A blog of our current photography work.

Whitney and Eric

It’s officially spring (I think!!) and with that it means things start to pick up around here. I did some engagement photos for Whitney and Eric a few months ago in the middle of winter but they wanted to take advantage of the spring flowers and hired me to do a second session! I had a blast working with them and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this fall! I was trying to talk them into doing some summer portraits as well so we can get in all the seasons. Hopefully, they take me up on that!

David and Tayler

David and Tayler had a beautiful, Spring wedding in downtown Geneva, a couple of weeks back. Weather looked iffy leading up to their big day, but they ended up with an incredible March afternoon! David and Tayler got ready at the historic Herrington Inn, and had the sweetest first look. David couldn’t keep his eyes off of his stunning bride, and we loved the way his entire face lit up when he saw her walking toward him

We had so much fun doing portraits along the beautiful Fox River, and their bridal party was so fun to be around!

Their ceremony at Riverside Receptions was beautiful and heartfelt, and the florals by Kio Kreations that were along the aisle and draped the Chuppah, were stunning! We love that they had a friend act as their officiant, and the music they chose was spot-on!

Their reception was filled with laughter, great food, dancing and incredible music; provided by the lovely and talented Rachel of Toast & Jam!

David and Tayler, we are so glad you asked us to be a part of your beautiful day. It was truly an honor.

Marionne and Juan

Marionne and Juan had a gorgeous winter wedding at Company 251. It ended up being a really cold and snowy day but we braved the weather and sneaked outside for a few quick shots. Their intimate ceremony was held on the first floor where their dog, Henry, stole the show as the ring bearer. After a few cocktails everybody went upstairs for the reception. While the guests were eating, the first floor was flipped and fitted with a collection of mirror balls for the dancing. The effect was stunning and made for one of the prettiest first dances we’ve seen. Congrats to Marionne and Juan on a beautiful wedding, we are so excited for you to welcome your baby this coming spring!!
