Debbie and Alex got engaged at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. Being a hobbyist photographer himself, Alex had pre-arranged for Disney Photo pass team to photograph the proposal. At the designated time, it was raining and Debbie couldn’t understand why Alex was adamant on taking photos… until he dropped to one knee and took out the ring.

A month later, they returned to run what turned out to be the coldest Disney World Marathon with temperatures below freezing! That didn’t give them cold feet however, and the couple was wed at St. Techla in Chicago, followed by outdoor photos at Cantigny Park in Wheaton and a reception at Arrowhead Country Club. One of my favorite moments was the father-daughter dance where Debbie’s loving relationship with her father was evident. Prior to Debbie becoming a pharmacist, she worked in the photography industry, which is where she decided that I would someday be her photographer. Alex works as an electrical engineer and the couple reside in the Chicago area.
