Gloria and Andrew have such a fantastic story– they went to the same college, lived on the same floor, then shared the same street… and never met. I am such a sucker for romantic stories like theirs!
We had a great time chasing a beautiful sunset during their engagement session in downtown Chicago. They’re so comfortable together, all I really had to do was simply document their moments, which is my favorite thing to do!
I asked them both to share some of their own words below.
“In college our lives overlapped in so many ways it’s almost amazing we never met. In fact I spent most of my freshman year hanging out with my friends in the room right next to his. We often talk about how fun it would have been to have met during such a carefree point in our lives but I think the timing was perfect even though it didn’t seem like it at the time.
“I can’t speak for what Gloria loves about me but she is so thoughtful and fun! We seem to have a connection and pretty much always know what each other are thinking.
We have been living together for 2 and a half years and they have been lots of fun. Both of us are a bit of homebodies and we have really enjoyed ourselves in that time. That is part of why I ended up proposing at home (with all of our favorite foods and treats from around the city). We had champagne and sat by the fire outside. We are really excited to start our next adventure in New York!”
Thank you so much, Gloria and Andrew, please enjoy your engagement photographs. I can’t wait for your wedding at the Harold Washington Library!
