I can’t help but swoon over Sara and Brad’s downtown Chicago engagement session! This stunning couple were brave enough to wake up so early to capture the sunrise around this spectacular city.

This enchanting couple were college sweethearts, and from the moment they met they knew they would be with each other forever. Chicago holds a very special place in their hearts. Brad proposed on April 26th at one of the most romantic spots in Chicago, Buckingham Fountain. He had plans to go out to different spots in city, and to end up at the Buckingham Fountain. Even though that day was a not-so-spring day, and the Fountain was turned off, it did not stop them from enjoying this beautiful city and each other. The obvious love they have for each other just made them laugh about how funny life and love can be sometimes. Memories like these will be reminders about how happy they are to spend the rest of their lives with each other and having many more adventures together.

On the day of the session we had planned to go back where Sara said, “YES!” Well, let me tell you that the fountain was off in the morning for repair. Of course we couldn’t help but laugh at the situation and enjoy the rest of the beautiful day in the city. The way they smiled and glanced throughout the session truly shows how much they are meant to be together. By the end of the session we passed by the fountain and it was back on, so we jumped out and went to the spot where Brad got down on one knee and asked Sara to be with him forever! I can’t wait to capture Sara and Brad’s wedding day next year!
