I photographed the lovely Valerie in Chicago’s Grant Park last fall. She was in the middle of moving out of Chicago so she wanted her session to have an urban, yet natural feel that could only be found downtown and well, let’s just say we had a blast. Take a look!
Here she is doing a headstand in the park.
Thanks for a fun evening, Valerie! Om.
Or, at least I do!
As winter is finally coming to a close here in Chicago, it is fun to look back at this past winter. This is an adventure into Rocky Mountain National Park. It was serene and absolutely wonderful. I can’t wait to go back.
I am beyond honored (and extremely excited) to announce that Jamie & John’s Open Secret Studios wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty! This wedding was certainly one of my favorites from last year and I am so honored to have worked with such an amazing group of vendors to make this day everything that it was. What a day.
Happy first day of April everyone!
I am not quite sure how this happened, but as I was looking through last year’s blog posts I realized that I never posted this wedding. The good news is that it should bring some warmth on this cold Chicago day!
Amy and Mike said I do amongst their closest family and friends in Amy’s aunt and uncle’s amazing backyard in suburban Long Grove. It was simple and absolutely wonderful day. Despite the persistent thunderstorm that came through, the day went off without a hitch! Amy and her bridesmaids walked down the aisle barefoot and wore matching toe rings that were gifted to everyone just before the day started.
It was quite the day and I was so happy to be there to document it all. Congrats to Amy and Mike.
Take a look!
I loved the guy’s suits and ties.
And then the rain started, but that didn’t stop Amy & Mike!
Thanks for letting me be part of your day, Amy and Mike. Congratulations!
Anna & Steve are getting married this coming May at Chicago’s Loft on Lake and from what it sounds like, their day is going to be so much fun!
We recently did Anna & Steve’s engagement session on the snow-covered grounds of Lincoln Park Conservatory with their two amazing dogs. It was cold, but they were troopers! Also, if you know me, you know that I love winter and I was so excited to do this wintery session.
Enjoy and Congrats to Anna and Steve.
Once we got chilly, we just headed inside the Conservatory to warm up. It couldn’t have worked out any better.
I will see you two again in May and I simply cannot wait!
I was recently was asked to photograph this family twice this year. First, when Conor was six months and again when he turned one. It was so much fun to see how much he had changed over that time.
Take a look!
Thanks for letting me photograph your wonderful family and I am looking forward to next time!
Congrats you two, thanks for sharing your day with me!
Kaylee & Chris exchanged vows in November and could not have picked a more wonderful day to be outside. The weather was gorgeous, there was still some color on the leaves and they were all smiles all day long. Rather than having an engagement session, we spent two hours touring the city in the warm November light and had so much fun.
Kaylee & Chris were married at the beautiful Wicker Park Lutheran Church and followed it up with a celebration at Revolution Brewery. Fleur designed the beautiful arrangements, Style Matters had everyone dancing and the craft beer was flowing.
Everything about the day was absolutely lovely. Take a look!
From Lake Michigan, we headed in to the Lincoln Park Conservatory.
And then we were off to meet all of their friends and family before the ceremony started.
And then it was time to say “I Do” and celebrate! I can’t wait to share the rest of the photos in Part Two!
Congrats to Chris and Kaylee.
Then it was time for everyone to hit the dance floor!
The bride’s brothers make up the band, The Brothers Tabor. So they took the stage after a bit and were joined by the father of the groom… and eventually the bride!
Once again, congrats to Angela & Chris! Thanks so much for letting me be part of your day.
