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.

Caprice and Ryan

Caprice and Ryan got married a few weeks ago in a cute little church in Mokena called Parker Road Bible Church and then partied the night away at CD and Me in Frankfort, IL. We did a bunch of bridal party portraits downtown Frankfort. The weather was sprinkling a bit but the heavy rain held off long enough for us to get all our photos in. Their reception brought back memories because I photographed one of my very first weddings like 15 years ago at that venue. It was awesome to be back there again! It was such a pleasure hanging out with Caprice and Ryan and photographing their beautiful day!

Erica and Jake

Erica and Jake got married almost a year ago at one of our favorite venues: Warehouse 109. This place is located not too far from Chicago in Plainfield, IL and has a really cool vintage warehouse vibe. I love shooting here!  It ended up raining a little bit so they ended up doing their ceremony inside and there were plenty of covered spaces to do portraits on site.  Erica and Jake also used some of our favorite vendors such as Zuzu's petal's and DeEtta's bakery. I loved working with this couple and wish them a Happy Anniversary!

Liz and Seth

Liz and Seth got married at one of our favorite venues: the Mora Farm. This place is out in the country (but not too far) and is full of rustic charm.  They had a cute outdoor ceremony and we did some portraits with a barn and a cornfield as the backdrop.  This bridal party was a ton of fun and I wish I could go back to their wedding and hang out some more. And check out Liz's amazing wedding dress!
