Lindsay & Sean :: Engaged

Chicago Engagement Photos

Timing and fate are something funny to consider – especially with Lindsay and Sean’s love story. These two met many moons ago at work – they even had desks right next to each other! Lindsay and Sean were actually both in other relationships at the time they first met, so they never really talked or got to know each other until the timing was just right (and the fact that Sean thought Lindsay was too cool for him to even talk to at first, hehe).   Eventually, Sean moved to a different department at work. Eventually, it took them running into each other at the gym to actually make them realize ‘Oh, hey, we used to work next to each other’. Since then, they have been inseparable and have since added an ADORABLE Bernese Mountain dog to their family and picked up and moved to Chicago. 
I have known Lindsay for a few years (since high school softball days!). Lindsay was always a very strong and determined young woman. I had the wonderful opportunity of hanging out with Lindsay and her soon-to-be hubs in Chicago when we did their engagement photo session. Lindsay and Sean are the perfect compliment to each other. I’m so glad I got to spend time with them and learn more about them, and their relationship. Just like Lindsay, Sean is very motivated and is attending school in Chicago to further his education in something he loves – finance and business. Lindsay is definitely a huge support for Sean and I can these two work together and share mutual respect for one another’s dreams.

I cannot wait for their Rock Island Lake Club wedding in 2018 – yay!!

How cute is MOOSE! Their Bernese Mountain Dog?! He was so sweet to hang out with for the few days I was in Chicago.


I loved Lindsay and Sean’s casual out fit choices. Lindsay wore GAP jeans, and Express tank, a BP Sweater (from Nordstrom), Steve Madden booties,
earrings from Target! Perfect fall colors! Sean wore boots from Clarks; Socks from the Gap (cause socks are just as important!); Jeans from Banana Republic and a Charles Tyrwhitt button down shirt.

Oh gosh, neither of us could come up with anything! Probably a rom-com, something light-hearted and silly. It definitely wouldn’t be an Oscar-winner.

The proposal happened on a Friday, and we were going to Vermont to spend the weekend with Sean’s family. After work, I had an appointment on Newbury street and then we were supposed to leave. As I was leaving for my appointment, Sean suggested that we take advantage of the nice day and go for a walk down by the Charles River since it was supposed to snow in Vermont the whole weekend. Even though the river is one of my favorite places in Boston, I had a rough day that day and just wanted to get on the road – so I told him that I would only go if we could get Ben and Jerry’s first.

After my appointment and once I had my ice cream, we strolled down to the Charles and hung out for a bit. On the way home, we were walking over a
footbridge when Sean stopped and got down on one knee to ask me to marry him. I completely freaked out, covered my face and said “Yes!” multiple
times – I was so surprised! Once the shock was over we called all of our friends and family to share the news and then spent the weekend in Vermont

For the dressier outfits – we headed to the Chicago Riverfront walk. Sean sported a quick outfit change with a new
shirt and a Jacket from Ludlow Shop. Lindsay wore a beautiful Free People maxi dress, Steve Madden heels, and Target earrings!

We are most excited about becoming husband and wife and celebrating with all the people we love the most. Our family and friends are located all over
the place so we are really looking forward to having everyone together in one place. Also the food and the party!
