Lindsey and Kevin

Lindsey and Kevin had such a relaxed and fun brunch wedding at Beatnik on the River a few weeks ago. I so enjoyed being able to capture their day, and being swept up in all the excitement and beauty of their unique and love-filled wedding!

Please enjoy a few of my favorite images from their day! Their gorgeous flowers were done by Oliver Dogwood Floral Co.


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!

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!
