Meet Laurel & Brian! I can’t wait for their October wedding! But first check out their amazing engagement session.

We met at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art on a beautiful spring morning. They wanted to just enjoy the city they loved for their session so we roamed around downtown, made a stop on Michigan Avenue and ended at one of my favorite wine bars for some celebratory wine! These two are so cute together. It made my job a very easy one!

Here are some of my favorites from their session!

Well this was supposed to be a winter engagement session, but Mother Nature had other plans. Not that I’m complaining. Seventy degrees in February? I’ll take it!

When we realized that we weren’t going to get much of a winter this year (at least not in terms of snow) we decided to switch gears and take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather. Never did I think that I would be able to do a sunset session by the lake in February without wearing 75 layers of clothing!

We started downtown on the riverwalk before working our way to Lincoln Park and over to North Ave Beach for some skyline photos. The light was amazing the entire time and we got a beautiful sky at sunset…. and Gen and Tom looked pretty good too!

I can’t wait for their November wedding in Milwaukee!

I can’t imagine kicking off 2017 with a more fun and amazing couple than Ananda and Rob! You may remember them from their fall engagement session (see that HERE).

I met the ladies at Hotel Lincoln where Ananda was all smiles and laughs before heading out to meet her groom. To say it was a cold day would be the understatement of the year. With the windchill it was single digits. It was cold. It was very very cold. But that wasn’t going to stop up!

We met Rob around the corner were he was waiting for his bride with a horse and carriage. We jumped on board and headed over to Cafe Brauer where they had their first date for a few photos. Thanks to Pickles the horse for being a trooper!

After a very quick run outside with the bridal party we warmed up at A New Leaf where they had their ceremony and reception. Being the incredibly crafty people that they are, most of the decorations and sign were made by them! And a hot chocolate bar?! Yes please!!

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Here are some of my favorites!

Meet Ashley & David! They married at the gorgeous Intercon hotel in downtown Chicago. We were super lucky to get a gorgeous November day for their wedding.

I met the girls for getting ready, while my second photographer Renae hung out with the guys. After a quick first look we headed out to Michigan Ave. for photos. This was a wild day to be downtown! In the hour we were outside we saw protesters, police, street performers and crews putting up the Christmas decorations! They took it all in stride though as we worked around the crowds and tourists for photos.

They said their I do’s in the gorgeous ballroom surrounded by friends and family. Ashley’s dad wins the balance award for the day as he stepped on her veil after giving her away, but caught himself before a fall (see photo below)! After cocktails guest reentered the transformed room for dinner, toasts and dancing the night away.

Congrats again to the newlyweds! Here are some of my favorites!
