Dana was first introduced to Dan by a colleague but it wasn’t until a group of friends started to sit together during their lunch breaks months later when Dana really met Dan.
After a particularly long week, the group of coworkers met for happy hour. Dana and Dan spent the happy hour talking as one hour quickly turned into seven hours. On that night, Dan knew Dana was special and that he needed to spend more time with her. So he invited her out to dinner which led to an amazing evening which led to unforgettable years together as a couple.
The unpredictable spring weather caused us to reschedule our session three times, until we finally had a gorgeous May afternoon. It was worth the wait so that I could met Val, Geoff and little Elle in Elmhurst to photograph Elle’s one year photos. I love photographing families that like theirs; they were singing, dancing, and laughing ….. all of which created amazing candid moments rather than posed photos. Our time together was oh, so, sweet.
Both were business majors at Notre Dame for over a year before they crossed paths on campus. Josh and Arianna were at r&b night, an unlikely place for both of them, when Arianna caught Josh’s gaze. Like a true southern gentleman, Josh walked Arianna back to her dorm room that night, and he couldn’t help but think how special Arianna was. It only took Arianna a few dates, many adorable text messages and one really perfect conversation at Starbucks to realize Josh was the guy.
