Where do I begin with these two? Sam and I have known Brandon & Danielle from church for years. We even joke that Brandon is our “son.” Here is our family portrait at Christmas in 2010. **
**Please note that Brandon did NOT take after Sam’s seriously scary facial hair.
ANYWAYS. Back to these two. Best friends for years. Amazing people. And finally, one Sunday at church, I see his arm around her! WHAT?! This perfect match turned most hilarious power couple had finally gotten together, and I was SO EXCITED.
Fast forward to today, and they have given me the total honor to photograph their WEDDING. Brandon & Danielle are gettin’ hitched! But first, I got them to freeze their booties off in “18 degrees- feel-like-4” weather for their engagement session, and they were TROOPERS! We ventured to the lakefront for about 15 minutes for the sunrise, and they pretended their faces weren’t going to fall off for me like champs. We then retired to Ipsento Coffee in Bucktown to defrost and enjoy some amazing lattes and beautiful details. Once these two warmed up, we finally ventured back out for a few more photos underneath the Bloomingdale Trail. We genuinely had so much fun.
B & D, you know we love you. You’re kind, generous, and constantly serve everyone around you. I know SO many people in our community have been blessed by you as individuals, and I can only imagine what God is going to do through you both as a couple. You are LOVED!
