A blog of our current photography work.

Kristin and Andrew

Kristin and Andrew were married the other week at a unique venue in Chicago called Chez. To me it was a perfect studio space and it was made for me to photograph in! The day started with some getting ready shots at the Sheraton nearby where I got some great doggie portraits, too. Kristin and Andrew had a first look along the Riverfront and we were able to get some skyline shots in at Olive Park before it started raining on us. Once it started raining we dashed back to the bus and hit up Union Station as our back up plan. Thank you to Kristin and Andrew for having me capture their wedding day!

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!

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!
