A blog of our current photography work.

Rachael and Mike

Rachael and Mike got married a couple of weeks ago at St. Chrysostom’s Church in Chicago. One great thing about church weddings in Chicago is that they are all gorgeous old buildings with interesting architecture and character. St. Chrysostom’s fits that description! Before their sweet ceremony we went around the city to do some portraits with the bridal party. We started at Newberry Library/Washington park, then over to North Ave beach for a few skyline shots, and finished up at the Chicago History Museum steps. Their reception was held at one of my favorite venues in Chicago: Galleria Marchetti. Everything went smoothly and I had such a pleasure being a part of Rachael and Mike’s wedding. Thank you to Nicholas Holstein for helping me as second photographer for the day!

Here’s a list of their wedding vendors:

  • St. Chrysostom's Episcopal Church

  • Galleria Marchetti

  • Kinzie Hotel

  • Twigs & Blooms

  • Total Image Hair & Makeup

  • Bluewater Kings Band

  • Bijou Bridal (bride's dress)

  • The Dessy Group (bridesmaid dresses)

  • The Black Tux (groomsmen outfits)

  • An Affair to Remember (Jena & Audra)

  • Sugar Bliss Cakes

  • Sweet Ali's Bakery


Morgan and Tim

Morgan and Tim are celebrating their first anniversary, so we are excited to share a few images from their wedding day last year! 

These two had such a beautiful day, and we were thrilled to work with some of our favorite vendors who worked together to make their wedding so incredible! 

Being able to capture amazing weddings with such wonderful people is such a gift. 

Thank you for letting us be a part of your day, Morgan and Tim.

Christy and Greg's Wedding

Christy and Greg had such a sweet and simple wedding in Chicago this past Fall!  Jaci Weber of Clementine Custom Events made sure everything was seamless and beautiful!  Their ceremony at Galleria Marchetti was the perfect choice of location! Can we talk about their flowers for a second, though?  Sarah of Vale of Enna absolutely blew our minds with her stunning floral creations!  Take a peek at her work!  Amazing!

Please enjoy a few of our favorite images from Christy and Greg's sweet wedding day!

Sarah and Al's Wedding

Love, laughter, and good people.  This wedding had it all. We were so happy to capture these moments with Sarah and Al on their incredible wedding day, and we are honored to have been a part of it.  From their sweet first look, a pit-stop during portraits for ice cream, their sincere and heartfelt vows, to the moves on the dance floor -- this wedding was one for the books.

Take a peek at some of our favorite images from their day!
