These two are beautifully, wonderfully, extraordinarily PERFECT together. That’s me using a ton of words to say, I loved working with these two! Walking into Alexa and Sam’s engagement session, I was really anxious to finally meet them in person. I had spoken with Alexa briefly on the phone before they officially asked me to document their wedding. I knew then from our short conversation that they were really wonderful people, so getting to see them together for the first time was so much fun. I was grateful that even with the pandemic, they were able to make the trip from Chicago to Fort Wayne to capture these moments.
Alexa and Sam first met at college. It began with the classic question, “I need help with homework, can you help me?” They met up at the library, where they spent the whole time laughing and hitting it off. One day of spending time together turned into many and the rest is history!
Flash-forward 5.5 years after Alexa had moved to Chicago, Sam planned a full day of Alexa’s favorite activities in the city to distract her from what would become her surprise engagement party. They ended the afternoon at Garfield Park Conservatory where he got down on one knee and asked his best friend to spend a lifetime with him.
These two are pure JOY– as you will see as you scroll through their photos. They made every single part of it fun, and Sam was 100% himself, relaxed and joking around throughout the entire session. It was completely my honor to have gotten to know them that night, and I am so, so, so excited to see these two get married this coming August!!
