christine and Forest … “a dynamic couple with loud laughs, dry wit and fabulous style!” Christine and Forest know who they are as a couple and what they wanted for their engagement session. Since they’re getting married this summer on a semi-rustic farm, Christine wanted something in line with a romantic, quiet wedding–and not downtown. So, Christine and Forest met Emily on a spring afternoon {albeit a very blustery afternoon} for some shots on Chicago’s Montrose Beach and at the Montrose Bird Sanctuary. With the beach to themselves and a few DIY Geronimo balloons, they had a wonderful afternoon goofing around and putting their love to pictures.

Thanks to Christine, Forest and Emily for sharing this fun day with us! Congrats!
