A blog of our current photography work.

Kaitlin and Michael

Kaitlin and Michael had the sweetest wedding in Chicago.  Their style is right on, and every last detail, pulled together by Plum and Ivy Events, was stunning!  We were once again floored by the incredible florals by some of our favorite designers over at Flowers for Dreams

They couldn't have ordered a more spectacular Chicago day, and we loved having the chance to get some shots of them and their bridal party before ending up at Artifact Events for their beautiful reception, complete with custom cocktails and amazing music by Spoken Four

Erin and John

Erin and John got married this past February at the fabulous Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago.  Their ceremony and the reception were held upstairs in Skyline Loft.  We are obsessed with the lighting and drapery and that Art of Imagination put together and the flowers from Steve's Flower Market were gorgeous.  It was wonderful to work for the Kielty family again (I photographed Erin's sister's wedding 7 years ago) and I had a ton of fun capturing all the crazy dance floor shenanigans.  Check out some of my favorite photos from their day!

Here's a few of Erin and John's vendors: Craft beer/furniture/copper bathtub: Venue Logic Decor (lighting, draping): Art of Imagination Flowers: Steve's Flower Market Chalkboards/calligraphy : Me!

Monika and Ron

A couple of weeks ago I met up with Monika and Ron in Chicago for their engagement session.  Since it was the beginning of March we decided on the Lincoln Park Conservatory for warmth.  But it ended up being a pretty warm and sunny day so we ended up going outside for a bunch of photos at the nature boardwalk.  Monika and Ron are a great couple and easy to work with. I am so excited to photograph their wedding this coming May!

Samantha and Kyle

Samantha and Kyle got married this past fall at Morris Country Club. I met up with Samantha at her parent's home for some getting ready shots and the plan was to go to the venue for a first look and bunch of outdoor portraits but by the time we got to Morris Country Club it was pouring rain.  I quickly found a spot to do the first look in the entryway and Samantha and Kyle didn't miss a beat. We grabbed some umbrellas and went outside. We didn't last long out there but still had a grand old time!  The ceremony had to be switched to the reception space but by the time it was done the storm had passed and we were able to go outside and take advantage of the sun and the beautiful landscape! Throughout the day Samantha and Kyle had only smiles and laughter and it was such a joy to be able to capture everything. Take a look at a few of their photos! Here's some of their wonderful vendors:

Katie and Jorge

Katie and Jorge got married on a beautiful fall day this past October.  Their ceremony was held in the gorgeous Baker Memorial Church and their reception was just a few blocks away in the Rainbow Room at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, IL  We did a bunch of bridal party portraits along the fox river and tried to get their puppy in on the action, too!  Jennifer and I had an amazing time working with Katie and Jorge and loved every bit of their wedding. Check out a few of our favorite photos from their day! Here's a list of some of Katie and Jorge's vendors:
