I swear, Chicago sets the scene for some of the loveliest engagement sessions around. With it’s sweeping views and gorgeous backdrops it simply screams to be part of such a special time. It’s all made even better when that session is snapped up by someone as talented as Sharon Nicole Photography, and you can see all the reasons why here.

From the Bride…John and I were so excited to have the opportunity to take our engagement photos in Chicago! We share a love for the city and I finally joined John in Chicago after 15 months of long distance. We wanted to capture this special time in our lives in this fabulous city. It was so hard to narrow down our choices for the shoot but landed on three places that are special to us. We chose North Avenue Beach with the Chicago skyline, Lincoln Park, and the Northwestern campus. It was so special to have Sharon fly up to Chicago and take our photographs on a gorgeous fall day! We had such a great time and also celebrated John’s 26th birthday! We are thrilled to be getting married and can’t wait for Sharon to photograph our wedding in May!
