A blog of our current photography work.

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!

Peter and Sarah

It's always a special honor to be included in the weddings of our family.  Jennifer's cousin Peter, and his stunning bride, Sarah, had the sweetest DIY wedding at the Farnsley Moremen Landing in Louisville, KY a few weeks ago.  Their beautiful, heartfelt ceremony was filled with laughter and love, and we couldn't be happier for the two of them.

We loved all their delicate and simple details, and the way Peter couldn't take his eyes off of his new wife - or the smile from his face.  Our kids loved the ice cream bar, and exploring the beautiful grounds of the property!

Many congratulations to this amazing couple as they start their life together.

We love you!

Julie Beth's Maternity Photos

Photographing this beautiful Mama-to-be is an easy task. I was lucky to be able to spend a few days with Julie and Jerome in Colorado a couple of weeks ago, and were able to go out a few times to get some photos of Julie's amazing baby bump.  We did an evening shoot at a park with their dogs, an afternoon shoot up near a mountain lake, and a sunrise shoot near their home.

Julie is my sister, and she is such a gift to me.  I know she is going to be an amazing mother, and I am excited to watch her transition into this new role of motherhood.

Please enjoy a few of my favorite images from our time together!






Jaclyn and Kyle's Wedding

Jaclyn and Kyle were married a couple of weeks ago at the beautiful Madonna Della Strada Chapel at Loyola University in Chicago.  Madonna Della Strada is definitely a grand place to get married if you are having a church wedding!  After the ceremony we did a few indoor portraits at the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Thank you to Jaclyn, Kyle and the bridal party for braving the wetness to get some amazing shots. After that we went to their reception site that was held at the James hotel downtown. This couple has a terrific sense of style and I loved all the details of their wedding! -Jake

Elizabeth and Matt's Engagement Session

Elizabeth and Matt are such a great couple.  It was a joy getting to know them, and Maggie their beautiful Golden Retriever, during their Engagement Session last month!  I loved that they chose to do their session at an alley by Green Street Smoked Meats,  on the Kinzie Street bridge and in the Mary Bartleme Park!  These locations turned out great and we had a fantastic time! I'm so glad we had a chance to do these photos right before I shot their wedding a few weeks ago!

Here are a few of our favorite images from their shoot:
