Chelsey and Travis are getting married!

This photo session was love captured through a camera lens. Chelsey and Travis are making the leap and getting married next month.

Meet Carley and Teri… two beautiful blondes that are ultra talented at hair and makeup. We got together for a photo trial to help build their portfolios and they really wowed me! We set up our Anthropology-inspired shoot, and they created two looks per model, both Beth and Kelli looked stunning. I have had the pleasure of knowing both Teri and Carley since Teri’s wedding 3 years ago, and she was featured in Bride’s magazine for her awesome look. I […]

Rachel and Jeremy are married!

Rachel and Jeremy are love on it’s best day- warm and unassuming, beautiful and sweet. There aren’t enough adjectives to describe this wedding, it was perfect from start to finish. With the marriage of two artists, the details were truly wonderful and every moment was heartfelt. From the bowling alley with the groomsmen, to a tearful room during speeches, and then a silly dance party and crazy photobooth, this day was picture perfect. Their ceremony and reception was at the […]

Nicole and Dyer are getting hitched!

Nicole and Dyer are both incredibly charming, she with her beautiful curls and sparkling blue eyes, and him with his strong arms and gentle nature. I was really excited to meet with them last month, we lucked out with great weather as we started our photo session in Lincoln Park. The smiles and laughs came easy, they were great company, full of great conversation, and any nervousness of being captured on film dissipated within the first 10 minutes. I already […]
