50 Years and Counting

50 Years and Counting

This is one of the most amazing love stories I have had the pleasure of documenting!  These two have been married for over 50 years.  What a life they have created!  So many relatives, so many friends.  It was incredible to watch this family celebrate, and celebrate they did!

One of my favorite things about this family is how much they like to dance!  The music was pumping.  :)

The endurance, strength and love between these two is something to admire.  To many, many more years together!  Thank you again for choosing me.  
 

XOXO,

My friend Natalie and I decided to try our hand at a styled wedding shoot.  Wow did we hit the jackpot!  All of the vendors and models were unbelievably talented and professional.  Check out some of my favorite shots.  :) 

Let me introduce you to Bella Wholey - stunning actor / model in the Chicago area.

City View Loft in Chicago is the perfect event space with lots of great windows and a view of the city.  Plus, it is a great size with tons of flexibility.

Mignonette Bridal supplied the dresses.  This was was so cool - it has a satin finish (you'll see later) and also a lace sheath to wear over the top.

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.
