chicago wedding photographers, delaware wedding photographers, maple dale country club wedding

yay! ashley&ryan are FINALLY married!! you guys might remember that my cousin jessica got married this summer. well ashley is her bff. and to echo jessica’s speech at their reception, it just wouldn’t be “jessica&ashley” if they didn’t get engaged a few months apart, and then married a few months apart.

ashley really wanted to do something that set their wedding apart. we chatted for MONTHS, when it finally hit her. both she and ryan are teachers, so why not incorporate it into their day?! ashley spent months collecting antique books, chalkboards, and other teacher-themed goodies to work into the wedding. and the best part? we got to sneak into the school bus yard and take some photos of them having a smooch on the back of the bus! i love that ashley spent so much time making everything so unique to them as a couple. everything came together great!

to my dearest ashley&ryan – we are so incredibly happy for the two of you. you guys are so perfect for you and we cannot WAIT to see what’s in store for you.

christine&ryan|married // makray golf club, barrington


chicago wedding photographers, barrington wedding photographers, makray golf club wedding, gray and purple wedding

i have been so, so, so, so, SO excited to share this wedding with you. why? well partially because christine&ryan are completely and utterly adorable and i love them. but mainly because their wedding can only be described as a fairytale. i don’t know if there’s one detail that has me so smitten. i was pretty much in love with everything i saw.

let’s start with the fact that christine looked like a total rockstar. then add in that they had a killer bridal party, including the cutest flower girl and ring bearer ever. then there was the color palette of gray and purple that had me swooning. and how about a gorgeous church followed by the even more gorgeous reception at themakray golf club. all of the leaves had turned and there was just a beautiful background of fall awesomeness.

and don’t even get me started on the dance floor. seriously, i could talk for hours about how awesome this wedding was, but i’ll just hush up and you can see for yourself.

to christine&ryan – what more can we say?! we are so happy for you! thank you for letting us be a part of such a great day!

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!!
