So excited to see Elyse + Brian's Classic Summer Chicago Wedding featured on the Borrowed and Blue blog today! We had the most fun with these two and their families last summer at the beautifully elegant Cafe La Cave. I loved how they incorporated traditions from both their Indian and American cultures- white horse included! Check out the feature to see more from their bright and colorful wedding. xo

Ally and John are THAT couple... the ones you meet with over beers and comfortably feel like you have just made a great new connection with. Which is no surprise that this laid back couple first met at a summer BBQ thrown by mutual friends. John knew that Ally was the one when they took their first vacation together to see the Cubs spring training in Arizona. After spending 4 straight days together just 3 months into their relationship he just knew that they were headed to forever.

One of their favorite first memories involved a night when John invited Ally and a few friends over to his tiny 1 bedroom apartment for dinner. Since John only owned 2 sets of silverware- his dinner guests had to BYOF (bring their own forks)! Sharing so many interests together like taking road trips, bike rides, and visiting breweries to name a few- Ally and John wanted their wedding to reflect their causal and fun natured spirit.

Which made the Illinois Beach Resort in Zion IL the perfect natural backdrop to exchange their vows to each other in a private ceremony along the shoreline of Lake Michigan surrounded by their closest family and friends. A mutual friend of Ally and John's set the stage for officiating an intimate ceremony followed by a beautiful reception featuring floor to ceiling windows displaying panoramic views of the beach below. Named one of the Top 10 Best Outdoor Wedding Sites by The Knot Chicago Magazine I love photographing at this unique venue located only 40 mins from Chicago because it feels worlds away from all the urban hustle.

Thank you to John and Ally for inviting us to capture their amazing day and for showing us that all you need is a white glove (that lights up) and a champagne bottle to channel Michael Jackson's sweet dance moves all while keeping the dance floor alive- cheers to many more first dances! xo

It's genuine and caring couples like Carissa + Doug that make life as a full time photographer worth all the sweat, hustle and happy tears!  Thank you both so much for inviting us to capture such a beautiful day at the Ivanhoe County Club. We love you guys 🙂 Here is more from the bride Carissa:

"Liz and Joe are excellent photographers! They did a wonderful job throughout the whole process of doing our wedding pictures. They were flexible and worked with our schedule and timeline. The pictures they took of us were very natural and of a high quality. They pay attention to detail too! I love the unique types of pictures they are able to capture. Liz and Joe are both great people to work with; they make you feel comfortable when planning the details and throughout the day of your wedding. If you want your wedding captured to the fullest, hire Coach House Pictures!"

Chicago Wedding Photographer, Belmont Harbor, Summer Engagement

It's not everyday I get to retrace the steps to where someone proposes to spend forever with their love. That's exactly what I did on Sunday when I met Julia and Mike at the lakefront at Belmont Harbor around sunset. Seeing how they embraced each other almost every change they had the opportunity to was such an endearing experience to be in the presence of. I can't wait to capture and celebrate along with their family and friends at their July wedding at Volo Restaurant.

Last week's Olive Park/ South Pond Engagement photography session with Ashley and Sean was the sweetest. We had so much fun touring these beautiful landscapes together and getting to know one another against the Fall urban and natural backdrops.

Thats whats so great about photographing in this great city- so many perfect landscapes to compliment any couples style and sense of adventure. We can't wait to see which photos they use for their save the dates and are over the moon excited to capture and celebrate alongside them at their downtown wedding in September 2017!  Congrats and cheers to you both!

We were so thrilled to be a part of this years Wedtoberfest event for the second year in a row.  Wedtoberfest is an alternative wedding show that includes all the fun of a beer festival within a casual and stress free wedding planning environment. Joining forces with many talented Chicago wedding vendors  at the amazing Architectual Artifacts venue in Ravenswood.  Joe and I love the kinds of couples we meet at this show simply because they are our ideal clients and we get so excited to chat with them and hear all about their unique and exciting wedding day plans.  And no doubt that Joe loves to do some beer tasting in between meeting newly engaged couples too.

The vibe of this show is unlike no other tradition bridal show in that it has a very laid back feel and we love that we only get a round table to display our photography products and portfolio. It makes for an easy setup and tear down which at the end of the night is really nice. But what we really get excited to show potential clients are all the custom print products that we love to help envision their wedding day come to life with either wood canvases, mounted prints, mini accordian books, wood box with prints and of course everyones favorite our Heirloom Wedding Albums. Thanks to everyone who signed up for our mailing list and remember we are offering a special promotion to all our Wedtoberfest couples we met. That offer is good until Oct 28th. Can't wait for next years show!

Seth got down on one knee this past weekend during sunset on the lakefront to ask his girlfriend Morgan to be his wife! It was the sweetest most perfect way to pop the question. Their evening started with an hour horse and carriage ride around the city and ended at the lakefront with roses, a ring, and lots of sweet cuddling. Congratulations Seth + Morgan!! All this planned by the awesome duo that is The Heart Bandits.

Love is all around today- can you feel it?  I like to think that love for each other should be celebrated on a daily basis.  It's the little things that add up like daily hugs and kisses in the morning with your loved one or cooking dinner together while sharing a bottle of wine. Or my favorite when Joe folds my laundry or makes the bed in the morning- haha- these little nuggets of daily love are what keeps love alive and a daily celebration of appreciation! May you celebrate with your love(s) today and for the rest of the year! xox
