One of the most rewarding parts about being a photographer is the chance to experience tender new family moments like these. Greg and Katie welcomed the sweetest baby girl into their hearts and home and life will never be the same. Spending time with them at the Mellody Farm Nature Preserve in Lake Forest I experienced first hand what awesomely nurturing parents they both are. It was a joy filled afternoon spent alongside the a rustic landscape. Congratulations to you both!

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!

Nothing can really compare to being in the presence of a proposal. It's such a heartfelt and beautiful moment to experience. So when The Heart Bandits asked me to photograph a proposal at the Lurie Gardens in Millennium Park, of course I had to say yay! Waiting patiently for Josef and Rebecca to stroll through the park was the hardest part for me. My excitement took over as I saw them coming round the sidewalk bend. The Heart Bandits had set up photos of the couple on a park bench along with rose petals, champange, and a cozy throw. Rebecca was beyond surprised when Josef went down on one knee and of course she said YES! I'm so excited for this couples next big adventure..wedding planning and wish them a lifetime of laughter and happiness!

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!!
