Grace and Matt's love story began with a chance encounter. Introduced by both of their mom's mutual friend, they went on a blind date that would change their lives forever. They met just before the pandemic, and their connection was instant. The rest, as they say, is history!

This past December, Matt and Grace had the most wonderful time celebrating Christmas in Chicago! They sipped on delicious hot cocoa at the Christkindl Market, watched a beautiful performance of "The Nutcracker," enjoyed a delicious dinner by the river, and ended the night with a visit to their favorite place, the Lincoln Park Zoo to see the Zoo Lights. In front of the Primate House, Matt got down on one knee and asked Grace to be his wife. Of course, she said, "YES!"

Matt and Grace, thank you for letting me take your engagement photos at the beautiful locations you picked out in Chicago. I had so much fun exploring the Conservatory, Lincoln Park Zoo, and the Lincoln Park Nature Boardwalk with you both. You two are seriously the cutest, and I'm beyond excited for your wedding in September! Your sneak peek is now ready for you to enjoy together!!

Grace and Matt, it was great spending time with you both! I had a fantastic time, and I absolutely LOVE the final images we got! Your wedding at Riverside Receptions in Geneva is going to be so beautiful! I can't wait! Thank you for having me!
