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!
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!

a great celebration! Arabella celebrated in style with a zebra themed birthday bash. Her talented mama- Katie created lots of sweet touches to help pull all the decor together!
It was a great afternoon spent outdoors at their Lake Forest home among close friends and family. Happy Birthday Arabella!!
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.
And we are beyond thrilled to have found such a great book making company as well. Redtree Albums are hand crafted and bound using beautiful Fuji Crystal Archive paper with lay-flat binding. The front and back cover make the best canvases to show case your favorite image, with a single photo that wraps around to the back. We love these albums for there modern and minimalistic take on an heirloom.
It will surely be the best coffee table book you will love to flip through for years to come!
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!!
We couldn't have ask for a more perfect way to jumpstart this weekend by having our FIRST (eek!) official wedding featured on my favorite blog Wedding Chicks. Hop over to see all the gorgeousness from this Chicago Garden Wedding and the coolest couple to date! We loved capturing Andy + Malerie's romantic wedding story. There is truly no better feeling than spending the day in the presence of love, family, and friends. A BIG thank you to Tiffany of A Splendid Occasion for introducing us to Andy and Malerie. We loved working alongside you and your amazing team!!
