Molly and Andrew’s North Avenue Beach engagement session was dream shoot for Molly. When she filled out my contact form, she mentioned that although they had a few engagement photos done when Andrew proposed, her DREAM shot was walking in front of the skyline at North Avenue Beach. Mission accomplished. 🙂
Much of Molly and Andrew’s love story is in the city of Chicago, so an engagement session here was very special to them. But this couple met way back as freshman at the University of Michigan. They were introduced by mutual friends. While they politely acknowledged one another, they each went their separate ways. That is, until their paths crossed again playing in a charity volleyball tournament. They decided to connect for an intramural team that following fall. Neither of them expected anything to come of that, but by Christmas she was traveling to meet his family and a few weeks later, he traveled to meet hers. I love what Molly says about their relationship, “We cautiously fell in love but were absolutely inseparable from the start.”
Those next three years of college and the past two years of post-grad life in Chicago, have been filled with camping trips, volleyball games, trying new recipes, European travels and numerous Michigan sporting events. Andrew propose this past June in the middle of the college campus, because he wanted to take her back to were it all began for them. Molly’s words are perfect when she says, With tears in my eyes and the truest joy in my heart, we turned around to both of our families looking on and cheering! On August 15, 2020, these two families will become one as we begin the next chapter in my favorite love story: ‘The Hammonds.'”
Funny story . . . Right after they popped the cork on this champagne, a bird came along and grabbed the cork, flying off with it. Don’t worry, though. The bird quickly dropped it when it realized it wasn’t a very tasty snack.
Molly, it was such a joy to give you your dream engagement photos with your love. I wish you much love and joy in this season and for all the years to come as you grow old together.
