Amanda & Michael


On a brisk Saturday afternoon, Amanda and Michael braved the Chicago cold for their south side engagement session at the University of Chicago & 31st Beach of the lakefront. 


According to Amanda, she spotted Michael on campus and thought he was the cutest guy ever but didn't know anything about him and didn't know how to approach him. After a girl's night out for Amanda's birthday, they officially met at a house party after an introduction sponsored by a little liquid courage. The rest was history!


Amanda's birthday holds many of their important milestones. Every year they take an annual trip to the aquarium or zoo, and in April 2019, after a trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo, Micheal proposed on the boardwalk. 


I can't wait to shoot their spring wedding on May 22, 2021, at the Royal Sonesta Riverfront!
