Alex + Jen | Engaged | An Old Town Chicago + North Avenue Beach Engagement Session.

October 22, 2014

I really don’t even know where to begin with this couple–we absolutely LOVE them!! Alex + Jen are two of the kindest, funniest, + most personable people we have ever met, + getting to work with them has been nothing but the GREATEST joy!!! I don’t think I’ve laughed more with, or felt move loved than by these two people : ) They continuously tell us how lucky they feel to be working with us + all I can say is, we feel the SAME!!! We have been SO blessed by their friendship, generosity, + most importantly, their love. Alex + Jen are MADLY in love with each other–like, there is NO denying it. The way these two look at each other, flirt + romance each other, giggle incessantly + call each other adorable little nick names (yes, we noticed them you two!!) will make anyone’s heart MELT : ) 

A+J met in college at UW-Lacrosse when Jen was actually trying to set him up with her roommate!! I guess it didn’t work out–but hey, I think it’s for the better ; ) These two are positively meant to be + I am SO GLAD their paths crossed nearly 5 years ago!! Alex proposed while vacationing with Jen + his family in Waupaca (where I am from … whoop, whoop!!!) : ) When Jen arrived, Alex told her he wanted to go “fishing” out in the pontoon + she kindly refused two times before he convinced her they had to go ; ) She obviously had NO idea what was about to happen, but I think it’s safe to say she is glad she agreed!! Alex proposed, Jen said YES!!, and the two are getting married next August!! We cannot WAIT for them to finally be husband + wife!!!! 

For now, enjoy some of my FAVORITES from their session–and be warned, there are lots!! I just couldn’t narrow it down ; ) Future Coopmans–we love you two!! Have an amazing Wednesday!! -M


Alex + Jen live in Old Town Chicago, which is THE cutest neighborhood filled with old brick homes, tree-lined streets, + colors, colors, colors!! We LOVED shooting right in their “backyard”!!

Not fair!! Too beautiful!!

GUSH. Jen!!!!

Ohhh, this view!!! Maybe this is my favorite!!!!

Just perfect you two!!

His eyes–we LOVED them! How can you not!?

Stay tuned for Alex + Jen’s wedding pics in August 2015!!!
