Sara and Simon

The Morton Arboretum is one of my favorite places to photograph as the scenery is just breathtaking anywhere you turn. We started with a first look at the Fragrance Garden, then made a stop at Meadow Lake, and then finished out portraits up at the Spruce Plot. It was a wonderful day! Congratulations to Sara and Simon!!

Aleesha and David's Wedding

Aleesha and David were married at the beautiful Blumen Gardens in Sycamore, IL. We love this space, and could spend hours wandering the aisles of plants, succulents and trinkets.  It was the perfect setting for Aleesha and David's late summer ceremony!

These two were so fun to work with, and we absolutely loved all the personal and diy details that they incorporated into their wedding!

Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day!

Scott and Mary's Wedding

Scott and Mary had an adorable wedding at the Oak Brook Bath and Tennis Club  which, coincidentally, is where we were married just over 8 years ago! Mary's dress was simply amazing, and we love that Scott wore a pair of Chucks (same as Jake on our wedding day)!   We truly loved their simple, thoughtful details, their soft color palette and the way everything pulled together.

Please enjoy a few of our favorites from their day!

Paul and Raelle's Wedding

My cousin, Paul, and his beautiful bride, Raelle, were engaged this past winter.  After a whirlwind of events (and with the help of family) they planned and pulled together an adorable, intimate wedding in a matter of only 3 weeks! I was so happy that I was available for their day, and road-tripped down to Louisville with my little sister and my mom to photograph it!

Paul and Raelle had a beautiful day.  The forecast looked a little iffy leading up to the wedding, but they ended up with absolutely amazing weather for their day.

They were married at historical Shawnee Park in Louisville.  Raelle's grandfather performed the ceremony.   The vows were short, sweet, and heartfelt. The laughter was genuine, and the company was unbeatable!  All the guests had fun mingling, dancing and playing lawn games.

Take a look at a few of my favorite photos from their wedding!

Congratulations, Paul and Raelle!  Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day!!
