  • Salvage One Wedding :: Lei & Chris

  • As a wedding photographer, when you have a Salvage One wedding on the calendar, you get really excited about photographing at the venue. It's such a great space - it has several levels full of vintage furniture, a gorgeous outdoor space, and a beautiful bridal area - it's just one of those rare spo [...]
  • Armour House Wedding :: Samantha & Job

  • One of the reasons I take on under 25 weddings a year is so that I have some time to get to know my couples. By the time my clients' weddings roll around, I am genuinely excited for them to wed. Doesn't matter if they do it in spandex or at a dive-bar... as long as I'm surrounded by happy people, I' [...]
  • Grant Park Engagement :: Rachel & Eric

  • Rachel & Eric have been married for a few years now, but I still love this session. As I was looking through all the shoots and weddings I have yet to share (over 150 of them!), this one spoke to me, so here we are. We'll just call this a throwback Thursday post. I just love the colors of the [...]
  • Ravenswood Event Center Wedding :: Ari & Ted

  • I feel so lucky to have met Ari & Ted. I could say so many things about their beautiful summer wedding at Ravenswood Event Center, and about their adorableness as a couple, but in the interest of getting to the photos, I'll just mention a few things that stick out the most in my mind. To b [...]
  • Museum Campus Engagement :: Betsy & Larry

  • The day of Betsy & Larry's session was such a stunning day. The light was soft and hazy, and hitting the skyline just right. Since these two had a Mexican beach wedding, I was so glad that we got a perfect Chicago day to show off their hometown. And of course the weather wasn't the only great thi [...]
  • Monte Bello Estate Wedding :: Brittany & Joe

  • I'm a biased photographer in thinking that all my weddings are beautiful in their own perfect way. Sometimes a gorgeous venue or styling does the trick. Sometimes the beauty is when a bride and groom forego what's traditional and expected and make the day a perfect reflection of their relationship [...]
  • Armour House Wedding :: Kelly & Reid

  • If you can't tell from their first look, Kelly and Reid were super excited to get married. If you can't tell from the amount of photos, I was super excited for Kelly and Reid to get married too (can you blame me? Do you see how adorable they are?!) Throw in their appreciation for photography, my [...]
  • River Roast Wedding :: Amy & David

  • I love that no two couples have the same likes, memories, and inside jokes, and it makes my photographer heart happy when they bring those experiences into their wedding day. A little story from this day: Amy and David used to live right by River Roast, and would often watch people taking weddin [...]
  • Woman's Club of Evanston Wedding :: Gerrie & Mike

  • With the ceremony in Alice Millar Chapel at Northwestern University, and the reception at the historic Woman's Club of Evanston, gorgeousness obviously abounded at Gerrie and Mike's wedding. But, more than the locales, the traditions were my favorite part. Just a few that come to mind: I loved ho [...]
