A blog of our current photography work.

Alyssa and Adam

We have always had good intentions to keep our blog updated and showcase all the beautiful weddings that we photograph but between wrangling our three awesome boys, all the (MANY) photo shoots this past year, and the work we've done with animal rescue our blog has been neglected.  Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be posting a few of the weddings we photographed this past year and, hopefully, this coming wedding season we will be able to keep things updated a little better!  

Today's post is going to showcase some of our favorite photos from Alyssa and Adam's wedding at Emerson Creek Pottery and Tea Room in Oswego, IL. We love getting some fresh air and photographing weddings that are out in the country.  Emerson Creek is one of our favorite places to shoot as it has a cute bridal coop for getting ready shots, the tented reception area that backs up to a converted shed that's perfect for cocktails, and all the beautiful scenery to take portraits in front of. But more importantly we wanted to share this wedding because Alyssa and Adam are so in love with each other and it was such a joy to photograph their sunny September outdoor ceremony.

Zoe and Thomas' Wedding

We love weddings held at the Morton Arboretum!  Their beautiful and natural landscapes offer boundless opportunities for portraits, even in the dead of winter! Zoe and Tom had such a lovely wedding, and we are so happy to have been a part of their sweet day!  We loved their style, and genuine and visible love for each other.  We enjoyed shooting both film and digital throughout the day, and love what we came away with!

Please enjoy a few of our favorite images from their day!




Ally and Tommy's Wedding

Ally and Tommy had such a wonderful day for their winter wedding, and they chose a dynamite team to pull it all together!  We loved their amazing color palette, and Kim from Bride + Joy Events was the perfect choice to make their incredible vision come to life!We can't say enough great things about their venue, Salvage One, one of our favorite spaces in the city!

Congratulations to Ally and Tommy, thanks so much for letting us be a part of your beautiful day!

Elisa and Matt's Wedding

Elisa and Matt got married a couple of weeks ago at the beautiful Heritage Prairie Farm. We loved the scenery and the relaxed feel of their day on the farm (not to mention their delicious homegrown organic food!).  Elisa and Matt's outdoor ceremony was held behind the farmhouse with rows of plants growing in the background.  And what can be better than parading away from the ceremony with instruments? These guys are an amazing group of people to work for (I've photographed both of Elisa's siblings weddings).  It was great to hang out with the Szopa family again! Here's a few of my favorite shots from their day! -Jake

Kimberley and Dan's Wedding

Kimberley and Dan's gorgeous summer wedding was held on a rustic farm at a place called Emerson Creek Pottery and Tearoom.  I loved the laid back rural vibe this venue had.  Emerson Creek had a bridal coop for getting ready shots, an outdoor ceremony space with a cornfield backdrop, a barn/tent reception, and a tea room for portraits- this place was amazing!  Kimberley, Dan, and party were a great group of people to work for and I'm so excited to show them all of their photos.  Enjoy this snapshot of their day! -Jake
