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!

monika&dawid|engaged // downtown, chicago


chicago engagement photographers, grant park engagement session, train track engagement session

you know those people who are so photogenic, it’s impossible to take a bad photo of them? monika&dawid are THOSE people. we’re so happy that monika emailed us when they got engaged.:Dwe first met her last year at meg&dan’s wedding at promontory point! i’ll be honest, the weather for their session was pretty icky. cold, misty and gloomy. however, once the two of them were in front of the camera, you would have thought it was 75 and gorgeous! they were warming it up big time.;)

we started off down by the train tracks just south of the loop. it’s one of my favorite locations in the city. super industrial and gritty. then we popped off to grant park to take advantage of the fact that there were still some leaves on the trees! of course with these two, it doesn’t matter where you put them – they always look good. can’t wait for their wedding next september!

ashley&steve|married // blue dress barn, millburg


chicago wedding photographers, southwest michigan wedding photographers, blue dress barn wedding, pumpkin themed wedding

what can i say about ashley&steve? how about the fact these two are one of the most stylish people i’ve met. or the fact that i’m convinced ashley should plan weddings professionally. or the fact that i wish i could relive this wedding every weekend because it was so much fun.

when ashley&steve showed up to their engagement session and told us they wanted to incorporate fake mustaches, i knew we were going to get along fabulously. i can’t believe it’s been over a year since then! when we got to the blue dress barn (aka – my favorite venue ever), ashley and her girls were hard at work transforming it into a gorgeous, pumpkin-themed, fall wonderland. it was the perfect october day with blue skies and just enough of a crisp breeze to make you want to consume copious amounts of apple-flavored goodies. i was in wedding heaven from start to finish.

to ashley&steve – we really couldn’t ask for more awesome clients. we’re so happy you chose us to capture your day! we love you guys!!
