A Romantic Engagement Session at Soldier Field: Amanda + Oscar

Seven and half years had flown by, like great times seem to do. Amanda and Oscar had met years back through a mutual friend, and just like that, their love had grown to a forever kind of love that neither wanted to live without. As they walked hand in hand in a park where Amanda had spent countless hours as a child, Oscar bent down on a knee, and asked Amanda to marry him. She was in complete shock, and asked him over and over if he was kidding. Oscar put a gorgeous ring on his bride-to-be finger, and she said YES!

After they got back to Amanda’s childhood home, Oscar had let her parents, brother and grandmother in on the romantic proposal and were all waiting in the dining room. Roses, champagne and all the people Amanda love the most in the world were there to celebrate one of the most special moments in their lives. As if it couldn’t get any better, later that night, Oscar surprised Amanda again with a night out with all of their best friends to celebrate.

Amanda and Oscar say they are complete opposites– and that they fall more and more in love because it. For their engagement session, they choose a beautiful location in Chicago that really showcases their love and differences: Soldier Field. He is a Bears Fan, and she prefers the green and gold team to the North. I hope you enjoy some of my favorites, and I can’t wait for this beautiful wedding in the spring!

This ring is so beautiful!

A favorite!

Oscar’s ability to make Amanda makes me smile…







After a quick outfit change, I knew their love for each other was undoubtedly true!




Love this!

I’ll end with this sweet picture of this beautiful couple… <3

Happy Thursday!
