{Caitlin+Brian: A Chicago Engagement}

{Caitlin+Brian: A Chicago Engagement}

Whether it was the excitement from the flag football game, or the drinks afterwards, Caitlin couldn’t help but notice her cute co-worker Brian. After a few weeks of playing on the team together, some harmless conversation and drinks with friends, they realized there may be more to it (she gave him a hug goodbye without even realizing the implication, it just seemed natural)… so Brian worked up the courage and asked Caitlin out. As they found their seats at a […]

 

{Alice & Matty: Feel Love}

{Alice & Matty: Feel Love}

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” -Maya Angelou

Alice is a gorgeous woman and a die-hard romantic. The first time we met she saw my ring and asked a few questions, after learning of my New England elopement at the age of 20 she had know every last detail. She was pining for a whirlwind romance of her own, and wasn’t settling for just any guy. Not that there […]

{Kelly & Steve: It’s You I Like}

“It’s you I like. It’s not the things you wear. It’s not the way you do your hair. But it’s you I like, the way you are right now, the way down deep inside you. Not the things that hide you. …It’s you I like.” -Fred Rogers

Kelly and Steve were introduced online by some mutual college friends and spent 3 months emailing back and forth before ever meeting in person. Sometimes words on a page (or email) can be so much more revealing than a […]

{Audrey & Nick: Married at RM Champagne Salon!}

One afternoon I headed downtown to get a haircut from my lovely friend Teri, her friend at the salon had just become engaged and we struck up a conversation.

Not only did she describe the sweetest wedding at RM Champagne Salon (oysters and champagne? yes please!), but Aud was also having her mom’s wedding dress re-made for the big […]

 

{Becky & John: Love and Roses}

{Becky & John: Love and Roses}

“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.” -Paulo Coelho The Alchemist

Sometimes love is so big your heart has to grow a few sizes to take it all in. I think that’s why some say your heart “hurts” when it’s full, it’s just experiencing growing pains. I am convinced that Becky and John’s hearts are at full capacity, perhaps even overflowing, and they give their love happily and freely to those around them. When I met […]

{Julia and Shane are getting married!}

Shane is a good friend of mine, not to mention a damn fine photographer. (Be sure to check him out: Shane Welch Photography) He proposed not too long ago to his gorgeous girlfriend Julia in Puerto Rico, the video is pretty epic (watch it here). We chatted about his wedding plans (after all the weddings we witness in our line of work, it’s always so interesting to see what a photographer chooses to do for his/her own wedding) and tossed […]
