We had THE MOST beautiful September weather for H & E’s end of summer Lincoln Park Zoo engagement session. It was so lovely outside and these two looked AH-MAZING! And killed it! H’s red dress just POPPED with the greenery in the park! She looked like real life Emoji! And E was looking cool and suave in his jeans. They are also sweet as can be! E is super friendly and H is a very hard working – go getter girl and smart! You can really tell they enjoy each other’s company and love to have lots of fun together. They were made for one other! I love how H just easily smiled around E and how relaxed they made each other feel and appear.
This location is really special to them. Since they are both from Ohio, Chicago is the first home outside of their hometown together. They wanted these photos to honor their time in Chicago because of how much they love the city and they want to remember the beauty near their apartment where they spent a lot of time together.
H & E met when they were in high school back in Ohio. E was the new kid in town from California. E laughed and he said, “Yeah, I had hair down to my shoulders!”. The new guy at school certainly caught her attention. H & E both admitted to having crushes on each other. After some time of being just friends they finally began dating. Their first date was to go get sushi together and that’s how they spend most of their time together now. They like to go out to eat, cook, exploring the city, and enjoying time together.
E proposed on Easter Sunday this past April. The two enjoyed a quite, dinner for two that evening. After dinner, they went to enjoy the night on their patio and that’s when E asked H to be with him forever. It was exactly what the two of them wanted – peaceful, intimate, and between the two of them.
These cuties are having a destination wedding this upcoming late spring in Cancun! They are super excited to have small intimate 25 person wedding where they can just relax, have fun, and celebrate their story with their closest friends and family! I can tell it’s going to be exactly that and more for them!
