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!

Kira and Yaniv

We were thrilled to do some portraits of Kira and Yaniv, with their sweet rescue pups Kaya and Pru! We are so looking forward to their wedding in September, and can’t wait to work with Kate of Chicago Vintage Weddings to make some wedding magic!

Kira and Yaniv took advantage of the free engagement session we offer when you hire us, along with the services of CVW for their wedding!

Kaya and Pru were so social and a breeze to photograph! We had so much fun working with Kira and Yaniv to create these images!

Can’t wait for their big day!

Michelle and Michael

Michelle and Michael had the sweetest day for their wedding a few weeks ago. And it goes without saying, that anybody that has a Dog of Honor, are our people!

We had such a fun time hanging out with them, and capturing every moment of their beautiful day. Thankfully, we were able to squeeze in all the portraits with them at the Morton Arboretum before torrential downpours, and had a blast at their reception at County Line Orchard!

We loved being a part of their celebration, and can’t wait to share all of their photos!

Enjoy a little peek at their beautiful day!

Hollee and John

We were so thrilled when our good friend, Hollee, asked us to photograph her wedding that took place a few weeks ago. Hollee and her husband, John, had the sweetest ceremony, surrounded (literally they were in the center of all their family and friends) by everyone they loved. I’m fairly certain there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when they were finished saying their vows.

We loved all the sentimental details of their day, and how they really made sure that their wedding reflected who they are as a couple. We also love that they incorporated photos of their pup, Cooper, who Hollee adopted from us almost 10 years ago when he was a just a little puppy!!

Hollee and John, congratulations on a beautiful day. If we were giving an award for the couple with the most beautiful smiles, you two would win that hands-down. Thank you for letting us be a part of your day. We are so happy for both of you.

Hollee, Happy Birthday! Enjoy the sneak peek.

Anna and Matt

Anna and Matt had such a sweet wedding, and we had so much fun being a part of their day. Fortunately the rain held off for their ceremony at the Winnetka Community House, and we were able to do everything outdoors, as planned!

Anna had the sweetest first-look with her grandfather, and we love that he walked her down the aisle. There were so many sentimental moments and intimate details throughout their day. Anna and Matt are so head over heels for each other, and couldn’t stop smiling the whole day through.

We loved being able to be there to capture Anna and Matt’s sweet wedding, and wish them nothing but the best.
