Oh, Dara and Gabe! These two are the loveliest couple and I had to make sure their sweet downtown Chicago engagement session made it to the blog.
It was a hot evening last July when we met up - just 5 days before their wedding! One of my favorite things about their wedding day was the joyful anticipation you could FEEL infused in every part of their day. And their engagement session was no different! You can see it in their eyes and their smiles: these two adore each other, and were so excited to become husband and wife.
Dara and Gabe are both talented dancers (check out their gorgeous lift a few photos down!), and were both so naturally graceful their entire session. We had so much fun walking through downtown Chicago and Olive Park, talking about their upcoming wedding and taking a few minutes to just breathe.
While they both could clearly be models, I think the most beautiful thing about Dara and Gabe is their hearts. They are kind and sweet to each other, warm and friendly to each person they interact with, and considerate and loving to the friends and family who gathered with them to celebrate the start of their lives together. Enjoy these sweet moments from their engagement session, and make sure to see their beautiful wedding too!
