I became instant friends with GiAnna and Austin when I met them. They were both in a wedding I photographed this summer (*shoutout Lauren and Zach!*) and I just loved getting to know them! GiAnna told me she had hoped a proposal was coming but would get ahold of me when it did! Little did we both know that Austin had already asked her father’s permission just days before. He was so smooth keeping it secret! Fast forward a couple of months and Austin finally asked! I was ecstatic when GiAnna reached out to me about photographing their engagement session!
GiAnna had a vision for snow for their engagement photos, we tried a few times but the storms weren’t strong enough. Finally, we got the perfect snowfall and I headed up to the Chicago suburbs to capture these two! I am not going to lie, it was frigid cold. But GiAnna and Austin were total troopers and bared through it. You will see how beautiful the scenery was, so it was totally worth it! These two were fun, playful and full of smiles! There adorable Shiba, Leia joined as well and I instantly fell in love with her! I am so excited to share more from GiAnna and Austin’s engagement session!
