Dan & Hayley | A Lakeside Engagement Session at Grant Park

I can’t think of a better way to start off the day than with Dan & Hayley’s lakeside engagement session at Grant Park! Ever since Hayley described herself & Dan as “kids at heart,” I’ve been dying to meet these two! For those of you who know me, I’m usually laughing my way through life so to meet a couple who is all about adventure + silliness + the joy of little moments… I knew it was a perfect match!

The story of how Dan & Hayley met seriously makes you believe in fate! About 2 years ago, one of Hayley’s friends set up a profile on a dating app for her (much to Hayley’s dismay) — but she made Hayley PROMISE to keep the profile up for one week and just go on one little date. What could be the harm, right?! The very last night of that “deal”, Hayley and Dan connected and quickly exchanged phone numbers. Even though Hayley deleted the app that same night, she kept talking to Dan and they decided to meet up! The first (and only) date was all these two needed and as Dan puts it, “the relationship was so easy from the start”. 

Our entire night was filled to the brim with laughter, bear hugs, and conversation about their passions. Hayley is a wildly talented actress who has been performing professionally in musicals — despite her incredible success, Hayley also knew she had a passion for leading so she returned to school and focused on education. She now teaches a room full of bright young minds and is SO dedicated to making a difference! Dan compliments Hayley’s personality with his quiet intellect and thoughtful gestures — it was evident through watching them interact that he absolutely adores her & goes out of his way to show her every day.

Dan & Hayley, I can’t wait to celebrate with you again next year at your wedding! Xo

Love this one of you two!
