5 awesome facts about val&jeff’s wedding:

1) jeff is the assistant trainer for the chicago bulls and val works for the united center. that gave us some pretty amazing access for really unique wedding photos.;)

2) val, jeff, and jeff’s mom made approximately a gazillion origami paper cranes to use as a backdrop during the ceremony!

3) the blue angels were practicing for the air&water show, and provided us with some pretty nifty backgrounds while taking bridal party photos.

4) we got to sit at the best table during the reception. they promised to get the dance floor jumping and they did not disappoint.:D

5) custom bobble-head cake toppers.

yay! i’m so excited to finally be sharing this engagement session! kaitlyn&mike were one of three engagement sessions we did up in lake geneva this year. and really, could you ask for a more picturesque background for photos? these two are super cute. we started the session on the dock that kaitlyn grew up on, then went and checked out the campus of george williams college, and finished up at the yerkes observatory! can’t wait for their wedding next summer at the shedd aquarium!

elisa&kevin|married // the abbey, lake geneva


chicago wedding photographers, lake geneva wedding photographers, the abbey resort wedding

5 awesome things about elisa&kevin’s wedding:

1) their wedding was in lake geneva. we loooove us some lake geneva.

2) portraits by a willow tree and on elisa’s parent’s boat. quite possibly, my two favorite places to take photos.

3) late night snack featuring kevin’s favorite fried chicken. (late night wedding snacks are making us fat. :P)

4) elisa’s dad plays killer air guitar.

5) there were four — count ‘em, FOUR — of our couples at this wedding. tina&charlie, ashley&scott, elisa&kevin, and elisa’s sister, kim, and her fiance, alex! that would be a record, folks. not to mention all the familiar faces in the bridal party and the rest of the guests. special prizes if you can spot them all.;)
