Brittany & Bryan

On a perfect October day, I had the ultimate pleasure of shooting with the sweetest couple, Brittany & Bryan, at the beautiful Danada Farms in Wheaton, IL.

How did I luck into this adorable pair? It's actually a funny story. We became connected through brotherhood. No, seriously, our brothers connected us. Brittany and I attended high school together and graduated the same year. Our brothers also graduated from that same high school together four years later and were/are close friends. Her brother recommended me, and here we are. Funny how the world works.

Brittany, who is currently in med school, met Bryan while volunteering for a free clinic in California. After so time getting to know one another, Bryan asked her on a date to explore LA. This past February, he took Brittany in the gardens of the Getty Museum in LA (one of the places they went on their first date) with a book he wrote and illustrated of their story together. On the last page, he was proposing. I can't even 😢.

This day was so much fun, and the fall colors were perfect! Even their pup Loki got to in on the fun!

Brittany and Bryan will be wed in Chicago on January 4th at Salvatore's in Lincoln Park! I can't wait!
