alexa & ryan

6th grade is where it all began.  Because sometimes love finds you before your ready…before you could know that you’ve met the person that you want to hold hands with through ALL the things.

But that spark still remained.  As did their friendship.

And so years later, when they saw each other at a party in college – that friendship and love quickly led them back together.  Because home was each other.


Alexa and Ryan, I CANNOT EVEN.  First and foremost, thank you for waking up at the CRAZY EARLY hours of the morning so we could have perfect light for a Chicago sunrise engagement session.  Thank you for sharing your story and your hearts for each other with me.  For standing in the middle of the road and taking over Starbucks and WALKING IN HEELS through it all!!!!  (That last part was just for you, Alexa…)  I cannot wait for your wedding day.  To watch as you two get to celebrate this beautiful love in front of family and friends and FINALLY BE DONE WITH LONG DISTANCE!

I love you both to the moon and back!


Alexa, I’m just gonna go ahead and say what we’re all thinking: HOLY BUCKETS OF STUNNING.





Could they be any more adorable?  Nope.  Not possible.
