North Ave Beach Engagement Photos | Jessica & Bill

Today we are featuring Jessica and Bill who had such a beautiful North Ave Beach Engagement session. The story of this couple is one of great faith. Having booked their wedding venue when restrictions were only allowing 15 people, this couple had faith that things were going to turn around and are now getting ready to celebrate their wedding.

One night as Bill was showing his friends how dating apps worked, they stumbled upon Jessica’s profile and all agreed that she was worth a swipe. They didn’t meet up right away but instead took some time to get to know one another. They found out they had much more in common than anyone they had met before. For both Bill and Jessica, they had that ever sought after “knowing” feeling when they met and knew that they had met their life partner.

The week before the proposal, Bill recreated five of their first seven dates. At the end of these dates, Bill popped the question! While getting engaged had been discussed, this was a complete surprise for Jessica! Both described it as such a magical moment for them.

This couple is completely down to earth and you can truly see their deep, intimate love for one another. These two have found their perfect match. It was amazing to spend some time capturing their relationship at this North Ave Beach engagement session.

We headed down to Lincoln Park for this session. Bill, who is an avid runner, had always passed by engagement shoots while on his runs in the park and knew that when the time came for him, he wanted to bring his love to this place. The weather was perfect and these two really made the day!

Jessica and Bill, I wish you all the best as you start this new chapter of your life.
