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

 

chicago wedding photographer, love, ido, happy valentines day, celebrate love
When Jamie reached out to us after seeing our feature on Wedding Chicks I knew that we had found our ideal client!  When we first met with Jamie to talk over initial wedding day details her energy and passion for her wedding day was what got us excited to work with her and her fiance Chris. That and the fact that they were having a ceremony overlooking Lake Michigan at Illinois State Park Resort was a huge bonus ( psst: we LOVE outdoor ceremonies!) A big part of the start of their relationship revolved around bike riding along the lake front so Jamie made sure that their engagement session AND wedding included her beloved beach cruiser in one way or another! It's always such a great feeling to walk into a venue and just know that all the work the couple has done has really paid off and that it looks like THEIR wedding!

From morning until evening Jamie and Chris' loved ones came together to celebrate the joining of two amazing people. We couldn't have asked for a more fun, creative, and friendlier couple to work with!  Its always a huge honor when a fellow photographer (Jamie is a talented children portrait photographer) invites us to photograph their love story. Here are a few kind words from Jamie:

" I am also a photographer and finding my perfect wedding photographer was tough because of my own artistic visions and high standards, then I found Liz & Joe, the answer to my photography wishes!!!  Liz & Joe were amazing at bringing both my visions and theirs to life in such a gorgeous way...and I am AMAZED at how they brought my fiancé (does not love getting his photo taken) out of his shell! They really loosened both of us up so that we were natural and could have SO MUCH FUN....and we feel so lucky that we can call Liz & Joe new friends, they're that great!! "

Thank you Jamie + Chris for inviting us to photograph such an amazing day!  We wish you a beautiful marriage and many more dirty dancing solos! Love you guys 🙂

Thanks for joining me for my newest monthly blog series I like to call- Friendor Spotlight. Every month I will be highlighting a different Chicago wedding vendor to add to the creative conversation, inspire, showcase the many talented ladies + gents in and around Chicago and to encourage others to lead with love and intention everyday.

Please welcome Emily Talsma of Emily Rose Flower Crowns to February's Friendor Spotlight series. I met Emily last year while shooting her brother's wedding in Chicago. She was in the wedding party and the bride was wearing one of her custom flower crowns. I knew right away that she was someone I needed to connect with and I'm sure glad I did because after our first coffee meeting we found out that we are neighbors and in fact only live about 2 blocks away from each another!

Q: Where does your inspiration come from?

Emily:  I am so inspired by my grandmother, Evelyn Ruth. She wore red lipstick every day, wasn't afraid to be bold in her style (hello, high heels and fur coats!), and was kind to everyone. I feel a little bit of her genes in me every time I prance around in a flower crown. Also, I'll never forget the words Jodi of Giving Tree Photography said to me when I was first starting my businesses: "Always be a little kinder than necessary." That inspires the heck outta me. I want to be kind. More than successful, I want to be kind.

Q: What pushes you to keep creating your best work?

Emily:  When I was getting married, I could not find a flower crown that I liked (or really any at all!) and felt like I had no choice but to make my own. When I make my crowns, I make them with my future clients in mind and try to create things people would actually want to wear on their wedding day - crowns that are aesthetically beautiful and tasteful but are also high quality. I make sure my crowns won't fall apart + choose nicer flowers that look real in photos because that's what I would want!

Q: If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?

Emily:  Don't be so hard on yourself.

Q: When you need to unwind/get away/escape where do you go and what do you take with you?

Emily:  I'm the weirdo that unwinds by cleaning or creating something. It's weird because my job IS creating stuff so it's sometimes hard to separate work from "life" (but I guess that's not a bad problem to have, right!?). As far as "getaways", Michigan will always have my heart. Beautiful uncrowded beaches + wineries with free tastings + the nicest folks around? Count me in.


Q: Favorite place in Chicago?

Emily: I'm trying so hard to not sound like the lamest person ever... Aldi?? My own apartment?? jkkkkkkk (kind of)... My husband and I are such homebodies when we do go places, we're total creatures of habit. Thai Lagoon is our favorite place that we go to. It's the best Thai in the city, hands down!

Q: The best gift you have ever given yourself?

Emily: Not jumping into another office job for the sake of security/comfort and finally doing what I love. I think that one takes the cake. Special thanks to my husband too for that one. He believes in me a crazy stupid amount.

Q: What are you most looking forward to in the new year?

Emily:  Now that both of us work for ourselves, I think we'll be traveling a lot more which is super exciting! We've always wanted to do a road trip across the U.S.


Q:  Favorite book or podcast that everyone should read or listen to?Emily: I'm reading Chronicles of Narnia for the first time right now (super late on that bandwagon...) and it's kind of the best. It's actually a children's book so it's really easy to read and has the sweetest tale, based off of the sacrificial love of Christ.

Q:  3 words that describe you today?

Emily: Goofy, Motivated, Ice cream-craving

I can honestly say that we work with THE best couples. Thankful for this great wedding review from one of our amazing 2015 couples Michelin & Will. They were married at beautiful http://www.qasbasilica.org/ where Michelin's mother and father also held their own wedding ceremony at as well. Their elegant reception was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Chicago. Such a special day for this couple that we were so honored to be a part of. Here is more from the bride:

 "Planning our wedding from a far was a bit of a challenge. We could not have a face to face meeting or see everything in person. Liz & Joe were the absolute best at working through that challenge. When we first decided to consider them as our photographers Liz was great about emailing us materials. When we were pretty sure they were what we wanted they set up a Skype date so we talk through our expectations in detail. A few months before our wedding they set up a meeting with us on a weekend when we were in town to discuss last minute logistics. They also put up with viewing our engagement pictures that we had done in Philadelphia (where we live) so I could show them what I believe are our best angles."

"On our wedding day they were amazing. It was a long, HOT day and their energy kept us going. We were really ready to get into the air conditioning at some points throughout the day but they encouraged us to get a few more photos, which I am VERY grateful for because they turned out amazing. They captured every moment I wanted. Whenever I wanted to snap a photo with a group of friends they were right there. The photos are unbelievably beautiful, my husband and I, as well as our family and friends look like our best selves. Liz & Joe had their work cut out for them capturing difficult subjects: small children, our beloved dog, and our big families, but it all turned out great. We are a relaxed couple - we do not take ourselves seriously and I really think all our wedding photos capture who we are and what the day was to us. I could not be more thrilled. They are the BEST!"

When Kari told me they wished to visit a few special places in the city that meant a lot to her and her fiance Gino- I knew we were in for a very special Engagement session together. Starting at the Lincoln Park Conservatory  where Gino proposed to Kari in front of a small fountain. I couldn't get over her dress and the perfect pop of florals against all the tropical plants.

We then went to a private roof top nearby where Gino used to live and where the first memories of their relationship blossomed. Can you believe those breathtaking views of Lincoln Park and the Chicago skyline?!  I instantly fell in love too!

To end the night we took a stroll through the South Pond boardwalk and toasted with Kari's second love Starbucks.  Add one of the most perfect Fall sunsets to the mix which made for such an intimate and romantic Engagement session.

We can't wait to celebrate with them next year for their July wedding!

When we first met with Amanda last year she excitedly told us that her fiance Luis was working hard to fully restore a vintage 1956 Dodge pickup in time for their wedding weekend!  After long hours of working in his shop at Auto Interiors and Design  Luis made it happen and we were able to incorporate this beauty into their Wisconsin Engagement session (the day before their actual wedding day!) in the cozy town of Burlington, WI.

What started out as a fairly foggy morning ended with clear sun filled skies.  I always love when couples like Luis and Amanda openly and authentically bring so much love and energy to their engagement session. There closeness and affection towards each other was so sweet to capture. The town of Burlington was definitely smiling down on these newly weds last month!Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 11.02.16 AMLuis + Amanda Wisconsin Engagement SessionLuis + Amanda Wisconsin Engagement SessionLuis + Amanda Wisconsin Engagement Session

I had a blast photographing Eric and Natalia's urban Engagement session last week. We started at the beautiful Chicago Riverwalk and ended the evening at Olive Park where I got to know more about their love for Northwestern (that's where they first met), Harry Potter, and musicals. We are so excited to be working alongside Naturally Yours Events for there wedding next July at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago.
