kara&ethan|engaged // lincoln park, chicago


chicago engagement photographers, chicago wedding photographers, lincoln park engagement session

you know what i LOVED about kara&ethan’s engagement session? (other than the fact that they love wine – and i do too!) they wanted to start their session at their home. as you can see, they have an awesome place downtown! i think it’s so great that we were able to get some killer photos in a place that really means a lot to them.

after hanging out at their place for awhile, we hit up lincoln park! (where we ran into november groom, kenny, on his way to a softball game! small world, eh?) we had a fabulous time with these guys and can’t wait for their december wedding in arlington heights!

alice&dave|married // four points sheraton, schiller park


chicago wedding photographers, itasca wedding photographers, four points sheraton wedding photos

i love when fate just leads us to our couples. alice&dave found us in quite an unusual way. most of you may know this, but for those who don’t, tony loves video games. he’s probably played every game in existence at least once. so of course, way back in 2010 when the newest halo game came out, you can bet that tony was standing in line for it at the midnight launch. and that is where he happened to meet dave. they got to talking while they stood in line and it turned out dave was engaged and happened to be looking for a wedding photographer. the rest, as they say, is history.

as we mentioned in their engagement post, alice&dave are just fun. they’re a blast to hang out with and just want everyone around them to have a great time. so you know their wedding was one big, epic celebration with friends and family. there may or may not have been a multi-generational “cotton-eyed joe” dance off at the reception. that’s how much fun it was.

to alice&dave – thank you for making our jobs so easy!:Dwe had such a great time at the wedding and are so happy for you guys!

kim&cam|engaged // lincoln park, chicago


chicago engagement photographers, lincoln park engagement session, chicago skyline engagement session

there are quite a few reasons that i’m super excited for kim&cam’s wedding. 1) they’re awesome people. duh.:P2) they’ve hired some of our favorite vendors! 3) it will be our first wedding at the sofitel in chicago! woot! 4) they’re so flipping cute together it’s ridiculous. no. i mean it. it’s ridiculous. 5) i call them kimcam. because it’s fun.

so i am all about personal touches to engagement sessions and so many of our clients recently have incorporated something that’s important to them. in this case, we went to the spot where cam proposed (awwwwwww!). then we meandered our way through lincoln park getting tons of awesome stuff along the way. i don’t know how we’ve gotten so lucky to have such amazing light at all our sessions lately – but i sure ain’t complaining! can’t wait for their november wedding!

wanyun&andy|engaged // hyde park, chicago


chicago engagement photographers, chicago bridal photographers, university of chicago engagement session, nighttime chicago session

so, i don’t wanna brag and say that people fly to chicago from all around the world so we can take their photos… but wanyun&andy DID come all the way from singapore for their engagement session.;)these two are some of the coolest people we have EVER met. they both went to university of chicago where they met and started dating. after graduation they moved back to singapore, where they live now. we are so incredibly honored that they chose us to take their engagement photos while they were here on their trip!

since this was their first trip back in about 5 years, they had looooots of ideas on where and what to shoot. we had more than a few outfit changes (5, to be exact) and went to a ton of locations – all around the university of chicago campus in hyde park, the restaurant where they had their first date, the apartments they used to live in, millennium park, state street, navy pier… it was EPIC. (and this time, i can honestly say that i mean that 1000%!) wanyun even brought a wedding gown so we could take bridal photos as well!

wanyun&andy – it was wonderful getting to know you guys. you’re such a beautiful couple! good luck with all the wedding plans.:D(and thank you so much for pineapple tarts. we’re officially addicted!)

Dr KK Seet - The great Henri Cartier-Bresson used to say : “To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms that give that event its proper expression.”
These pictures are brilliant precisely because the obvious joy of the couple is framed and captured with such seeming spontaneity by Gina & Tony. This set of photos certainly ranks among the best wedding/engagement pictures I have ever seen.
William and Kate, eat your heart out!
