Matt & Amanda | Crystal Lake | A Fall Illinois Engagement Session
If there is anyone in this world who deserves as much happiness as you’re about to see in these photos, it’s definitely these two. This couples holds SUCH a special place in my heart because Amanda is one of my dear friends. Amanda & I met during our freshman year of college and although Amanda ended up changing schools after her first year, we still remained close friends and she visited us often. It was during one of those visits that I remember hearing all about her “crush” — a cute guy she had in one of her classes. Amanda was giddy with excitement when she talked about this “crush” and although they weren’t even dating at the time, I think we all knew the this guy was something special.
I cannot emphasize enough how big Amanda’s heart is — she is the kindest person I’ve ever met, someone who genuinely + deeply cares about the people around her. Everyone that meets Amanda instantly falls in love with the happiness that she puts out in the world and her authentic efforts to leave every situation in a better place than she found it. I cannot sing high enough praises about this woman!!! With a soul as kind as hers, it makes perfect sense that her & Matt found each other. Matt is truly Amanda’s other half and would do anything to see her smile. Watching them interact during their engagement session made me realize how in sync they are with each other — so amazing to see a love like theirs. This couple is matched so perfectly & the world is better just by having them in it <3
Matt & Amanda, I CANT WAIT for your wedding next year and to witness your happiness + love for each other all over again. I’m so so thankful for our friendship!!!
