Anne & Kelly joined me in Highland Park for their engagement session a few weeks ago, and it was beautiful! We couldn’t have asked for a better day to have their session on. The sun was shining for the first time in what felt like months, and we were lucky enough to have a very thin blanket of snow!
Length of Dating: 2 Years
Length of Engagement: 3 Months
The Proposal Story: Kelly and I are BIG dinner people; we eat dinner together every night. We listen to some of our timeless favorite artists during dinner: Sinatra, Martin, Ella, Steele Dan, Raydio, Commodores, Spinners, Chicago, and some Rod Stewart. It’s a routine if the music isn’t playing, something is wrong! We also dance together at night; it’s our way of unwinding! It was a normal night; I was in my pajamas, we had just finished our dinner, and we were dancing to Ciao Ciao Bambina. Kelly told me he had a question; I assumed he would ask what we were having for dessert. Instead, he got down on one knee and proposed. I thought he was kidding and was in complete shock. We immediately facetimed my Mom & Dad, our BFFs, Amanda & Todd, and Kelly’s Dad & Stepmom. Ever since, it has been bliss!
What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?
Him: Kelly is most looking forward to celebrating our marriage and sharing it with friends/family, and sharing our lives.
Her: I am SUPER excited to wear my dresses! Both really show my personality, HUGE and SPARKLEY! Also, to marry Kelly, haha, I love him so much!.
Anne & Kelly brought a bottle of champagne with them to their session, which I love! Popping a bottle of champagne at your engagement session is a great way to break the ice and have some fun during your session. If you’re feeling nervous about your engagement portraits you should definitely bring a bottle with you! The photos speak for themselves!!
I can’t wait for Anny & Kelly’s upcoming wedding this June!!! If you’d like to inquire about your wedding date you can do so here.
