we often joke that everyone we photograph has a secret model inside of them dying to get out. well in the case of this wedding, we had actual models in the bridal party. no pressure, right?;)erika and her fabulous siblings have all modeled professionally, and it was so much fun to get to work with them at this wedding! on top of that, this was our first wedding down at the university of illinois campus! i’ve never been to a big ten campus before, so i was particularly excited about this one.

erika&chris planned a positively gorgeous wedding, chock full of awesome photo-op locations and perfect details. my personal favorite parts of the day? in no particular order – erika&chris’s first look at their home; erika’s drop-dead-gorgeous dress; and the looks on erika’s brother’s faces as she walked down the aisle. (seriously, it was so cute.)

erika&chris – thank you so much for having us as a part of your day! it couldn’t have been more perfect!

ainslie|portraits // downtown, long grove


chicago children

little miss ainslie is one of my favorite babies of all time. when we met her last year she was the smiliest baby we’ve ever seen. this time around she took a couple minutes to warm up to us, but oh boy, once she did we were all best friends! nothing makes me happier than getting to hang out with some super fun clients in an awesome location like downtown long grove. in fact, we had so much fun that when we were done, ainslie didn’t want to leave! can’t wait to watch her grow up. she’s going to be stealing some hearts very soon!:D

heather&joe|married // belvedere banquets, elk grove village


chicago wedding photographers, elk grove village wedding photographers, belvedere banquets wedding photos

i have an admission to make… i have fallen madly in love with heather&joe. i mean i am totally and completely smitten with the two of them. the moment i knew it was when they first saw each other during their first look. through a telephoto lens hiding in some bushes (because i’m hardcore like that), i saw heather’s breath catch when joe turned around. i melted into a pool of goo. it was like the epic finale of a romantic comedy was happening before my eyes. i love love.

what else makes me love them, you ask? well most definitely the way they are always laughing when they are around each other. and the fact that heather’s sister gave a reception toast almost completely from movie quotes. and that heather’s other sister sang “in spite of ourselves” by john prine and iris dement as their first dance. and that their favors involved margarita truffles from anna shea’s chocolates (my favorite dessert – EVER!) in shot glasses.

heather&joe – in case you missed, i love you guys. (and tony does too! :D) thank you so much for choosing us to be your photographers!

chicago wedding photographers, hotel allegro wedding, chicago wedding photos

we’re getting really good at these late night friday blog posts, eh?;)once upon a time, in may to be exact, josie&marco threw an epic wedding bash at the hotel allegro in downtown chicago. it was a wonderful day full of family, friends, and totally killer style. my absolute favorite parts of the day (in no particular order):

1) going to goose island with the bridal party. wedding portraits at the loading docks? yes, please!

2) the gorgeous ceremony at st bartholomew!

3) the adorable custom cake topper.

4) every detail of the hotel allegro. ever.

5) some of the best dancing shots we’ve taken.

and those are just the first five that popped into my head.;)josie&marco you guys are fabulous and we are so glad we got to be a part of your day!
