Crystal Lake Engagement Photography

Lanah and Justin first met in middle school. As Lanah tells the story, they even dated for… one day. Yes, one ENTIRE day. Middle school romances change as fast as the Chicago weather. It wasn’t until a few years later that she figured she would give this puppy-love romance another chance. That was when a group of their high school friends went to a drive-in movie and Justin bought Lanah a soft pretzel. That night was the first time they held hands and they haven’t let go since.

Lanah and Justin grew up and matured together and some years later, on a vacation cruise, Justin asked Lanah to be his wife. Lanah’s mother was present for the proposal and was tasked by Justin to take photos of the event. Well even the best plans don’t always come to fruition – mom was so excited and wrapped up in the moment that she completely forgot about the photos!

Of course, their families celebrated and now wedding plans are being finalized as Lanah and Justin prepare to say “I do” next month. We are excited and looking forward to celebrating with these two along with their families and friends. It will also be special for Marc and I because these two will be tying the knot at the same venue at which Marc and I were married, Bull Valley. We are looking forward to revisiting one of our favorite spots.
