Shooting this Engagement Session was so much fun and I'm back working with this family for the second time . In 2014 we photographed Holly's sister's wedding !!!! When Holly called me for her 2018 wedding we just knew we were a match to work together!! I can't help but love what we captured on a beautiful spring evening in a gorgeous place that is one of my favorite locations to shoot ! Thank you Holly & Matt !! Looking so forward to your May 27, 2018 wedding !!! Hope you love this sneak peek from that fun evening !!!
Our first spring wedding of the year was in Chicago with John and Michele ....bright blue sunny skies dominated all day and warm temps filled the air ...we started at the Wit for prep photos and after a first look on The Hangover we ventured down to Wacker Drive for some great images ...then we hopped on the trolley and headed to the most beautiful church !! John and Michele were married at Assumption Church which is one of the most beautiful churches we have been in ! After some fun altar pix of the family we headed back to the Wit for more pix and Cocktails ! As the night progressed it was a fun party and everyone had a great time ! Congratulations John & Michele!!
Acquaviva Winery in Maple Park , IL was the perfect backdrop for this adorable and fun spirited couple!! Leesa and Ryan are high school sweethearts from Sycamore, Illinois . They tied the knot on June 4th on the patio of this amazing venue ! The day started out stormy and wet but by afternoon the skies cleared making way for some really picture perfect moments ! Leesa incorporated some really cute Pinterest ideas into the day which added special touches to their Wedding Story!! From the "Wait till you see her " signs to the Mom & Dad hankies ( which were personalized ) and given as gifts...to the vintage door used in the reception for the seat arrangement . Then there was the vintage sign for seating of the ceremony coupled with tin pots with burlap and florals bursting with bright sunflowers. Everything melded together in a beautiful way as all of their wedding wishes and dreams came true ....the topper was being able to photograph them in the winery ...how gorgeous !!! Congratulations Leesa and Ryan and Thank you for having us !!

Sam & Casey enjoyed a beautiful wedding in Crystal Lake , IL on August 8th with a ton of friends and family . The Wedding took place at St Thomas Catholic Church and the reception was held at the Holiday Inn. Beautiful classic touches were bountiful in their theme and Samantha was a classic bride ..beautiful in her gown and cathedral veil ! The reception was elegantly planned out with the classic touches of gold and cream with greens such as hydrangeas and elegant topiaries adorned the tables . Their day was filled with a lot of love and laughter that was evident as we documented their day !! Congratulations Sam & Casey !!! We wish you many more happy years together!!!
