This past Fall, when I got an email from Carissa, asking me if I would be willing to travel to Chicago for their engagement session, I don’t think I could say ‘yes’ fast enough. I love Chicago and couldn’t wait to explore the city with Carissa and Alec.

Carissa and Alec have known each other since the 10th grade and started dating in the 12th grade! After college, they moved to Chicago as a couple, started their careers, welcomed a pup Leo into their lives, and have made it a tradition to do steak night dinners out on Fridays!

We had the best time running around the city to capture their engagement session. I am so thankful the two of them are so flexible and were willing to move up their session a day because the next day was a complete rain day. I can’t wait for Carissa and Alec’s wedding this year in Minnesota!
