niki&tom|engaged // lake katherine, palos heights


chicago engagement photographers, palos heights engagement session, lake katherine engagement session

niki&tom found us by way of nicki&craig, who got married last year. they suggested the goooorgeous lake katherine for their engagement session location, and we were smitten when we got there. it is stunning. especially because we were there on one of the last days that the leaves were still on the trees! and of course i was extra excited because they brought along their pup, shelby, who i’m now completely obsessed with. so despite the fact that it started pouring right in the middle of the session, i think we got some really awesome photos.

we can’t wait for their wedding next year! it’s going to be awesome!

elisa&kevin|engaged // navy pier, chicago


chicago engagement photographers, navy pier engagement session, fall chicago engagement session

almost nothing makes me happier than when bridesmaids from previous weddings get engaged! elisa was one of the many super gorgeous bridesmaids in tina&charlie’s wedding last year. AND she’s also friends with ashley, who was tina’s maid of honor. we absolutely cannot WAIT to hang out with this group again. easily they are some of the most fun people we’ve had the pleasure of working with. and lets not forget – dead sexy dancers.

for elisa&kevin’s session we hung out around navy pier, one of my favorite places in chicago. we got some killer skyline shots, played in the fountain, found the coolest billboard ever, and watched a guy balance a bowling ball on his head. (hey, you never know what you’ll find at the pier!) we absolutely can’t wait for their wedding next year at lake geneva!!

the wellmans|portraits // alfred caldwell lily pool, chicago


chicago family photographers, chicago baby photographers, alfred caldwell lily pool family session, lincoln park family session

holy cow, are we WAY behind on blogging. there will definitely be no shortage of amazing stuff up here all the way through the holidays.

anywho, i need to start this post with a disclaimer. if you are like me, and cry at silly things like the folgers christmas commercials, then you should probably skip straight to the photos. the first time i heard oliver’s story i was a mess for hours. we got to meet the wellman family through (who else?!) jen. we’ve mentioned before how jen is a NICU nurse at the children’s memorial hospital. through her we’ve met lots of amazing nurses, and i will be the first to admit i am blown away by these girls and the jobs they do.

jen met the wellmans when their son oliver was in the NICU for 8 long months. he had been born 14 weeks premature, and weighed just over 2 pounds. you can read all about the wellmans and their journey on oliver’s blog. when jen told they had never been able to do professional family photos before, we decided we needed to change that immediately.

oliver is now almost 2 years old, and is one of the sweetest kids i’ve ever met. he’s just mastered walking and zooms around everywhere. he’s full of smiles and loves sticking his tongue out every chance he gets. he even knows sign language! it was such a wonderful experience to meet him and learn all about his story.

to amy&jeff – your strength is so inspiring. you have such a beautiful family and we’re so glad we could meet you.

bridget&brad|married // riverside receptions, geneva


chicago wedding photographers, geneva wedding photographers, riverside receptions wedding photos

i have two words for this wedding: eye candy. i love, love, love that bridget put so much effort into every little detail at this wedding. as if her and brad’s engagement session wasn’t autumn-inspired enough for you, this wedding just puts it all over the top. we started off at the herrington inn where bridget&brad were getting ready. i wish we could shoot here at every wedding. they also decided to see each other before the ceremony, which i was SO EXCITED about. i cry pretty much every time our bride and groom’s do a first look because the moment is just soooo emotional.

so after some awesome photos along the geneva riverfront, bridget&brad officially tied the knot in the courtyard of riverside receptions and then headed in for their reception! every single detail from the window-pane seating charts, to the wheat centerpieces by floral wonders, to all of the programs, menus, and placecards that bridget made HERSELF, were to die for. i fall in love with it every time i look through their photos.

to bridget&brad – ok, seriously, we. love. you. thank you guys for having us be a part of your wedding. you guys make our jobs the best in the world!
