Where do I even begin with these two? Allie and I connected over Facebook Marketplace for some furniture I was selling to accommodate our 800 sq. ft. apartment after shortly moving to La Grange, IL. When Allie and Danny came over it was a group effort to move our couch out and down the elevator into their truck. We instantly connected and shared so many laughs during the struggle of moving. They both had moved right down the street from us and shared they were recently engaged and Allie had noticed I was a Photographer via Facebook. My excitement was hardly contained for the both of them!
Danny and Allie exhibit such love and friendship! They met while bartending and so as fate would have it we met at a brewery for their engagement photos and then chased the sunset at their wedding venue for some more formal style photos. We had so much fun on the golf course that night. The venue let us borrow golf carts so naturally they raced as we moved across the property to a different location. Their laughter and presence is contagious and so we decided another shoot was in order for the holidays.
Allie messaged me about coming over to their home they moved into together to capture some raw, authentic moments shared between the two of them and their puppy, Denny.
I may have called Denny…Danny and Danny…Denny during the entire shoot but it was fun and relaxing and intimate. Below are some sweet moments shared in their home that were gifted to family. I believe these moments before they hitch will forever be looked back on and remembered as a lot of their “first” times together in this space.
