Nicole & Josh

Nicole & Josh

Nicole & Josh are so in love!  I met Nicole and Josh at a Chicago coffee shop earlier this year.  I knew that I'd have fun working with them when Nicole came with wet hair after her hair appointment gone long.  :)  Anyone that knows me knows that this is my type of girl!  I was thrilled when they sent me the email saying they too wanted me to be their wedding photographer. 


Nicole & Josh have been in the making for years.  Josh proposed to Nicole in one of her favorite Chicago spots - the Lincoln Park Zoo.  So, naturally, we set up the engagement photos to capture this special place.

These two were so fun to photograph.  They were so relaxed - which is a HUGE key to getting photos that look like you.

Nicole & Josh were up for anything - including dancing in the park.  :)  So romantic!  I had to remind myself that I should be taking pictures instead of just watching their happiness.  

This is the kind of love you cannot fake. #love

Nicole & Josh, I cannot wait to photograph your wedding!  When you say that your friends are the most fun, I believe it and am so excited to see & document everyone in action.  Let the countdown begin.  :)

Recently I had the pleasure of watching two of my friends get married in New York.  :)  Here is the VERY happy couple the day after the wedding.  While I attended as a guest (and had a killer time!), I was able to take their engagement photos when they visited last fall.  

Yes, they are wearing matching t-shirts.  :)  Love it!

I do enjoy being a wedding photographer, but I LOVE attending as a guest!  Jordan & Brad's wedding was so gorgeous and a ton of fun.

Nina & Greg

Nina & Greg

I met Nina while working at Kinmont - a former (delicious!) seafood restaurant in River North.  We hit it off and when Greg proposed she asked me to photograph her wedding!  A few weeks ago we met up in downtown Chicago and took their engagement photos.  

It was one of those days on Navy Pier where it was so windy the water was being carried from one side of the pier all the way to the other.  Lucky, Nina has gorgeous, silky hair that wasn't phased by the extreme wind.

The most notable and wonderful thing about Nina & Greg is how much they laugh together.  :)

Nina and Greg, I cannot wait to photograph your wedding this fall.  I know there will be tons of laughter, partying and love all around.  Thank you for picking me to be your photographer!

Brad & Juliette

Brad & Juliette

One of the best parts of being a professional photographer is watching people in love.  Brad and Juliette are the perfect example.  :)  I met them last fall when I took their engagement photos in Soldier Field of Chicago.  Below is one of my favorite photos.  These two love football so much that they purposefully delayed their wedding date until after the season would be complete.

Their wedding was a few weeks ago.  Brad and Juliette wanted to keep the wedding focused on what mattered - their marriage - and less the details.  The ceremony was at Primitive in Chicago and was so intimate and beautiful.  Primitive was such a unique and beautiful venue - the perfect choice for their wedding!

After the ceremony, these two newlyweds walked down to Bin 36 in Chicago for their wedding reception where they met up with more guests.  I can truly say that this was one of the friendliest wedding receptions I have been part of!  Everyone was talking, celebrating, drinking and having a great time overall.
