Alyce and Shane are golden!

Alyce and Shane are golden!

I have never seen two people light up a room quite like Alyce and Shane. I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting them both at a wedding earlier this year, Shane confided that he planned to ask Alyce to marry him the following week (and of course I eagerly gave him my business card!). Their plans to keep things small, possibly even elope, changed quickly as their guest list multiplied. The next thing they knew they were planning a wedding […]

 

Baby Elle

Baby Elle

I first met Elle last year before the holidays when she was still just a baby. Now she has blossomed into an adorable, bubbly, and very mobile little girl. Who could resist these bright blue eyes and toothy smiles? What a fun afternoon of photographing Elle and her parents, even the dog participated. I am so pleased with the results of this portrait session, and I am quite sure that Elle will be even prettier the next […]

 

Jana and Erik- so happy together

Jana and Erik- so happy together

I spend most of my time photographing couples before their wedding and on their wedding day, and rarely do I have the chance to follow up with them after the wedding (until the family unit expands to include a puppy or a baby). When Jana contacted me about photographing her and her husband, I was so excited! It’s extra special to photograph a successful marriage, they have celebrated 6 years together and are so in love. They met one fateful […]

 

Nicole and Dyer are married!

Nicole and Dyer are married!

Nicole has a smile that could rival Julia Roberts, and the person that makes her smile most is Dyer. Perhaps his wonderful dance skills won her over, or maybe it was one of his other great attributes that captured her heart, but there is no denying that they make each other very happy. Their wedding at Kitchen Chicago was full of beautiful moments and lovely details, they planned everything perfectly down to the delicious food provided by Pure Kitchen. One […]

 

Chelsey + Travis = Funky love!

Chelsey + Travis = Funky love!

The rain didn’t stay away, in fact it poured. We had to improvise, compromise, and change a few things around. And it never once diminished the joy and love that everyone was feeling that day. Chelsey and Travis were so happy it was contagious, their metaphorical cups were full and running over with love. The sun came out just in time for some photos in the garden, they exchanged vows under the tent while the sun was setting, and even […]

 

Marriage Mondays- Wedding vows and zombies

Marriage Mondays- Wedding vows and zombies

I know I say this all the time, but I really do love my job! Not only do I get to meet great couples and document their weddings, but I also get to work with my friends. I have photographed two weddings in the last month for friends, and it was so flattering to know that I was the first person (and only photographer) they contacted. Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Jason and Carrie’s […]
