These two have such a sweet little story! Ellen told me "we met my freshman and his senior year of college but didn’t actually start dating for another year and a half. We had a strange and kinda long start to our story, when we finally started dating it was at a rocky time in my life where he became my backbone and best friend. I don’t know when it happened, but home stopped being a place and started being him." They said after 3.5 years years of dating they went back to Chicago to visit Ellen's family. Tanner suggested they go to the city for the day and do all the touristy things! She said they started walking to the Shedd Aquarium and while walking down Lake Michigan they stopped to admire the view and get a picture! Next thing she knows, he gets down on one knee!! They said immediately after it began POURING rain! Tanner said "we went and huddled under a bridge and celebrated just the two of us while the storm passed." Oh my gosh! How cool is that!? I love these two. We had a great time at Papago park doing photos. They were even willing to hike up the huge rock! I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in February 2020!!
