The best way to jump start a wedding weekend? Capture love in action by photographing a wedding proposal with the greatest cityscape as your background. Planned by the best Proposal Event Planners (aka) The Heart Bandits- Along with the talented Run for Cover the University of Chicago's A Cappella group sang the couples song "Sweet Disposition" while CJ got down on bended knee to propose to his love Elizabeth in front of Buckingham Fountain. Elizabeth's surprised reaction was priceless and made the whole moment so amazing to capture! Congrats to you both CJ +Elizabeth- this is just the beginning!

Joe was the real mastermind behind this whole project from start to finish. I was his assistant (and safety police) while running the 8 ft planks through the table saw. Since we don't have a basement we lived with sawdust in the air for about a week straight. But all the cleaning afterwards was well worth the finished piece. Our table now serves as a place to meet with clients and we are excited to be hosting my family next weekend for lunch too! We so look forward to creating many more happy memories around our newest addition.
When we first met up with Jamie to talk about what she was envisioning her Engagement session to be like, little did we know that she already had her favorite spot on the lakefront picked out. Loyola Park is a special place that Jamie and Chris visit regularly either by taking long walks or by riding their beach cruisers. Needless to say that our engagement session was one of our favorites to photograph for sure! It's so special to spend time in an area that means so much to a couple. We cannot wait to photograph Chris and Jamie's beach wedding this summer too!!
A few weeks ago, Joe and I jumped at the chance to adventure around the quaint Michigan town of Sawyer, with an amazingly sweet couple Chris and Criss! Chris's childhood summers were spent in Sawyer at his families cottage. We met with them their first for coffee and chatted about how we would spend our day traveling around the town together stopping on the side of the road whenever something caught our eyes. And boy, this little town did not disappoint, with its choices of beautiful rustic barns (check out the one covered in leaves!), open fields, and surrounding wineries. We had a blast hanging out with Chris and Criss while chasing the Michigan morning light. And what better way to end our engagement session than by savoring the local beers at The Round Barn Winery. We can't wait to capture your wedding story next year!!
What could really be any better than knowing that your friend has found the love of her life? The only thing that almost tops such great news is when my friend asked me to follow her into an apple orchard and help capture that love! We arrived at Royal Oak Farm Orchard just as the sun was starting to set and most of the patrons were starting to head out. It felt like we had the entire orchard to ourselves, which was amazing! I am so over the moon happy for Danny and Alise and cannot wait to be attending their barn wedding soon!! Cheers to the happy couple!
Andy and Malerie are married! Here is a quick peek into their gorgeous beer garden wedding. We LOVED following them and their (awesomely cool) family and friends all day to capture the best moments! Guys, we can't wait to show you the rest!!
