Being in this years Indie Wed wedding show was definitely highlight for us! Joe and I were excited to see so many familiar (and talented) faces at this years show. We worked really hard to highlight our booth and I think we did just that and more! With a custom chalkboard and beautiful fresh arrangements by the uber talented Becca Blue Flowers to help make our booth smell and look fresh! We enjoyed getting to meet a handful of really nice couples and got to share with them what we are about. Thanks to all who stopped by to say hello!!

It has been a whirlwind the last few weeks as we settle into the married life! I love this photo of me and Joe walking down the aisle for the first time as Mr & Mrs. Bankmann! I especially love the expression on my face, it's the Ahh..we did it face!! It really was the best day of our lives! So many beautiful memories were created that day and we were so blessed to be surrounded by all our family and friends! And of course we couldn't have pulled it off without our rock star team of vendors (more to come on who they were!) Thanks for all the love!!

This past Sunday morning a group of vendors met for the first time under the El tracks in Ravenswood to meet, greet, and collaborate on this shoot that Elaine from Shadowbox Dreams had been putting together for while. I think I'm not the only one who left that sunny morning totally inspired and grateful to be part of an industry that is so supportive, collaborative, and full to the brim with creative energy. Each of these ladies not only brings talent to the table but personality and passion for what they create. Thank you Elaine for inviting me to be a part of this fabulous group of ladies! I hope we can all work again soon :)

The newest member of our family has grown so much since the day he was born! From his first days in the hospital to living the sweet life in his comfy new home. It's been fun being able to capture some of this cute lil guys first photographs. I can't wait to continue to capture future moments for him and his family to look back on. Now, stop growing Derek! You are getting too big:)

It's so nice when I get to meet a Instagramer couple in person! So when Sukara asked me to take holiday photos of her , her fiance Greg and pup Benson I jumped at the chance to meet this cute (and sweet) couple in person! For there fun holiday session we created a few small sets in the Coach House to photograph them in before heading outdoors to enjoy the beautiful and unseasonably warm December weather (it was in the 60's)! They were such a cool couple to photograph and I really was digging there laid back wardrobe selections as well. A special thank you to Janelle of Re:Find Joy for the holiday props and for creating the custom chalkboard hand lettering holiday greeting! Season's Greetings to you all :)

Where do I begin with this couple? Not only are Colleen and Alex high school sweet hearts but they lit up our session with so much love and positive energy that my face probably hurt just as much as theirs did from smiling so much throughout the afternoon. I secretly think they made the sun shine brighter and warmer on this beautiful Fall Sunday afternoon. Joe and I truly couldn't have asked for any more. A special thanks to Shadowbox Dreams for the vintage prop rentals. Thank you so much Colleen and Alex for inviting us be in your lovingly playful presence!

We started off our engagement session with Bethany and Joel last week on a beautiful sunny fall day at there new home in Old Town. From there we walked to the Lincoln Park zoo and spent the rest of the afternoon getting to know this adorable couple while capturing there affection for one another. We were able to capture so may great shots of them together, that it was hard to stop shooting. Joe and I are so excited to be invited to spend the day with Bethany and Joel again next August when they say there I Do's! We can't wait!!
