It was 2010 when their love story began...

One lovely day, Angela tagged along with her sister to watch a Chicago Blaze Rugby game. Her sister's boyfriend was on the team and naturally Angela would get a chance to meet the other team members. And thankfully she did...

...because the first team member she was introduced to was Alex!

And after some modern day "courting", Alex asked Angela out on their first date!

Things must of went pretttttty well...

...because they fell madly in love! ( I mean, it's pretty obvious why he would be so smitten)

After 3 wonderful years of sharing family, friends and memories... He asked for her hand. (But ONLY after asking permission from her father first, aww!)

She of course, said YES!

As fate would have it, Angela would contact me shortly after to capture this special time in their lives. I couldn't be happier! Alex is a long-time friend of mine from middle school and its an honor to have been considered!

Although it rained during their engagement session, they kept spirits up with their infectious laughs and good humour! I felt the rain had held us back from poses, so we did do a re-shoot, but the more I stare at this set of images, the more I appreciate their simplicity and rawness!

I can't WAIT for their wedding this December! It's going to be an unforgettable night!
