Marie and Mike

Marie and Mike had such a beautiful wedding at Meson Sabika a few weeks ago. We were honored to be a part of their day, and truly enjoyed being around everyone present!

Jennifer and Marie both volunteer at Second City Canine Rescue, and we were thrilled that their SCCR Alum, Murph, stood up in their wedding as their ring bearer for their special day.

Marie and Mike’s laughter-filled ceremony was absolutely lovely, and I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a dry eye watching them say “I do”!

Please take a look through their gallery for a peek at their day.

All our best!

Kristin and Andrew

Kristin and Andrew were married the other week at a unique venue in Chicago called Chez. To me it was a perfect studio space and it was made for me to photograph in! The day started with some getting ready shots at the Sheraton nearby where I got some great doggie portraits, too. Kristin and Andrew had a first look along the Riverfront and we were able to get some skyline shots in at Olive Park before it started raining on us. Once it started raining we dashed back to the bus and hit up Union Station as our back up plan. Thank you to Kristin and Andrew for having me capture their wedding day!

Sarah and Eric

I had the pleasure of photographing Sarah and Eric’s wedding the other week at one of coolest venues in Illinois, The Silver Fox. It was an old Masonic Temple that they turned into a swanky speakeasy feeling wedding venue. Seriously, everywhere you turn at this place is an opportunity to make great photos. The day started with one of the groomsmen combing through their extensive vinyl collection which set the mood of the day. Their ceremony was held upstairs in an old auditorium and the reception was downstairs in a refurbished community room. I had a wonderful time spending the day with Sarah and Eric and I can’t wait to show them all the photos!
