Carly and Michael were quite the pair for this Chicago Botanic Gardens engagement session. They arrived a little bit late to their session (traffic, am I right?) but they we’re so ready for it that we knocked it out regardless! They looked amazing and had a great attitude. We made our way up to the […]

Sometimes I really get to know my clients over time, sometimes they find me a few months out and we don’t have time for an engagement session to meet one another. I really didn’t know what to expect for Allison and Sheldon but I did shoot Allison’s sister Angela’s wedding at the same venue, loft28west, […]

You may remember Michelle proposing to Taylor at the Garfield Conservatory a few blog posts ago. This is by far one of the best first looks I’ve ever captured. These two had so much love for each other and it shows in every image of them together. The look on Taylors face when she saw […]

Andrew and Courtney found me through a mutual colleague. My colleague was already booked but he sent them both my way! They came from Iowa for a visit and wanted to do their engagement session here while they stayed. We had a blast walking around downtown and shooting along the Chicago River. We also ventured […]

It was an honor to attend and photograph an old friends wedding day. Zoe and I used to be friends way back upon a time in middle school. We reconnected when she had news of her marriage and needed someone special to capture it! Of course, I was excited to. But boy I wasn’t ready […]

Nothing could have prepared me for this one. I knew Susan and Micah were a bit different from the rest of our clients from this year but I never knew how intricate they would get with their macabre theme. This wedding is filled with antique skulls, pies of all varieties, a Klingon wedding AND a […]

This venue was one of the coolest rooms I’ve ever been in. The floor was paneled with glass lit from underneath. The room was shaped circular and created this intimate feeling amongst the guests. And the view from the ceremony was just stunning. What a beautiful day! Enjoy!  

We had a lazy Sunday afternoon together in their apartment. It was filled with great artwork, books, motivational sayings, and my favorite—plants! All over. It was glorious as a plant parent myself. They snuggled by the fireplace and made jokes at each other while I snapped away. It was a blast if you ask me. […]
