This past weekend was filled with sessions for my amazing 2019 couples! Laura and David’s Lincoln Park Zoo engagement session was the perfect way to begin it! These two are such naturals in front of the camera! We started in Old Town at Happy Camper where Laura & David had their first date. We even took a few minutes to take pictures at the exact booth they sat at! Then we went off to Lincoln Park Zoo and spent the rest of our night there! They even matched the nature 😉
Laura and David met almost 3 years ago. Both of them were on dating apps. David stumbled upon Laura’s profile and stopped in hid tracks because of how beautiful he thought she was. Her profile didn’t say much, except for at the time she worked at Groupon (fun story – they both worked there, different times, but were at the same holiday party one year, just didn’t know it!). David had a friend who also worked there, so he took a chance to see if he knew her.
His friend sure did, and sat near her! His friend offer to see if she was interested, David took a chance and agreed to have his friend talk to Laura for him. Laura agreed to hangout with him and that’s when they set a date to go to Happy Camper for pizza & drinks! They were put in a weird spot in the way back and were afraid it’d be awkward, but, they ended up talking the whole time and ended up being asked out due to the restaurant closing for the night.
David decided to propose on his birthday this past July. The two of them went out to the suburbs to visit Laura’s family at her parent’s house. They were outside enjoying the weather and eating dinner. Then to everyone’s surprise, David asked Laura to marry him. They all had no idea it was coming and Laura even asked him the night before when they’d be finally getting engaged!
Laura is David’s best friend and he loves her down-to-earth, humble and quirky personality. He says she’s honest, caring, and that marrying her next year is the easiest decision he’ll ever have to make. David is Laura’s favorite person and loves his sensitive, caring, and sweet personality. He can cheer her up after a long day and always knows how she’s feeling and what she’s thinking.
You can find them hanging out the two of them watching Netflix at home, at street festivals in the summer, going on double dates, or heading out to the suburbs to see Laura’s family!
They’re getting married at the Kimpton Grey Hotel next October. It’s going to be an amazing fall day for these two and I can’t wait to celebrate them and meet their friends and family!
