Adam was playing baseball at Notre Dame University and Danielle was attending St. Mary’s College right across the street the year they met! It was their sophomore year and they met through mutual friends over winter break when Adam was helping out at a Notre Dame kids camp. A friend asked Danielle if she wanted to go out with her one night and she ended up meeting Adam! Something just clicked and they’ve been inseparable since!

After college they moved to Chicago. While celebrating their eight year anniversary downtown Adam popped the question! They were walking along the Belmont Harbor and Adam got down on one knee and asked Danielle to spend forever with him right where the path comes to a point and overlooks the city! How romantic right?! They’ll be getting married next June, which will be the tenth year of being together! I can’t wait! 

For their engagement session we decided to relive it all and take their photos in downtown Chicago at the Lincoln Park Zoo and back at their engagement spot, Belmont Harbor! It was so much fun tagging along with these two capturing some beautifulllll Fall colors, that killer skyline, sweet memories, and lots of laughs and snuggles to celebrate their engagement! 

Danielle + Adam, you are two of the most warm and joyful people I’ve ever met and you make my job soooo easy! I’m so glad you’ve chosen me to be your wedding photographer! It means the world to me and I seriously can’t wait to celebrate with you guys in June! It can’t come soon enough! Until then, enjoy a few of my favorite moments from your engagement session below!
